If you have been appointed to administer a loved one’s estate and a beneficiary files a will contest, you should contact us immediately for help. We understand you are concerned about what it will cost to defend a will contest, but we can actually help with reducing the overall costs while protecting the interests of the estate and its beneficiaries.

There is no formula for determining how much a case will cost. Each case is unique and there are numerous factors that impact the overall cost of defending a will contest, including:

  • The size of the estate
  • The validity of the claim
  • The existence of complicating factors to the will contest claim
  • The amount of time required by your attorney
  • Added expenses, such as the costs of any expert witnesses
  • The amount of any court fees

We can review the case and provide you with an estimate of what we believe it will cost. However, it is necessary to protect the assets of the estate. By hiring seasoned probate litigators, you will safeguard estate assets and you will save money by keeping the expenses under control and ensuring that the case is handled effectively and efficiently.
