At Sills & Betteridge Solicitors we have the expertise to help if you are in the unfortunate position where you, or someone else, is contesting the validity of the Will of a loved one. This may be because you have grave concerns regarding the circumstances in which Will was made; you find that you have been left without reasonable financial provision as a dependant of someone who has died; you are administering the estate over which someone else is making a claim; or you are the beneficiary of an estate over which someone else is making a claim.
We have the experience and expertise to assist you with:
- claims where you believe a Will is not valid, or you have doubts as to whether a Will is valid;
- claims where you are are a dependant of the person who has died and you have not received reasonable financial provision;
- defending a claim where you are the beneficiary of an estate which is subject to a claim;
- your role as an administrator of an estate which is subject to a claim; and
- Probate disputes involving the removal of someone who is administering an estate and who has failed to act, or has acted wrongly.
We understand that claims against an estate can be stressful and sometimes expensive. We will therefore advise you on the cost implications and likelihood of success in any proposed or actual litigation from the outset. This means that you will have a full understanding of the implications before deciding how you wish to proceed.
Our dedicated team headed by Karen Bower-Brown, a member of ACTAPS (the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists) always aim to deal with all disputes in an understanding and professional way, with a view to resolving matters, including court proceedings if necessary, as quickly as possible.
Thank you so much for today. You did an amazing job and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to represent me! I’m so happy that it went that way and that I’ve been granted the non molestation order. I can now relax a little bit and actually live my life without having the fear of my ex partner in the back of my mind. Thank you so much once again, I’ll always be grateful for you and your team at Sills & Betteridge. You all did an excellent job and handled my situation perfectly.
Thank you for the professional way that my divorce was handled; a very painful time which was eased by the ‘fuss-free’ approach from yourself and Leanne. Will certainly recommend.
I would personally not use any other solicitor – Andrew Durkan has been very professional and understanding in the completion of my will. Highly Recommended.
I am very happy. Thank you for all your help. I hope to be alright for the future now. Kind regards
I wanted to email to highlight how helpful and efficient Matthew Daurge has been during the purchase and sale of our property. This is this first time Mathew has acted on our behalf and he really has made the process run very smoothly and quickly. Because of this we will definitely be asking him to act on our behalf with our future projects.
Mathew presents as being extremely efficient and his communication skills have been excellent. He has always done what he has said he is going to do without us having to keep following this up. Mathew was always very good at keeping us updated and is very approachable. I have work with many solicitors both on a professional level and personal and I am yet to come across a solicitor that has been as helpful as Mathew.
Mathew is a credit to your company. So I just wanted to highlight his good practice and hope you will pass on this positive feedback as it is much deserved.
We remain most grateful for all your help and support in bringing this matter to a satisfactory conclusion. No one could have done more, and we think the outcome is not only a credit to your skills in this area of law, but also to the care and attention that you have taken on our behalf
