Gorvins Approach to Will and Estate Disputes

If you are contesting a Will or you are an executor and a family member or friend is disputing the Will, you need to have confidence that a professional expert will advise on the best course of action to take.

Gorvins have one of the most experienced and highly specialised contentious probate teams in the UK and can help you with:

In any of these situations it is important that you seek specialist legal advice as soon as possible, as there are strict time limits on contesting a Will and making claims against an Estate.

Contesting a Will or defending a claim can be stressful. We’ll always look to make the process as simple and clear as possible for you, offering advice in plain English.

We’ll also try and keep the dispute out of court where possible by using mediators. This is less stressful, less costly and quicker, with most mediated cases being resolved within 6-9 months.
