How can our Inheritance Lawyers help you?

Disputing a Will

Inheritance dispute cases can be a daunting experience for all of those involved, often raising difficult questions and bringing any prior conflicts to the forefront. If you feel you’ve been inadequately provided for in a will or wrongly excluded from it, it is important to act promptly and determine the strength of your case. With extensive experience in inheritance dispute cases, our inheritance lawyers can assess the chances of you winning in court, and provide expert advice regarding whether it would be wise to proceed. If, after this you decide to pursue your case, our specialist team at Hentys can help you every step of the way and assist you in achieving the settlement outcome you deserve.

Typically, you will have six months from grant of probate or letters of administration to make an application. If you are considering making a claim the time to act is now, get in contact with our expert team today. We can help you through the entire process, taking your personal wishes into account and helping you to reach a fair outcome.

Defending a Will

Our industry professionals can also act for the executor, as we are equipped with the knowledge and skills required to defend against a will that is being contested. We understand the importance of upholding the testators’ terms as outlined in their will, but can also provide you with expert advice regarding the merit of challenging parties’ case. At Hentys our experienced inheritance lawyers can help you negotiate and reach a fair settlement or, if required, will be able to defend the estate in court.
