Settlement of Challenge to a Revocable Trust and Will

March 2013

The firm settled for $900,000.00 a case arising out of a contest to a will and challenges to a revocable trust that became irrevocable upon the death of the settlor. The settlement involved direction of substantial charitable contributions to charities favored by the firm’s client as part of the overall resolution. The firm’s client was a retired college professor, and the charities all provide scholarships for students demonstrating financial need, with preference to students who are residents of Colbert County.
