Will Disputes & Contentious Probate

Wills are very important. The financial security of you and your family can depend on the meaning of a few words.

You might feel you have been unfairly left out of a will. You might also believe that the person who made the will was no longer in a fit mental state to make a will or that they were either under a lot of pressure or for some other reason not really free to make up their own mind about what the will should say.

Sometimes a will can stand as a valid legal document but the person who made it has not been fair in carrying out their obligations to those close to them. Sometimes the law which applies where there is no will means that, for example, some people are left with nothing at all.

On the other hand, you may have been appointed as an executor of a will and the validity of it or the provision which it makes has been challenged.

These are all situations where we can help in putting matters right for people who have not been left their proper entitlement.
