Disinherited from father’s will
Alan represented the son of a 75-year-old man who changed his will three weeks before his death, to leave everything to his longtime companion who he had not married. At the time the father amended his will, he was in the advanced stage of Alzheimer’s Disease. Alan filed a challenge to the will on the grounds of lack of capacity, and secured an opinion from one of the Boston area’s top geriatric neurologists that the father could not possibly have understood the consequences of his action when he amended his will.
Result: The opinion was the catalyst for a settlement quite favorable to Alan’s client.
