Will Contests

At the Law Firm of Bezaire, Ledwitz & Borncamp, we sometimes deal with family members who are caught off guard by the Will left by a loved one, and they believe that the document doesn’t accurately reflect their loved one’s wishes.

Wills can be contested in several different ways, including:

  • Attacking testamentary capacity (the party didn’t know what they were doing)
  • Alleging Undue Influence on the Testator
  • That the Will was created under an Insane Delusion
  • Fraud (forgery, tricking someone into signing, etc.)
Many cases are won or lost through submission of written arguments to the court…

Will Contests require extensive knowledge of the law and vast experience writing legal briefs. Many cases are won or lost through submission of written arguments to the court, making this a particularly important skill.

The attorneys at Bezaire, Ledwitz & Borncamp have been dealing with Wills, both contesting and defending them, for decades. We know which arguments work, what interpretations of language will best suit the situation, and how the law functions on the most detailed level.
