During the probate and estate administration process, it is not uncommon for disputes to arise among involved parties. Many times, these disputes are among surviving family members and involve high financial stakes. In these times, it is important to work with an attorney who can help resolve the disputes and minimize the damage to all involved.

Will disputes arise for a number of reasons. Some of the key issues include:

Claims of fraud
Claims that the will was not properly witnessed or signed
