Understanding And Protecting Your Beneficiary Designation
When someone creates a will or trust, they can choose to name beneficiaries who will inherit their assets one day. However, decedents do not always clearly state their intent. Complicated issues involving finances and family situations may arise.

Your Inheritance Rights Matter
Beneficiary designation is significant – whether a beneficiary is a spouse, family member or a charitable organization. Our estate law attorneys understand the importance of protecting inheritance rights.
Executors, plan administrators and other parties who oversee an estate must fulfill their legal obligations. Failure to do so could both violate the decedent’s personal wishes and deprive beneficiaries of sentimental and economic value.
Some cases involve disputes regarding undue influence. If you believe that someone wrongfully coerced a decedent into changing beneficiary designation against their true wishes, we can help you seek a will contest.
