PRACTICE AREAS

General Practice and Will Contests

The attorneys of Wynne & Smith have a wealth of experience in general practice areas from last wills and testaments to trusts, will contests, powers of attorney, probate and family law.

Will contests are an unfortunate fact of life. If you are considering contesting a will, contact Wynne & Smith. There are different grounds for will contests, and specific evidence required in Texas to support those grounds. We can help you understand your rights and the evidence required to make a valid case.

Probate issues are also a trying experience for a family. Disputes are usually caused when a person managing an estate (the executor) is not doing so lawfully, or is not treating the other beneficiaries fairly. The executor may be a beneficiary, trying to keep property for him or herself, or withholding information from the other beneficiaries. In these situations, you need an attorney that is skilled at working towards the most acceptable outcome for all involved.

 

  • Probate Litigation and Will Contests

Probate Litigation and Will Contests

Our probate litigation experience includes representation of clients seeking to contest a will, defend a will, or claiming breach of fiduciary duty by a trustee. We represent the interests of family members as well. Many legal issues involving the family can end up in court. This includes disputes over guardianships, conservatorships, powers of attorney, living wills and trusts. Sometimes, a caregiver outside the family is involved, or there are accusations of financial exploitation. Just because someone has a legal document like a will or trust in place, doesn’t mean there cannot be legal challenges to it. We are here to help make this process as painless and successful as possible.
