Wheaton Attorneys Settling Contested Wills and Estates

The law firm of Stock, Carlson, Oldfield and McGrath LLC in Wheaton, Illinois, has extensive legal experience with handling wills and trusts relating to the probate process, as well as with the estate planning to avoid problems in the first place. We have successfully represented many clients by helping to resolve contentious issues over property division and various estate matters.

Reasons for Contested Estates

One of the freedoms we enjoy is the ability to dispose of our assets as we wish. One way to direct the disposition of one's assets at death is by a will. But sometimes people sign a will without having the mental capacity to know what they are signing, the nature and extent of their assets or to whom they wish to leave their estate. Or it may be alleged that the person signed the will by force, or that the signature was forged.

Family members may file a formal complaint to contest the will in the probate case. This results in a contested estate.

If you are in this situation, you should seek proper legal guidance to ensure your interests are protected. A competent estate attorney can provide you with sound legal advice over contested estate issues. Stock, Carlson, Oldfield and McGrath LLC understands the laws that govern estates, wills, and trusts in Illinois. We are your advocates and can help you seek a resolution in conformity with the law.
