As a law firm specializing in fraud, we often see cases involving forged wills, undue influence and elder abuse. While being sensitive to family dynamics, our mission is to protect those who are vulnerable to undue influence and insure that the rightful heirs receive their fair share of an estate.
Unfortunately, greed sometimes motivates caregivers or even family members to take advantage of elderly or incapacitated patients / relatives. The result is often a forged will or a trust document signed by someone too ill or infirm to understand his or her actions.
We gladly represent beneficiaries whose interests under a will or trust are in jeopardy. We also can step in to protect the rights of a vulnerable or incompetent person.
While undue influence cases usually involve the elderly, anyone who is not competent because of disease or mental illness can become a victim. If a loved one suddenly gifts large sums of money to a caregiver or relative and you suspect that he or she isn’t competent, seek assistance immediately. The best time to address these problems is while the person making the gifts or changing the terms of a will is still alive.
We can assist with:
- Forged wills
- Claims against executors and fiduciaries
- Trust mismanagement
- Elder financial abuse
- Will contests
- Undue influence cases
- Ponzi schemes, stockbroker fraud and unsuitable investments
