Developing Compelling Claims to Secure Your Best Interests

Early in the legal process, Hoyle Law reviews medical records and consults doctors to understand the extent dementia, Alzheimer's or another disease has had on an individual's mental capacity. The firm also seeks to understand when the illness progressed.

Hoyle Law pieces together as much information as possible based on when the will or estate plan was modified. For example, if your loved one was treated for Alzheimer's or dementia when the will was changed, the firm will develop a claim of undue influence based on the timeline of events. Hoyle Law will take its claim one step further by illustrating the extent of a confidential relationship. The law firm incorporates the right medical facts and witness testimony to prove a power of attorney or another individual took advantage of your loved one.

The legal team also offers a substantial background representing clients wrongfully accused of coercion or manipulation. Individuals working with the firm are skilled investigators prepared to show seniors were of sound mind when they changed their will or estate plan. For example, if the changes happened in the early stages of a progressive disease, the firm will demonstrate that the seniors had the ability to fully understand the terms of the estate plan. Hoyle Law devotes substantial resources to preserve the original intentions or a will or estate plan.
