Handling Contested Estate Matters With Compassion and Skill

Will contests can be emotional and contentious legal matters. At Powell Law Offices, P.C., we have extensive experience helping clients navigate the legal and emotional complexities involved in family disputes.

As an estate administration law firm that has served the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex for over a decade, we understand how important it is that an estate is distributed according to the wishes of the deceased and state law.

Whether you are contesting a will, alleging a breach of fiduciary duty or defending yourself in probate court, we are prepared to provide skilled legal representation so that your interests are represented and defended to the utmost in and out of court.

We can capably handle matters involving:

  • Breach of fiduciary duty. Under state law, administrators and trustees must always act in the best interests of beneficiaries. Failure to do so can lead to legal liability.
  • Fraud. A will, or portions of a will, can be declared invalid if fraud is involved.
  • Undue influence. If a caretaker or someone else has taken advantage of his or her position to exercise undue influence to make themselves a beneficiary or increase his or her share, all or a portion of the will may be declared invalid.
