Following the probate of a will, the executor is provided with a tremendous amount of power. Sometimes, the executor may abuse this power by hiding assets or not acting according to the will of the deceased. In other cases, the decedent may have left confusing instructions, or have left multiple wills. Should you feel there is something wrong with the administration of an estate or will, there is a short window of time to contest it, and it is critical to have proper legal representation.
