Contesting a will

Dealing with the death of a partner, parent, family member or friend is distressing and this stress can be increased if the will is challenged or a claim is made by others to share the estate.

Tony Illsley is a probate solicitor with considerable litigation experience and offers expertise in contentious probate matters, including contesting a will, claims for financial provision under the Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependants) Act 1975, claims concerning the valid execution of wills, and claims made on behalf of or against Executors or Administrators of the estate.

If you consider that you have been excluded from a will, or you have received far less that you expected, please contact our probate solicitors since you may have a claim against the estate. Remember that the costs of bringing a claim will normally be paid by the estate even if your claim is unsuccessful.

  • Contesting a will
