Resolving Estate Disputes

Administering a family member's estate can bring significant legal complexities as well as conflicts. If you are engaged in a will contest or any type of estate litigation in Missouri, it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side.

At Hamra Law Firm, LLC, I provide experienced guidance and strong advocacy to clients in Chesterfield and throughout surrounding Missouri communities. I strive to protect family estates amicably, and, whenever possible, to preserve goodwill in the family. However, I am always prepared for aggressive litigation when necessary.

A Unique Approach To Each Conflict

Estate disputes can take many forms. Some of the most common include:

  • Disputes between trustees and beneficiaries
  • Claims of undue influence (one party coerced or manipulated the testator or grantor during the creation or amendment of the will or trust)
  • Lack of testamentary or estate planning capacity (claims that the testator or grantor was not of sound mind when creating the will or trust)
  • Fraud
  • Breach of fiduciary duty

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to resolving estate and trust disputes. In some situations, conflicts can be resolved amicably through negotiation. In others, traditional litigation is the best approach. I will tailor a legal strategy uniquely suited to the specifics of your case. I am prepared to represent all parties with interest in an estate or trust, including heirs, beneficiaries, trustees and executors.
