Any kind of estate litigation may involve a number of different issues, including the following:

  • Undue influence
  • Fraud or duress
  • Lack of capacity
  • Whether a will or trust was properly executed
  • Whether a will or trust is being properly construed or interpreted
  • Whether a trustee is properly administering a trust
  • Whether an executor or administrator is properly administering an estate
  • Whether a surviving spouse, whether mentioned in an estate planning document or not, is receiving all he or she is entitled to under the law.

The attorneys at Heath, Old & Verser, P.L.C. represent family members who have reason to believe that the terms of a will or trust do not conform to the wishes of the deceased. We also represent executors, administrators, and trustees faced with the task of defending themselves.

Life Insurance Litigation

In addition to estate litigation, our law firm represents life insurance beneficiaries in litigation against insurance companies. When a person with a life insurance policy dies, the insurance company is obligated to pay beneficiaries according to the terms of the policy and the law. When insurers fail to live up to their obligations, our law firm will pursue claims against them.
