Question

Our father has dementia and is susceptible to undue influence. He signed a will under what we believe are suspicious circumstances. The will disinherits my brother and me and leaves all assets to our sister. What, if anything, can my brother and I do under Colorado law to correct what we believe is an unjust situation?

Answer

Depending upon the facts – what happened and how it happened – Colorado law may allow the situation to be corrected so that your father’s assets pass as he intends or as he intended. Although every contested will is different, and success can’t be guaranteed, our firm has recovered over $4.5 million this year for our clients in similar circumstances. Time is a factor, and these claims should be pursued as expeditiously as possible.
