Every mentally competent adult has the right to make an estate plan as he or she chooses. The law protects the choices made except when a person does not have sufficient mental capacity to make the estate plan or someone has unfairly influenced the person in making an estate plan.
Our firm has the experience to analyze the legal, medical, psychiatric and fact-intensive complexities of mental capacity. We can help identify and bring to light situations where a person takes unfair advantage of someone making an estate plan and convinces that person to benefit another person who was not really an intended recipient.
