A bit about me

Working with people at a time when emotions are running high means that listening to their concerns, as well as striving for the best outcome for them, is very important. Challenging or disputing a will is always difficult for those directly involved, whether they are beneficiaries, executors or trustees; my role is to combine objectivity and support.

Dispute resolution is endlessly varied – inheritance claims, executors’ duties and the grounds for challenging a will are three of the main areas where I work with clients.

Outside work, I like getting outside, either walking or running; I completed a couch to 5k challenge this year.

Want to know more?

Please be open – people’s circumstances vary widely, and I would always rather know the full situation.

Take time to consider your options and make the right decisions for you.

Q. What is the cost of initial advice/sending a letter?

A. Each case is different and it will depend upon the complexity of the circumstances.

Q. Can I see a copy of the will if I am a beneficiary?

A. The short answer is no (unless you are named as an executor). A will is a private document and remains so until a grant is issued when it becomes public. You can then search online and download a copy of the grant and will for a small cost.

Q. Can I challenge a will?

A. This will depend upon whether you have legal standing and grounds to do so.
