PM Law specialises in resolving complex probate disputes. Our experienced legal team in Sheffield provides expert guidance on contested wills, undue influence claims, and inheritance disputes. We offer personalised and strategic solutions to address the unique circumstances of each case.
Contested wills can result from concerns about the will's validity, allegations of undue influence, disputes over the interpretation of the will, or questions about the mental capacity of the deceased at the time of making the will.
If you suspect that there are issues with the probate process or have concerns about the distribution of an estate, it's advisable to consult with our wills and probate team. We can assess the details of your case and provide guidance on the viability of a contentious probate claim.
Undue influence occurs when someone exerts pressure on the deceased person to influence the creation or modification of their will. If there are suspicions of undue influence, it can lead to a contentious probate case. Our legal team is experienced in handling such claims and can provide assistance in proving or defending against them.
The duration of a contentious probate case varies depending on the complexity of the issues involved and whether an amicable resolution is possible. PM Law is committed to resolving cases efficiently, but timelines can be influenced by factors such as court schedules and the willingness of parties to negotiate.
While we always strive for amicable resolutions, litigation may be necessary in certain contentious probate cases. Our legal team is prepared to litigate aggressively to protect your interests and secure a favourable outcome.
