Forensic tests helped discover lost will

Wed 29th Jul 2015

Coodes’ Darren Higginson acted for Mrs J whose partner died and no will could be found. We arranged for forensic tests to be carried out on Mr J’s computer and discovered a will he had prepared himself shortly before he died. Witnesses confirmed that the will had been signed in their presence. We tracked down a long-lost uncle and he and another relative agreed that the will should be declared valid. Mrs J received her partner’s substantial Estate.
