Competency & Legal Capacity Attorneys

Helping Families in Taunton & All of Massachusetts

The estate planning and probate law attorneys at Percy Law Group, PC, routinely represent individuals involved in disputes regarding competency and legal capacity. Sometimes we represent individuals challenging the legal capacity and competency of a person signing a document. We also represent many clients who seek to uphold the validity of duly executed documents. Every examination of competency and legal capacity focuses on the state of mind of the person signing the document in question at the time he or she signed it. This examination requires the experience, hard work and dogged determination of the estate planning and probate litigation team at Percy Law Group, PC Call our firm today to arrange an initial consultation regarding your particular probate litigation needs.

Using Competency and Legal Capacity to Your Advantage

When you hire our team you will see us thoroughly examine the multitude of facts and circumstances surrounding the document signing event. Proper execution of a legal instrument requires that the person signing have sufficient mental capacity to understand the implications of the document at the time they signed it. Having that capacity the day or hours before and/or the day or hours after is irrelevant. Our investigations can involve the use of witnesses present at the time, an analysis of drug use and interaction, illnesses, medical expert opinion and testimony, and life circumstance issues such as sleep quality the day or days before, etc. Capacity and competency are clearly moving targets, but so is the type of document at issue. Therefore, a greater understanding is required for some legal activities than for others. For instance, the capacity required for entering into a contract is higher than that required to execute a will.
