Specialist contentious probate lawyers

From wishing to remove an executor to disagreements between beneficiaries, contentious probate encompasses any dispute that arises regarding the administration of an individual’s estate after their death.

As long as you are a family member or are mentioned in the Will or previous Will, and there is legal reason to do so, you can challenge a Will. Before you do anything, contact an experienced probate solicitor to discover if your case is worth pursuing as soon as possible, preferably before probate is granted.

At Trethowans, our contentious probate lawyers provide reliable and trusted legal advice specific to your case and will be there to guide and support you throughout the entire process. To learn more about our services, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today.
