Contentious Probate and Will Disputes

We appreciate that legal fees are often a barrier to seeking compensation and so where possible we will offer a “no win, no fee” arrangement, and will always be entirely transparent on the likely cost of the case.

We understand the emotional nature of these disputes, and we handle your case with sensitivity and care.

Slater Heelis’ contentious probate solicitors will help settle disputes and provide valuable legal advice during the difficult time of the death of a loved one.

A number of highly sensitive issues can arise on the death of a family member, and it is important to have an experienced legal team at hand to act in your best interest while offering sensible advice in the midst of an emotional dispute.

How we can help

Our team of experts at Slater Heelis maintain a proactive and professional approach at all times in order to best support our clients. We are focused on providing the highest level of legal service and where possible, resolving disputes by means of negotiation or mediation so as to avoid the costs of court proceedings.

However, where appropriate we will stand firm and begin court proceedings where necessary. In the case of disputes we advise that specialist advice is obtained as swiftly as possible in order to avoid a prolonged and painful process.

The relationships between those involved may require skillful and sensitive management in order to reach the preferred outcome for all parties involved. Our solicitors are specialists in all types of contentious probate, and regularly act for clients to resolve the following circumstances:

  • Challenging the validity or interpretation of a Will or Trust document on the basis of undue influence, fraud, lack of mental capacity or proprietary estoppel
  • Disputes between Executors or Trustees and replacing Executors or Trustees
  • Claims for financial provision under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependents) Act
  • Claims against professional advisors, particularly Solicitors in drafting Wills or Trust Deeds

Help is at hand with Slater Heelis

At Slater Heelis we recognise that legal fees prevent many people turning to a solicitor when disputing a will. We remain completely transparent with our clients throughout the process, and where possible we will offer a “no win, no fee” arrangement to lessen the financial strain.
