At Coodes our disputes team has extensive legal expertise in the often complex law surrounding will and inheritance disputes, often referred to as contentious probate disputes. Several members of our team are recognised specialist practitioners in this area. Indeed, The Legal 500 says “Coodes brings ‘excellent industry knowledge’ to Inheritance Act claimants and executors, and those seeking to challenge the validity of wills.”
Many people still die without making a will meaning their estate is divided up according to certain rules which may not produce fair results for families. It is also becoming common for the validity of wills to be contested for a variety of reasons including lack of capacity or understanding due to dementia and similar conditions.
Even where there is a will which is valid, its contents may produce unfair outcomes particularly where there is a second or step family involved who feel left out.
With our specialist knowledge we can assist and advise you in this difficult and complex area and work together with you towards a successful outcome so do not hesitate to contact us for advice by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call your local office today.
