Fiduciary Litigation

People commonly bring legal action to contest a will.  Inheritance disputes may arise questioning the legality of a will or the trustworthiness of a named personal representative. Family members and friends, including children, stepchildren, and/or former spouses may contest inclusion or exclusion.  In other situations, people may wish to challenge the competency of the individual who wrote or executed a will.  In the greater Baltimore, Maryland area, the skillful attorneys of West, Edwards & Associates have decades of experience in facing each of these scenarios and more through actions involving claims of fraud or malfeasance by a personal representative or trustee, challenges to the valuation or distribution of assets, actions to save or recover assets, actions to replace a personal representative or trustee and actions alleging the exercise of undue influence.
