Will Contests & Trust Disputes

There are a variety of considerations in deciding to contest a will in court. Lawyers at Falke & Dunphy, LLC, handle will contests, disputes and trust disputes over suspicions of:

  • Mental capacity: To make a valid will, a person must be able to meet certain legal requirements concerning his or her mental state and clarity of thought.
  • Forceful changes to the will under duress.

If you believe you have suffered a violation of your civil rights, the best place to start is to speak with an experienced civil rights attorney.

A civil rights attorney can evaluate all aspects of your case and explain available options.

Qui Tam & Whistleblower Claims

The False Claims Act, 31 U.S.C. Section 3729 et. seq., allows private persons to bring a qui tam action against another who has defrauded the federal government by knowingly presenting a false claim for payment. A false claim may involve a false record, receipt, statement or other representations made to the government. In such actions, qui tam plaintiffs file suit on behalf of themselves and the United States, and, if successful, will be entitled to share in any recovery with the federal government. Qui tam actions may be brought by employees, former employees, competitors, subcontractors, state and local governments, current and former federal employees, public interest groups, corporations, and other private organizations.
