Attwood Marshall Lawyers have a dedicated Brisbane team that practice exclusively in this area of law. Our team is driven to help people resolve these contentious issues effectively so that you can move on from the matter.

Disputes over Wills can be very sensitive and emotionally charged issues that arise when a loved one dies.

  • Making a Family Provision Application
  • Defending a dispute
  • Challenging the validity of a Will
  • Removing the Public Trustee of Queensland or resolving other disputes that may arise when dealing with these types of organisations.

Our Brisbane estate litigation services include:

Contesting Wills

We want to help you get what you are entitled to if you have been unfairly left out of a Will, or you have not been left adequate provision. We can help you understand your legal rights and what your prospects of success may be to make a Family Provision Claim.

Defending Wills

Our dedicated Brisbane lawyers are impelled to protect the wishes of the deceased. We can help you uphold the integrity of the Will and fulfil the deceased’s testamentary intentions. Family Provision Claims can be stressful for everyone involved; however, it is our intent to support you every step of the way.

Challenging Wills

If you are concerned about the validity of a Will because you believe it was executed under suspicious circumstances or undue influence, or you do not believe the Will-maker had the testamentary capacity required at the time they made the document, we can help you challenge the Will in court.

Executor & Beneficiary Disputes

Attwood Marshall Lawyers have extensive experience in resolving disputes that can arise between Executors and beneficiaries. By providing expert advice and dispute resolution strategies, our Brisbane lawyers can help you understand your rights, duties, and obligations.

Public Trustee & Guardian Disputes

We can help you resolve disputes or seek compensation if you have had problems dealing with the Public Trustee of Queensland.

Statutory Wills

If you need to make an application for a Statutory Will in order to provide assurance to a minor or someone who lacks capacity, we can help.
