Will Contests

Taking legal action to contest a will or trust is an uncommon, but occasionally necessary and warranted, step. If you suspect that a loved one's will is not true to what he or she intended, there are ways that we may be able to correct the situation.  The Jones Firm has also successfully defended against will contest suits and is here to assist you if you believe that the will or trust of your loved one is being improperly challenged.

 

The Jones Firm represented the niece of the famous artist in contesting Georgia O’Keeffe’s will on various grounds.  The case was filed in Santa Fe and The Jones Firm was successful in getting approximately $60-$70 million of the artist’s artwork, the bulk of her estate, transferred to non-profit museums and foundations rather than an individual as provided in the will.
