Free assessment of the value of your Inheritance Act claim
Because there is no set amount that you can expect to recover in an Inheritance Act claim, we offer a free case assessment service. This will enable us to look at the specific facts of your case and give individual guidance.
If you supply us with details of your case then we will offer guidance on what your inheritance claim could be worth. Please bear in mind that in order to assess what your inheritance claim is worth we will need as much information as possible about the value of the estate, your financial position and the finances of any other party who is seeking a share of the estate.
