Helping you at a most difficult time
The death of a loved one is probably the worst events that any of us will suffer in life. It is hard to describe how traumatic the experience can become if the heartache is followed by a dispute relating to the estate. There may be no will, leading to arguments over who should receive what. Even if there is a will, a relative may wish to challenge it.
If you find yourself in this situation then our specialist Team can help you in a sympathetic way. We will give clear advice designed to reach a solution as quickly as possible. We can also help to take away money fears, by offering help with funding through No Win No Fee arrangements in certain circumstances.
We can also help with:
- Inheritance Act claims - where a will doesn't provide for you
- Challenging the validity of the will - there may be capacity issues or even fraud
- Contested Court or Protection proceedings
- Disputes with Executors - even having them removed
- Negligent drafting of a will - challenging the solicitors who drafted the will

If you wish to bring a claim for maintenance under the Inheritance Act you must so this within 6 months of the Grant of Probate. A challenge to the estate must be started within 1 year of the death.
