Inheritance Dispute Case Studies

Real-life inheritance dispute case studies. Read our success stories here.

Our specialist inheritance dispute lawyers have dealt with countless cases over the years and we are extremely proud of our track record of success. To give you a taste of the cases we deal with on a day-to-day basis we have prepared a number of inheritance dispute case studies. These are short summaries of real-life cases we have handled, and include details of the legal issues involved together with the outcomes that were achieved. In order to preserve client confidentiality all these case studies are naturally presented on a ‘no names’ basis.

These real-life inheritance dispute case studies showcase the range of successful claims we have handled and the variety of the contentious probate work we undertake.

If you have an inheritance dispute involving issues that are similar to any of those highlighted in a case study then please feel free to contact our free helpline by phone or email for further details or guidance on the options open to you. Alternatively you can contact the lawyer who dealt with the case direct.

The inheritance dispute case studies published on this site represent only a very small fraction of all the claims we have dealt with over the course of the many years we have specialised in this area of law. So even if you cannot find a case study that precisely matches your own circumstances, then please contact us, as the chances are that at least one member of our team will have dealt with a similar claim.

We are often able to work on a No Win, No Fee basis where the prospects of success are good. We are always happy to look at a case without charge to consider whether this funding option is available.

If having read our inheritance dispute case studies you would like to know where you stand, then contact our free inheritance disputes helpline which you can call on 0333 888 0407. Alternatively you can send an email to us at [email protected]
