What is Tortious Interference with a Testamentary Expectancy?
A common action in Florida estate and trust litigation is Tortious Interference with a Testamentary Expectancy. Now what that means in layman’s terms is that you expected to receive an inheritance from the trust or estate from your mother or father, brother or sister, aunt or uncle and whoever it may be.
However, some other person was able to convince in some form or fashion the testator, the now decedent, to change his or her will or trust so that you now get nothing. You, meaning the beneficiary.
There are various situations where this can occur. They often times overlap with Undue Influence. They overlap with Lack of Capacity. But it is a stand alone cause of action and one that is typically raised in this type of litigation.

Clients pay attorney fees after a case is completed and when it pays out.
Contingency fee means that the client pays legal fees when the lawyer and case brings in money from the legal actions taken. Reed immediately begins work on the case to pursue a legal action that will yield financial results. Clients meanwhile are not billed, have to write a check, or pay by credit card to get a case moving. Every case is reviewed and there is no guarantee that it will qualify or be accepted as a contingency fee case but you should find out through talking with Reed.
Contingency fee cases are available for business litigation, and for trust and estate litigation cases.
