Disputed Wills/Estates

When families and other interested parties disagree over the contents of a Will, administration of an estate or any other issues related to inheritance, things can quickly become highly acrimonious if not handled correctly.

These disputes often involve highly emotive issues that go beyond the assets included in an estate, so resolving these conflicts typically relies on empathy and skilled negotiation as much as a strict interpretation of the legal rights and wrongs of the situation.
