When appointed as an executor to an individual’s estate it can be a daunting proposition. Winding up the lifelong financial affairs of a loved one often requires generous amounts of time and patience.

Occasionally an executor or fiduciary of an estate for one reason or another does not have clue of how to locate the assets of the decedent’s estate. When faced with this challenge, most fiduciary’s strategy is to examine the decedent’s tax return and monitor the mail box for statements from financial institutions or pension administrators.

Investigations for Undue Influence 

Undue influence is classified as a person’s free will being overtaken by another individual. This can be a significant issue when it comes to trusts, deeds, and wills for those who are debilitated or elderly. People with serious health problems that affect their decision making are often targets for people who want access to their assets. The results of being taken advantage of in this manner can be devastating for individuals and families.

When a person’s free will is involuntarily manipulated, this is considered a psychological phenomenon. This is why it is important to have a clear understanding of the mental processes that are involved in undue influence, and the attorneys we work with are quite experienced in this area. Lawyers may have to rely solely on circumstantial evidence to present a valid case and will have to give explicit details to prove that undue influence has occurred.

Beneficiary Investigation


Dealing with the death of a loved one is never easy. If you are named as a beneficiary in a will, one of your loved one’s last wishes was to leave something behind to you and your family. During the probate process, a beneficiary often has questions regarding what their loved ones financial status was at the time of their passing and what their financial status was before the time of their passing. Finding answers to these questions can be difficult, especially if the executor or administrator of the estate is not a good communicator or, for one reason or another, you don’t trust the executor or administrator.

Questions Beneficiaries Usually Ask Are:

Does the executor or trustee know where all of the accounts and assets located?

Shouldn’t there be more in that bank or brokerage account?

Can I trust the executor to perform their job efficiently?

Didn’t the decedent own property in another state?

Does the executor have my interests at heart?

If you are a beneficiary and have had similar questions or if you suspect that an executor or trustee is not performing their duties in a trustworthy or efficient manner, you have the right to have them removed. In order for you to motion the court to have an executor removed you need evidence.
