I have had several dealings with Butcher & Barlow and they have always been excellent. The Firm is local to me and has an excellent reputation, which is why I originally chose to engage them. The Solicitors’ and support staff who I have had contact with are all friendly and knowledgeable and do an excellent job of representing the Firm’s values.
Contested Probate Solicitors
At Butcher & Barlow, we understand that losing a loved one is difficult, both emotionally and practically, and even more so if a problem arises in regards to their estate. With branches across the North West, we offer a personal and attentive service at the times you need us most.
Disputes can arise for a number of reasons with a deceased’s estate, from suspicious circumstances to a Will’s content or timing. An individual could be financially dependent upon the deceased and not provided for under the terms of the Will or under the intestacy rules when no valid Will exists. Disputes may also arise between beneficiaries and the executors of the estate.
Whether you are an Executor or a Beneficiary, our team will help and guide you with compassion and professionalism. Our contested probate team will listen, taking time to learn about your situation and desired outcome, and guide you through any such disputes. We aim to get to know you and your objectives so that we can provide detailed, common-sense legal advice as well as practical assistance, tailored to your situation and needs.
We take a pragmatic approach and aim to reach a resolution with the least amount of stress or anxiety, and in the most cost efficient way. We will always explore with you all other options before incurring the cost of court proceedings.
