We recently represented Mrs B at a mediation of her claim that had been brought under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.
Mrs B pursued her inheritance claim against her mother’s estate as an ‘adult child’ under the 1975 Act. The defendants to the inheritance claim were her own children, her brother, her niece and her nephew.
Mrs B had been left out of her mother’s will following a long period of estrangement that resulted from a family argument many years earlier.
We felt that her exclusion from her mother’s will was unfair and that financial provision should have been provided to her. We therefore agreed to work on her inheritance claim on a No Win, No Fee basis.
We successfully negotiated a five figure settlement for Mrs B at a mediation and in addition recovered all of her legal costs.
