Contentious Probate & Will Dispute Solicitors In Essex

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 solicitors 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.

Some examples of probate claims that we regularly deal with include:

  • Contesting a will
  • Contesting an estate where there is no will (Intestate)
  • Inheritance Act Claims
  • Removal of Executors
  • Removal of Caveats
  • Trust and proprietary estoppel claims

I would like to thank you for the way in which you dealt with this matter all the way through. Particularly I would express my thanks for your prompt replies to all enquiries that I raised and for keeping me so well informed of the progress of the case.

Natasha Kelt, Litigation

I must say her handling of the transaction was first rate and very professional. Always available and she was never afraid to pick up the phone and share information when it was better to communicate that way rather than just email, a blessing in this day and age. Though both parties were keen for a quick exchange she never allowed that pressure to mean she cut any corners with her enquiries and was always working in my best interests.

I will be more than happy to work with her again in the future and will certainly recommend her to friends and associates who require similar services.

Amber Day, Property

We would like to thank you and your team so much for all the help and advice we received and for acting in a courteous and professional manner at all times. Thank you also Lee for patiently addressing all the issues we raised and for explaining everything to us so clearly, sometimes repeatedly, until you were satisfied we fully understood the more complex issues with our Wills; you personally, were highly recommended to us by one of your grateful clients. Likewise, we too would not hesitate to highly recommend you to anybody planning to make a Will.
