SENSITIVE PROBATE ADVICE FOR YOU OR YOUR FAMILY
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.
