Unfortunately, professional will writers and estate advisers can sometimes make mistakes that can result in a loss.
Common mistakes can include failing to properly listen to or take full instructions from a client, or failing to prepare a will that reflects a client's intentions. Other mistakes may include failing to prepare a will that is clear and unambiguous, failing to make sure that a client had the capacity to make a will, failing to check that a will was properly signed and witnessed, or failing to prepare a will before a client dies.
Where a mistake has been made, we can help to put it right, either by rectifying the mistake or by pursuing compensation for any financial losses suffered as a result. It is not a secret that disputes are seen as expensive and lengthy. Once we understand your specific issue, we advise you on what the costs might be.
One of our promises is to keep you up-to-date on costs throughout the process so that there are no surprises when your dispute is resolved. Our lawyers will negotiate on your behalf and resolve your matter as effectively as we can.
We may also be able to use an alternative dispute resolution with the other side. Mediation is a formal process which can often reach a faster conclusion, reducing expense and avoiding the court process. Our disputes resolution expert Daniel Muckle will discuss the best approach with you and you can then decide which approach will work best for you.
