Empowering You. Creating Choices. Successful Outcomes.

Situations often arise where someone brings a claim for better provision from a deceased person’s estate.

In other words, they contest the will. Such claims are also commonly referred to as “Part IV claims” or “Testator Family Maintenance claims”.

You may wish to contest a Will for any number of reasons including that you believe the Will is invalid or that the deceased had an obligation to provide for you and failed to adequately do so.

We have experience in all facets of these types of claims. We act for the person contesting the will, for the executor of the estate or for the people who would have received the benefit of the estate if it weren’t for the claim (beneficiaries or potential beneficiaries).

If you are in a situation where a will is being or should be contested, we can assist you, advise you and fight to achieve for you the best possible result.
