West Virginia Estate Litigation Lawyer
Who to hire when things go wrong.
Most of the time, the estate administration process progresses smoothly, and the focus is on the loss of a loved one rather than the disposition of assets. However, this is not always the case.
In a minority of cases very real and difficult issues are raised in the context of the disposition of a loved one’s estate. When this occurs it is essential to have an attorney experienced in litigating estate disputes. Will contests based on challenges to the competency of a person to make a will, claims of undue influence, or mistakes in the execution of a will are the most frequent type of estate litigation. Litigation may also arise from lost or missing wills or leaving heirs such as spouses or children out of a will. Sometimes there will be questions regarding the administration of a will and of the accounting for the assets. Each of these issues require experienced litigation counsel.
Litigating an estate is very different from drafting an estate or assisting in estate planning. Litigating an estate requires experience litigating complex matters, and often require a blending of experience as to medicine, accounting, the use of experts, and participation in related litigation.
