A person's will should be honored to protect their wishes. Unfortunately, undue influence and fraud can significantly alter the original wishes in a person's will. Is there anything you can do when this happens? You may be able to contest the will to protect your loved one's wishes as well as your rights.

Contesting A Will

At the Family Legal Center, LLC, we have been helping individuals and families understand their legal options to contest a will. Founding attorney Laura Cohen has been handling will contests and fraud issues since 1996 in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, and beyond.

We have represented individuals and family members in will contests stemming from:

  • Fraud, including executor fraud or forgery
  • Undue influence
  • Incompetency

Will contests and fraud are serious matters that need to be handled by an experienced will contest lawyer. Laura Cohen has extensive experience handling these matters and will work hard to find the best resolution for you and your family.

Collaborative Approach Vs Litigation

These cases are complex and often difficult since it involves your family. It may be beneficial to use collaborative law or mediation to resolve the issue outside of court. Laura Cohen is certified in collaborative law and mediation and has decades of experience helping families resolve their disputes.

The collaborative law process does not work for everyone and litigation may be necessary. We have the skills, knowledge and resources to take your case to trial. Whatever route you take, we are committed to protecting your best interests and finding a positive solution.
