"I just can't seem to express how much I really appreciate you. Your expertise and confident manner were very reassuring during this whole ordeal."

W.D., Sudbury, Massachusetts

A will contest is a probate court litigation matter in which the judge makes a decision regarding the validity of a will. The person challenging the validity of a will is often referred to as the "contestant." The person who is defending the will is called the "proponent." In a will contest, the contestant offers proof or evidence that the will is invalid. Such proof is usually intended to demonstrate any one or more of the following: the will was not properly signed; the person making the will (the "testator") lacked the requisite testamentary capacity; the testator was subjected to undue influence in the making of the will; the testator was fraudulently induced into signing the will; there was a mistake in the will. Mr. Reinert has been selected by the National Business Institute to give lectures on advanced probate issues including will contests.Mr. Reinert also has taught estate planning for the Massachusetts Bar Association as continuing legal education.
