Wills + Inheritance disputes
Contested Probate? If you’ve had a inheritance dispute, we can help you
Sometimes a Will excludes a family member who is a dependant or someone who should have been provided for. If this affects you, we will assist in addressing the claim and reaching a solution for your benefit either through negotiation or court process.
These family disputes can be acrimonious. We believe in Law, Fair + Square. We will be there by your side. We will find a solution. We’re great listeners and really understand your situation. We make the complex simple.
