New Orleans Estate Litigation Attorney

Lawyer for Will Contests, Medicaid Recover, & More in Orleans Parish

Even the best laid estate plans can sometimes become entangled in litigation. Estate litigation comes in a number of forms, and for a variety of reasons. Will contests may be brought when one party believes that the will was defective in some way. Even trust-based estate plans sometimes lead to litigation when there is a dispute over the legitimacy of the trust or the capacity of the grantor. When you are facing estate litigation during an already-difficult time, Brown Weimer, LLC, can provide the high-quality and aggressive representation you need.

Estate and probate-related litigation can come at a time when you are already facing significant personal struggles in the wake of your loved one's death. Our attorneys understand the difficult position you are in and will tailor our representation to minimize the stress you are under. We will remain highly responsive to your communications throughout the proceedings, and your questions will always be answered by a lawyer.

Attorney for Will Contests in the Greater New Orleans Area

Will contests are one of the most common forms of estate litigation. A successful challenge to a will may cause the entire will to be discarded and the estate to be distributed based on intestacy law. A few common reasons for will contests include:

  • Concerns about the testator's mental capacity
  • Possible defects in how the will is written or executed
  • Allegations that someone had undue influence on the testator or coerced them
  • Evidence of outright fraud

To bring a will contest, you must have an interest in the will. This means that you must either be a named beneficiary or a natural heir to the decedent's estate. If you suspect that you have reason to challenge your loved one's will, it is important to act quickly and contact an attorney as soon as your suspicion arises.
