Informed New York attorney guides clients through will challenges
There are several reasons for challenging a will. Whether you are alleging misconduct or accused of it, it is important to understand the legal reasons a will may be challenged:
Executors have a fiduciary duty to manage the assets of an estate according to the decedent’s wishes, for the benefit of the beneficiaries. The fiduciary must act in total accordance with the terms of the will so that assets are not lost due to waste, fraud, misallocation or mismanagement.
Beneficiaries may challenge alleged misconduct and demand a full account of a fiduciary’s actions. At The Law Office of Tamara I. Jordan, PLLC, we have experience on both sides of probate controversies.
