Dallas Will Contest Lawyers

Texas Will Contest Attorneys

Will contests can involve bitter disputes between family members. If you feel as though you were wrongfully disinherited and wish to contest the terms of a will, it is important to align yourself with effective legal counsel. We are the lawyers of Fisher & Welch. Our lawyers have provided strong representation in will contests and other types of probate litigation for many years.

Every will contest involves different, unique facts that can greatly impact the outcome of a case. With that said, many will contests have common themes. For instance, will contests often involve disputes between a second spouse and the decedent's children from a first marriage. In will contests, our law firm typically represents potential heirs who have been disinherited. Our law firm is able to address every type of will contest, including:

  • Undue influence: A will is not valid if it was signed under "undue influence," such as when the person signing the will is controlled or dominated by another.
  • Lack of capacity: If the deceased did not have proper capacity to execute his or her will, the will is not valid.
  • Technical defects in the will: Every will must conform to a number of legal requirements. The failure to do so can invalidate the will.
  • Allegations of forgery or the existence of conflicting wills: Our lawyers will do the investigation necessary to get to the heart of the matter.

When there is an imbalance of resources between the parties, the party with fewer resources may not be able to take a case through to its conclusion. A party with limited resources may not even bring an otherwise valid claim because it cannot pay for a lawyer. At Fisher & Welch, we offer flexible fee arrangements. We regularly accept will contests and other probate litigation on a contingent fee basis. As a result, our clients are able to have exceptional representation without worrying about litigation costs and attorneys' fees during the pendency of their cases.
