Don’t delay in seeking expert legal advice
We understand the pain and emotion involved in losing a loved one but we also stress how important it is to seek specialist legal advice quickly when an inheritance dispute arises.
Contacting our team of contested Will solicitors in Barnstaple quickly could ensure that you don’t lose the ability to challenge the distribution of the estate or validity of a Will.
The benefits of mediation
Judges will always encourage families to resolve inheritance claims and will disputes before they’re forced to reach the courtroom and at Slee Blackwell we’re strong advocates of alternative dispute resolution, particularly mediation. Mediation is not only cheaper and faster than court action, but it also offers a better chance of restoring family relationships.
Our team often work on a No Win – No Fee basis, and are always happy to review the suitability of any potential case free of charge. We can also work on a ‘deferred fees’ basis where payment of the legal costs is deferred until the estate has been administered.
