Will, Estate and Trust Disputes

Because they often involve family members and loved ones in conflict, disputes over a will or trust can be extremely emotional and chaotic. These sensitive matters require respectful, detail-focused evaluation by a lawyer who is intimate with Florida’s estate and trust laws and also skilled in contract dispute resolution.

Some wills and trusts require courtroom litigation. The list of issues that can thrust a dispute into litigation is extensive. Some potential problems include:

  • Suspicion that the trust may be a forgery
  • Questions regarding whether a potential beneficiary held undue influence over the deceased
  • Concerns about whether the deceased was mentally competent at the time the will or trust was drafted
  • The will or trust may lack the proper signatures and witnesses required by Florida law
  • Disagreement may erupt over how to administer the will or trust
