How successful are Will contests in Illinois?

While Wills can always be challenged, Will contests are largely unsuccessful.  It is common knowledge among Illinois attorneys experienced in Probate matters that 99% of Will contests fail.  This is especially true if the Will in question was prepared by a competent attorney.  Probate courts in Illinois are simply reluctant to overturn validly executed Wills.  Thus, a Will contest is only appropriate in situations where there is clear evidence to attack the Will.


Because of the complexity and low success rates in challenging Illinois Wills, the Law Office of Kevin Williams does not represent individuals seeking to challenge a Will in Illinois.  If you are in need of a Will contest attorney, contact your local bar association for a trusted referral.
