Beneficiary Dispute Settled in a Murder-Suicide Case

Our clients called us for help after their claims had been denied by a major insurer in a beneficiary contest. Our life insurance attorneys were able to resolve this very complex matter involving murder, suicide, estate and life insurance disputes.

Five parties filed competing claims for the total amount of the life insurance benefits of the decedent who committed suicide.  The tragic case involved an intricate interplay of estate laws, criminal laws, evidence laws, and life insurance contractual provisions. Our law firm reached a settlement whereby our clients received a fair amount of life insurance proceeds. Our lawyers professionally navigated this delicate family dispute during the most emotional time of our clients’ lives and reached the desired result within a month of commencing the work.
