There are many reasons for an estate to be involved in litigation. You may not be able to locate all of the assets that are supposed to be a part of the estate. The Will itself may be confusing as to the true intentions of the deceased, or perhaps you suspect that the Will was prepared under suspicious circumstances. You may believe that, because of illness or dementia, the deceased was incompetent when the Will was drafted or changed. You may feel you are entitled to a part of an estate but were left out of the Will, or that you deserve a larger share than was left to you. Or you may be the beneficiary of a trust where you believe the trustee has illegally withdrawn the trust assets.
