Contesting a will, trust or estate dispute is becoming increasingly common as family networks become more complex. This is a particularly sensitive area of law, however, so it is important you have the right support to guide you through what can be a difficult process. Such disputes may not be pleasant, but they are necessary to ensure assets are distributed as intended.

 

Types of dispute

There are many reasons why a will may be disputed, such as someone claiming that the deceased should have made additional provision for them, the deceased did not have the appropriate mental capacity when they made the will, or someone coerced the deceased into making the will.

Likewise, a person may not be happy with how an estate is being administered, difficulties may be encountered with a trustee, or the misappropriation of funds can cause friction.

Excellent, professional and caring. Michaela and her colleagues made the whole process very easy.

Ms A

I have been using McHale and Co for both the sake of my property and the purchase of my new home. Joy handled my sale and was extremely professional, helpful and persevered when dealing with my buyers solicitors who were less than professional to deal with.
Phillippa was equally professional and extremely knowledgeable on purchasing new build properties due to her years of experience in this specialist area. She was supportive and gave me confidence that I was getting a first class service. Would use them again and recommend to my friends and family.

Ms. S

…in the midst of the most stressful situations, I have never felt the need to ‘nudge’ or urge action, I have always been confident in the reliability and consistency in the service received, especially from Liz Connolly.
