Will Disputes (Contentious Probate)

JMW’s team of experienced advisors provides expert legal advice and practical support to parties involved in disputes concerning wills, trusts and inheritances. Whether you’re an executor or trustee, a beneficiary, or someone who feels they’ve not been provided for either within a will or in a trust, we can help you. Alternatively, if your loved one did not leave a will and as a result you have been excluded from their estate, then it may be possible to claim on their estate

The experts at JMW are here to make the probate process and matters of contentious probate as stress-free as possible. We are highly experienced in this area of law, providing a professional and understanding service during a difficult time.

If you are looking for assistance in a dispute concerning someone’s estate, get in touch with JMW’s dedicated team today. Call us on 0345 872 6666 or fill in our online enquiry form to request a callback.
