The firm secured another Court victory for one of our deserving clients in the form of a judgment of almost $70,000. The award compensated her for the attorney’s fees she incurred to offer a Will for probate in face of an objection made by the adult child of the deceased person to the Will being probated.
Following a jury trial in which we were successful in having the Will accepted for probate, we filed a Motion for Attorney’s Fees based upon the costly conduct of the adult child of the deceased. The Court awarded our client all of the attorney’s fees she incurred against the Estate. She will now recover more than $70,000, including the money she spent doing the right thing.
If you have a Will that needs to be offered for probate, even if one of the Beneficiaries or Heirs objects to the Will, there is a strong chance you can recoup your attorney’s fees from the Estate if you are successful in having the Will accepted for probate. Please contact us, and we will be happy to assist you with that matter.
