Probate Litigation

Sacramento Probate Litigator - (916) 343-8488

Probate can be a complicated process, and many people do not fully understand the legal processes involved in probate until they are in the midst of it. At Yonano Law Offices, P.C., we are proud to have over 28 years of experience helping our clients obtain favorable resolutions to their probate concerns. We are dedicated to ensuring that our clients' rights are protected and that each individual obtains the best possible resolution to his or her case.

If you have concerns regarding the legitimacy of a will or if you feel that an administrator has not acted in the beneficiary's best interests, it is important that you contact Yonano Law Offices. Numerous different problems are recognized as grounds for contesting a will during or prior to probate.

If you find yourself facing any of the following concerns, contact our office as soon as possible:

  • A belief that the creator of the will was coerced into creating a will under false pretenses or by someone who was trying to take control of his or her assets and finances
  • A belief that the creator of the will did not have stable mental capacity at the time the will was created and did not understand the terms and conditions of the will
  • Suspicion or evidence that a mistake occurred in executing the will's terms and conditions or distribution of assets under California probate laws

Additionally, if there was a breach in fiduciary duties, beneficiary complaints, or any portion of a will was determined to have been wrong, you should speak with Yonano Law Offices. Our firm also can defend a personal representative who has been accused of breach of duty.

Grounds to Contest a Will in California

The state of California provides four legal grounds for challenging a will:

  1. The will was not signed properly
  2. The testator lacked the mental capacity to make a decision
  3. There is suspected undue influence or coercion in the execution of the will
  4. The will was procured through fraud

If you have questions or concerns regarding the validity of any legal matter, it is always important that you speak with an attorney. At our office, we are proud to assist clients with obtaining favorable resolutions to their litigation matters and we may be able to help you, too.

Our founding attorney, Nick Yonano, has successfully litigated numerous cases for clients in Northern California. If you are looking to reduce the stress and complications that you are facing, contact Yonano Law Offices to consult an attorney in Sacramento today.
