If you have been left out of a Will or you feel that a Will doesn’t fairly provide for you, Hentys Lawyers can help you get the information and answers you need.

You can rest assured that with the Hentys team your matter is in the best hands. With over 40 years experience, we have developed connections to specialist Will contest barristers; and having represented others with cases just like yours, we know how to guide and represent you throughout the entire process. The process of contesting a Will can seem daunting, and the first step is often the most difficult.

At Hentys we are committed to the interests of each of our individual clients and will apply our hard work, knowledge and experience to achieve the best possible outcome for you and your family.

We understand that even though the law recognises a person’s right to choose who will inherit his or her property, there are often very good reasons for a person to contest a Will.

Whatever your reasons may be, Hentys Lawyers will assist you in achieving a fair settlement. If you have any queries or require further information or advice, please don’t hesitate to get in touch; our experienced team is available and keen to assist you further.
