According to statute, a will must be properly drawn and its provisions regarding the disposition of the decedent’s assets must be followed. However, the closing of an estate’s affairs is not necessarily a smooth process. At times, undue influence in the creation of a will can lead to one or more parties contesting the will, and accusations of malfeasance during the probate process can result in litigation.
HARK│YON│MARMOR, PLLC represents clients in estate planning, will contests, and estate litigation cases. Our firm, HARK│YON│MARMOR, PLLC, has a comprehensive understanding of these practice areas, and a record of success in estate and probate litigation cases.
