Contesting or defending an Estate should be a last resort.

But when you need to protect yourself or your loved ones, choose the best. We can help you litigate matters including:

  • Undue Influence
  • Elder Abuse
  • Withholding Information
  • Mismanagement of the Estate
  • Capacity
  • Lack of Clarity in a Will or Trust
  • Contesting a Will
  • Mediation
  • Trust Disputes
  • Restraining Orders

The loss of a loved one is a difficult time for everyone involved. Trust Disputes frequently arise out of this extremely emotional situation, adding to the stress and frustration experienced by families and friends.

Unfortunately, there is no shortage of people willing to physically, emotionally, or financially harm their elders—and it is critically important to retain legal counsel to effectively protect your loved ones.

Attorneys work with an impartial third party to achieve an acceptable resolution to the issue without proceeding to a formal trial. An experienced attorney knows how to balance the demands of the client with the interests of fairness and likelihood of success.

Temporary Restraining Orders can be filed to get the abuser away from your loved one, and after 21 days, a court appearance can be made to file for permanent restraining orders.

The attorneys at Bezaire, Ledwitz & Associates 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.
