Florida Probate Litigation

Florida Probate Litigation lawsuits in Florida are ones involving estates, trusts, guardianships, and probate.  They may involve documents including Last Will & Testament, Living Trust, Durable Power of Attorney, etc.  These cases are filed on a daily basis throughout the State of Florida.  Many of these lawsuits include counts for undue influence, lack of capacity, and tortious interference but regardless of the title of the lawsuit, they all involve some level of exploitation of the elderly.  Exploitation can occur when a person who stands in a position of trust and confidence with a vulnerable adult knowingly, by deception or intimidation, obtains or uses a vulnerable adult’s funds, assets, or property with the intent to temporarily or permanently deprive a vulnerable adult of the use, benefit, or possession of the funds, assets, or property for the benefit of someone other than the vulnerable adult.  Ignoring this sophisticated definition, what we are really speaking of is some form of stealing.
