Contesting a Will

Have you been unfairly provided for in a Will?

The death of someone close is a testing time and contesting a Will can make things even more difficult. But if you believe you’re entitled to more from a deceased estate, we may be able to help.

Even though the law recognises a person's right to choose who will inherit his or her property, there are often very good reasons why a person should be contesting a Will.

Reasons for contesting a Will include: 

  • You’ve been left out of the Will
  • You've been unfairly provided for
  • The Will is not valid
  • The administrator was negligent
  • There is no Will

Whatever your reason for contesting a Will, we’ll listen, and we’ll work with you to help you get what you’re entitled to. 

By working with us:

  • We make sure the claim is viable
  • We check the size and scope of the estate
  • We negotiate your best outcome
  • We minimise the stress
