Disputes involving wills often happen at times of distress and emotion due to the passing of a loved one, therefore creating further stress. The last thing you want is for your inheritance to end up in the wrong hands, which is why we are here to help. 

No matter the circumstances on the dispute of a will, our experienced team aim to resolve it by advising and guiding you on the best course of action. As we understand that each case is unique, we tailor our service to your specific needs. By seeking legal advice at an early stage, your dispute can potentially avoid litigation and expensive court fees.

We try to resolve will disputes as quickly as possible through negotiation and mediation in order to avoid court.


Our will dispute experts have the knowledge and experience to assist with:

  • Contesting a will if you think it was fraudulent, or at the time of creation, the deceased was not of mental capacity.

  • If you think you should benefit from an estate, we can guide you on how you can try and secure your inheritance.
  • We can advise executors on how to defend a will if a claim has been brought against it.

  • We can help you make a claim if there was no will in place.

  • If the will was not signed, and therefore not valid, we can advise on the best course of action.

  • If you have been promised something by the deceased, but have not been mentioned in the will, if evidence can be found, we can help get the beneficiaries of the estate to honour this.
