Will Disputes

We offer assistance, advice and representation for any dispute that relates to deceased estates. Whether you believe you have been unjustly left out of a will without sufficient provision, or you are an executor needing to uphold a will, we can help you.

Inheritance and estate disputes go beyond just disputing a will. Every will and every family situation is different, so our inheritance dispute lawyers can help you with any estate dispute you may have, whether it’s a family provision claim, superannuation death benefit dispute, equity claim (such as an estoppel claim), debt recovery claim, or perhaps a dispute between executors or as between beneficiaries and executors.

Our expert estate litigation lawyers will help you understand your legal rights and options, including all financial and non-financial advantages and disadvantages that may be possible. We love going to Court but we know that most people would prefer to avoid it. Accordingly, we can assist in resolving disputes outside of Court through our negotiation and advocacy skills and use of alternative dispute resolution methods (such as mediation).

We understand estate disputes can be an emotional and difficult process, so our team is here to make the journey as simple and stress-free as possible. We are there with you every step of the way, from explaining eligibility to make a claim and available grounds for contesting a will through to making a family provision claim in the ACT or NSW Supreme Court. We deliver advice in plain English so you can understand your legal position and your options. We use our experience to provide advice which is strategic and tailored to your particular circumstances.
