Contesting a Will - Let Martin Folino Work For You!

Will Contests and Disputes - Dayton Ohio

Although one of the goals of a will is preventing disputes, wills that were executed fraudulently or incorrectly can be subject to a will contest. At Martin Folino our attorneys have extensive experience representing both fiduciaries and beneficiaries in will contests.

Montgomery County Will Dispute Lawyer

A beneficiary who wishes to contest a will must have reasonable grounds for doing so. Grounds for contesting a will include:

  • Undue influence
  • Lack of proper execution
  • Forgery
  • Incapacity

Our Dayton will contest lawyers represent both fiduciaries and beneficiaries in will contests. If you are a beneficiary and you believe that you have reasonable grounds for contesting a will, our attorneys can thoroughly examine the document to determine whether legal action is possible. If you are a trustee or executor, our attorneys are prepared to defend you in the event that the will is contested by a beneficiary.

In either case, our attorneys utilize a judicious application of legal theory to achieve the best possible results for our clients.

A Will Contest Must Be Raised Within 60 Days

Under the law, a will contest must take place within 60 days. The window for challenging a will is very narrow, so if you suspect fraud or wrongdoing, contacting an attorney within 60 days is absolutely essential. Even if the 60 days have already passed, there may be other remedies that may be helpful to you.
