Defending Your Interests In Will Contests And TEDRA Actions
A will contest in Washington is normally brought under our state’s TEDRA statutes — the Trust and Estate Dispute Resolution Act. The probate process can pit family members against one another and leave ownership of inherited assets and property uncertain.
If you are a surviving relative who is embroiled in a will dispute and fearful that your interests are being overlooked during the estate’s administration, our dedicated probate team and lawyer can help.
Common Types Of Will Challenges
Our experienced attorney at Parr Price Law, PS, can aggressively represent the interests of heirs who feel something is not quite right with the probate administration process or the will itself.
We represent clients challenging the will’s validity due to:
- Undue influence of a caregiver, fiduciary or family member
- Questions of incompetency
- Suspicious last-minute changes to a will
- Vague references in the text of the will that complicate its interpretation
In addition to will contest matters, we are also qualified to assist beneficiaries who believe that the personal representative or fiduciary is engaged in misconduct, violating their fiduciary duty.
Our attorney has more than 30 years of experience working with estate plans and probate administration of estate and trusts. We use familiarity with the relevant statutes, including Washington’s Vulnerable Adults Protection Act and the provisions of TEDRA, to examine the cause or causes of this kind of dispute. Our lawyer has the skills to effectively resolve complex disputes in and out of court.
We Can Help Out-Of-State Relatives

We can also provide representation for distant, remote potential heirs, such as a second or third cousin, who live outside of Washington and are concerned that there may be irregularities with the administration of the estate or the will itself.
