Contesting A Will

Losing a loved one is  devastating and can become more difficult if there is a dispute over the Will. A dispute may arise for a number of reasons, including:

  • Feeling unfairly left out of a will
  • Not being adequately provided for
  • The validity of the Will is being questioned

Regardless of whether you are looking to challenge or defend the validity of a Will, our solicitors can help. We always look to identify the issues as soon as possible and put a clear plan of action in place to achieve a resolution.

What our clients say

Jane Scott

I contacted Butcher & Barlow for advice during a really distressing time. My initial phone conversation with the receptionist was professional and very helpful. Samuel Dale took charge of my affairs and proved to be a real lifeline. He was very professional with his advice and explained the reasons for his actions clearly and precisely. He kept me up to date every step of the way and always responded to my telephone calls. He copied me in on all correspondence. Samuel’s secretary Jennifer Brown also made sure I was kept informed and made sure any messages were received and acted upon. Butcher & Barlow, and in particular Samuel Dale made sure I had the professional advice and support to enable me to take control of an extremely distressing situation and I would highly recommend them and will certainly use them again should the need arise.

In my view, there is a clear teamwork ethos, and high standards are expected across the department.
