Making a will is the best way to ensure that your money, property and personal belongings are distributed as you wish after your death. Sadly, disputes can arise when the deceased hasn’t made a will or they are left open to challenge by people who consider they should receive a benefit.
Disputes of this nature are unfortunately increasing, but you don’t have to act alone - Ramsdens are here to help. We have extensive experience in dealing with contentious probate and can help you every step of the way when contesting a will.
At Ramsdens, we are aware that contested probate cases are highly sensitive, especially when family members and loved ones are involved. We have acted on behalf of executors, administrators, beneficiaries and dependents, dealing with all aspects of contentious probate matters including:
We will advise thoroughly about the cost and the alternative to litigation - such as mediation - explaining the law in a clear and concise way to ensure you make the right choices in difficult decisions. In addition, we offer a range of funding options, including conditional fee agreements, and can advise on different products available to cover the cost of a claim.
We offer a professional and highly sympathetic approach, which combined with our efficient legal expertise, ensures that we can preserve family assets and minimise the stress and disruption these cases can cause. We work closely with the highly-experienced wills and probate team to ensure that problems are identified early, so our contentious probate solicitors can resolve them swiftly.
Our expert team are also members of the Association of Contentious Trusts and Probate Specialists.
