Toronto Estate Litigation Lawyers for Executors Defending Will Challenges



If you are the executor of a loved one’s estate, one of the most stressful things about your role is a potential will challenge from a dissatisfied beneficiary or would-be beneficiary. Will challenges can be difficult to deal with during a time that is usually already emotional and stressful. If you are faced with a will challenge, your best course of action is to consult with a knowledgeable estate lawyer as soon as possible to protect yourself and the estate.

The estate lawyers at Arbesman Hamilton LLP and its predecessors have been representing clients in estate litigation, including representing executors during will challenges, for over 60 years. We advise executors on their roles and responsibilities, defend them in court, and work hard to ensure that a testator’s wishes are properly carried out.

Are you an executor of a will that has been challenged?

Anyone with a financial interest in an estate can contest or challenge a will. Claims can be made on three grounds:

  1. Formality;
  2. Mental/Testamentary Capacity;
  3. Undue influence.

Executors facing a will challenge should be aware that this type of legal action can be long and expensive. The best way to deal with a will dispute is to have an experienced estate litigation lawyer on your side who can safeguard your interests, manage your legal and financial risk, and ensure the estate is protected.
