A large part of Slotkin Law’s practice is representing clients in will challenges. Such a challenge, also called a “caveat”, can arise when a beneficiary believes they have improperly been left out of a will, or otherwise treated unfairly in a will. One common issue is mental capacity: that the person making the will, or testator, did not understand, or lacked capacity to know, what assets they owned, and to whom they were leaving their assets. Another common issue is undue influence, which means someone used a position of trust and confidence to persuade the testator to favor them in a will. Issues also arise when there is no will, also called “intestacy”, or when a will has been lost or forged.
