It is not uncommon for someone to feel that a will (or trust) is invalid or unfair or that the estate has been depleted before or after the death of a loved one.
We have a great deal of experience in handling contentious trusts and probate disputes. Whilst we always seek swift, low budget and amicable solution, there are times wherein litigation proves inevitable. It can be an emotionally charged and demanding process. We strive to deal with these cases as sensitively as possible albeit that there are circumstances wherein a robust approach is necessary.
