Is a Will Contest at the Core of the Dispute?

When an estate is going through probate, disputes may arise over the validity of the will or over its interpretation if the decedent’s intentions are ambiguous. Family members may claim the individual was under undue influence or duress at the time the will was signed or incompetent at the time decisions were made. Fraud allegations might also serve to invalidate an estate plan. Attorney G. Cleveland Payne III can uphold your argument for or against the validity of the will throughout probate proceedings.

Our firm strives to prove the actual intent of the decedent, providing strong advocacy for your position throughout the process. There are time limits that exist for bringing forward a will contest. We can work swiftly within these time constraints toward a favorable resolution on your behalf.

Mr. Payne has done a great job helping us through the years with wills and other legal matters. He's our go to go guy and I would definitely recommend him for sound advice.


My two siblings and I picked Cleve to assist us with our late Mother's affairs. Although her papers were in order, we still needed an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to guide us through any mine field. I really don't know what we would of done without Cleve and Pam's assistance.


I worked with Cleve and Pam to prepare a will and other legal documents for me. The entire process was very efficient, and they were very helpful in answering all of the questions I had. I highly recommend Cleve for your legal needs.
