It is possible, in certain circumstances, to challenge the validity of a Will of someone who has died. Wills are not necessarily set in stone. It is usually difficult to overturn a Will but we can advise you on whether there may be grounds for doing so.
You may experience problems in trying to discover what really happened but we can carry out a thorough investigation, on your behalf, into the circumstances in which the Will was made. This may include obtaining a statement from the Solicitor who prepared the Will, taking statements from the individuals who witnessed the Will, and from family and friends of the deceased. We can even obtain the deceased’s medical records, where appropriate. When our investigations are complete, you can trust us to discuss the options with you and to advise on the best way forward.
We don't just sell time; we sell experience, expertise, know-how and results, and are able to offer a wide range of pricing options which may include Fixed Fees and Service Level Guarantees.
