Contesting a Will

Will disputes by their very nature arise at a time of great stress and vulnerability for all involved.

Each dispute is unique and our approach combines sensitivity and confidentiality with professionalism and objective advice. Where possible, we seek to achieve resolution out of court. Trial, while sometimes inevitable, is expensive, risky, and puts family matters in the public spotlight.

Areas where we can help include:

  • Lack of testamentary capacity
  • Lack of knowledge and approval
  • Undue influence
  • Fraudulent/forged wills
  • Improperly executed wills
  • Lost or destroyed wills
  • Negligently prepared wills
  • Interpretation, construction and rectification of wills
  • Proprietary estoppel and constructive trust claims
