Contentious Probate Solicitors

Wills, Trusts and Probate


Acting for executors, administrators and beneficiaries, Giles Wilson can offer practical, cost-effective advice and support in all contentious probate matters.

Contentious Probate refers to a situation where a will or the distribution of the deceased's estate is challenged or disputed. This can happen for any number of reasons, including cases where the estate is divided by intestacy rules or if you believe that the deceased was pressured into changing their will.

A personal loss can be twice as great if you believe there to be an issue surrounding the will or the distribution on the deceased's estate. At Giles Wilson, we have extensive experience dealing with claims surrounding sensitive family disputes of this nature and our ACTAPS-accredited solicitors can help you reach a settlement you are happy with. Our team can offer sensitive, practical and cost-effective advice and representation on your claim.

Contesting a Will

Contesting a Will may occur when one is unsigned, not witnessed or in cases of the deceased having insufficient mental capacity at the time of writing.
