Anderlini & McSweeney LLP is led by our two partners; attorneys who each have decades of legal practice in California. As a midsize law firm, our clients get the benefit of working directly with one of our experienced litigation attorneys throughout the duration of their case. P. Terry Anderlini and Brian J. McSweeney have received high ratings under the Martindale-Hubbell's peer review system,* and attorney Anderlini has also been selected for inclusion in Northern California Super Lawyers for several years.

Unlike larger law firms, where personal attention from a senior attorney is reserved for the most high-profile clients, all clients of Anderlini & McSweeney LLP have our assurance that they will work directly with one of our senior partners. Our decades of legal experience give us the resources to provide high-quality legal representation.

Challenging a Will via a Will Contest

There is an almost infinite variety in the circumstances that can lead to a major legal battle over the validity or terms of a will. In general, however, these are the questions that arise most frequently in will contests:

  • Was the testator mentally competent when the will was made?
  • Are the terms of the will skewed due to the undue influence of one of the beneficiaries?

If you are considering making a formal legal challenge to a will or a trust, it is critically important to choose legal counsel who understands the complexities of California's probate and estate laws. Anderlini & McSweeney LLP can give you that assistance.
