We have the state-specific knowledge to be able to assist you with estate litigation matters in New South Wales, Victoria, and Queensland districts.

We will keep you updated throughout the entire process and will explain everything to you in a simple and clear way.

We also have extensive experience in resolving disputes that arise when people put their trust in the NSW Trustee and Guardian.

Our Sydney estate litigation services include:

Contesting a Will

If you have been left out of someone’s Will, or inadequately provided for, we can help you get what you are entitled to. Our Sydney lawyers can advise you on your prospects of success and will walk you through the process to take legal action.

Defending a Will

At Attwood Marshall Lawyers, our team are compelled to protect the wishes of the deceased. If a Family Provision Claim is made, we can help you defend and uphold the integrity of the Will so that you can fulfil the testamentary intentions of the deceased. We understand that Family Provision Claims can be stressful and contentious. It is our intent to support you every step of the way and to help you resolve the matter as quickly as possible.

Challenging a Will

The most common reasons for challenging a Will include if the Will-maker lacked testamentary capacity, if the Will was executed under suspicious circumstances or undue influence, or if the Will was not signed or witnessed correctly. We can assist you with bringing a challenge against a Will in court if you are concerned about the validity of the Will.

Executor & Beneficiary Disputes

Our Sydney lawyers can assist beneficiaries, executors, and administrators when disputes arise over Wills and estates. We will help you understand your rights, duties, and obligations.

NSW Trustee & Guardian Disputes

Have you been involved in a dispute with the NSW Trustee & Guardian? Our estate litigation lawyers can help you remove the Trustee and seek compensation for the mismanagement of your financial affairs.

Statutory Wills

A Statutory Will can provide assurance to minors or those who lack capacity and their families, ensuring that the Will reflects their testamentary intentions. We can assist you with applying for a Statutory Will.
