- Dealing with challenges to the spousal elective share

Oftentimes, a properly drafted estate plan can help ensure the lawful administration of one’s estate. Other times, however, the lawful administration of a loved one’s estate may be disrupted by the ill-conceived efforts of a beneficiary, personal representative, trustee or other individual seeking to advance her own goals or self-interest. At Jay B. Watson, P.A., our goal is to resolve probate and trust disputes in a manner consistent with the intent of the deceased loved one and in a manner that best protects our client’s interests and assets while preserving family relationships.
