Non-Profit Representation of Undue Influence by Caretaker

In 2009, Stoll Berne attorneys Gary Berne and Jen Wagner received a favorable judgment in a will contest trial. Berne and Wagner represented a non-profit on claims alleging that a caretaker exercised undue influence in order to improperly obtain a vulnerable person’s estate. The court ruled that the will in favor of the caretaker was invalid, which shifted a significant portion of the estate to the non-profit.
