Macon Probate Litigation Attorney

Probate litigation often arises in situations involving a fight among a person's heirs. Each heir may state that the others are unqualified to serve as executors, or there may be a question as to the validity of the will. Regardless of the circumstances, Adams, Hemingway & Wilson, L.L.P., is able to help. We have served clients in middle Georgia since 1956, including numerous cases involving probate litigation.

Knowledge Of All Aspects Of Probate Litigation

Our Macon probate litigation attorneys represent both those who wish to contest wills and estate administrations as well as those who are tasked with defending against these contests, and analyze issues such as:

  • Competence of the testator: If a person is not competent, such as in situations involving dementia or other degenerative diseases, he or she may not be able to create a valid will.
  • Undue influence: When family members or acquaintances exert too much influence over a testator, any will that he or she forms may be invalid.
  • Will formation requirements: Issues such as having required signatures and the form of the will can derail what would otherwise be a valid estate plan.

Our years of probate experience is augmented by the representation that we provide to county administrators in probate litigation cases. In situations where there is a dispute about the validity of a will or the administration of an estate, the county administrator becomes the executor of the estate until the litigation is resolved. We routinely represent county administrators in their role as executors, so we have an in-depth understanding of all possible sides of probate disputes. We use this knowledge to help our clients defend or contest the administration of an estate.
