Representative Experience

  • Williams v. Brevard College, et. al. – This was a will caveat action on behalf of Brevard College and other beneficiaries of a 2010 will and trust of a wealthy lifelong resident of Transylvania County. The decedent had bequeathed more than $16 million to three nonprofits in the county, including our client, Brevard College, as residual beneficiary. The family of the decedent alleged that the will had been procured through undue influence by several of the beneficiaries, including representatives of the college. The family also alleged that the decedent’s mental capacity made him vulnerable to undue influence. The matter was tried over six weeks in the fall of 2014 with dozens of witnesses called by both sides. After approximately four hours of deliberation, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the college and the other beneficiaries. Thereafter, the matter was successfully defended and upheld before the North Carolina Court of Appeals and Supreme Court.
