Contesting Wills

If you have been left out of a Will or feel that you have not been adequately provided for in someone’s Will, we can help you get what you are entitled to.

Our team will advise you of your prospects of success and what is involved when taking legal action to contest a Will.

Defending Wills

Defending a Will in the event that a family provision claim is made can be complicated and stressful without trusted legal advice. At Attwood Marshall Lawyers, we feel a deep sense of responsibility to protect the wishes of the deceased and can help you ensure the deceased’s Will or testamentary intentions are fulfilled.

Challenging Wills

If you are concerned about the validity of a Will, our Estate Litigation team can assist you in bringing a challenge against the Will in Court. The most common reasons for challenging a Will include lack of testamentary capacity, suspicious circumstances, undue influence, or if the Will was not signed or witnessed properly, just to name a few.
