Legal Disputes - Wills and Trusts

Have you ever noticed? Sometimes it's one big happy and loving family... Right up until someone dies and leaves a lot of money.

Battles between beneficiaries or turmoil with a trustee can quickly boil over into a legal dispute.

That's when you need the sowards law firm. Their san jose trust and probate litigation lawyers will provide tenacious representation to trustees and beneficiaries.

Contesting a will often involves an accusation of undue influence , or elder abuse. Think- someone who cuts his or her kids out of the will in favor of a daily caretaker.

Other grounds for contesting a will may include:

  • incapacity
  • misrepresentation
  • fraud
  • improper execution
  • or forgery

Challenging a trust generally occurs when there are questions about the validity of the trust or whether the trustee is acting in the best interest of the trust beneficiaries.

Litigation to remove a trustee may result from a case of theft or fraud, questions about how the trust assets are distributed, or it may be as simple as not keeping beneficiaries informed.

If a family feud has erupted into a legal dispute over a will or trust, you need an experienced attorney who can serve your interest.
