When legal disputes arise between family and friends it can be very distressing, especially in circumstances where a person dies leaving a will that disinherits a close relative or where the financial provisions made are inadequate for those left behind. Disputes, such as will disputes, may arise in connection with the deceased’s estate, and contentious probate claims allow certain categories of person to dispute their entitlement.
Contentious probate matters include challenging the validity of a will on various grounds such as lack of mental capacity or undue influence by another. Our experienced lawyers can give you specialist advice tailored to your specific circumstances to achieve the best possible outcome. We aim to quickly identify the issues within a potential dispute in order to to keep costs to a minimum.
