Standing With You During A Will Contest

Estate administration is very stressful and emotional, especially if a will contest arises. At Herbert Machnik Law Firm, our estate and probate litigation attorneys can help you with all legal issues relating to a will contest.

Serving the Kalamazoo County area, we help a variety of clients, including executors, beneficiaries and other interested parties, as both plaintiffs and defendants. We can also serve as attorneys on behalf of the estate.

Fierce Yet Compassionate Litigation Counsel

Frequently, we can implement practical steps during mediation or private negotiations to resolve a will contest without going to court. However, our staff has extensive trial experience in state and federal courts throughout Michigan. Just a few of the contentious issues our estate and probate lawyers regularly litigate include:

  • Undue influence
  • Forgery
  • Lack of testamentary capacity
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Self-dealing
  • Two or more conflicting wills
  • Disinheritance

Whether you are an executor who is handling estate administration pro se or you are a loved one of the decedent who believes someone is acting malevolently, we understand how overwhelmed you must feel. As we stand up for your rights assertively, you can count on us to treat you with compassion and dignity during a difficult time.

Minimizing Costs, Maximizing Efficiency

Inefficient litigation can quickly drain the estate of assets. We understand the importance of minimizing expenses. Before each major step, we give you a cost-benefit analysis and explain the potential outcome of each decision you make. In every case we handle, our goal is to secure a satisfactory outcome without racking up unnecessary expenses.
