During the probate process, the original will of the decedent may be probated, and disputes among beneficiaries, heirs and fiduciaries may arise. Will contests and disputes during the probate process can cause rifts between parties and lead to legal fees, which may result in decreased estate assets.
Retaining the services of a proven probate and estate litigation law firm to settle disputes quickly and efficiently is critical. At Purcell, Krug & Haller, our attorneys in Hershey and Harrisburg have handled will contests throughout Pennsylvania for decades. We have served our local communities for over 60 years.

Other estate disputes/claims that may arise include:
- A claim of undue influence, lack of capacity, fraud, lack of witnesses or other mistakes when the will was drafted
- Forgery or mismatched copies of the will or other documents
- Breach of fiduciary duty by a personal representative, trustee, administrator or executor who may be accused of theft, fraud, self-dealing, delayed distributions or incompetence
- Guardianship or conservatorship designation challenges or accusations of improper conduct

We can handle all legal aspects of your case, protecting your rights and advocating for your best interests throughout the process until a fair and just result is achieved.
