Can You Dispute A Will Or Contest Probate?
If you need advice about a disputed will or contested probate, Duncan McNair has acted regularly and highly successfully over the past 30 years in will disputes including matters of testamentary capacity, duress and undue influence, and in inheritance claims and can help you too.
He also acts in contentious trust matters, challenging the terms of a trust, removing or reinstating trustees, and bringing or resisting claims by beneficiaries of a trust or estate.
Such disputes can often be resolved by the thoughtful and firm presentation of the client’s case. Family situations can be very sensitive and a consensual approach leading to agreement by mediation is often desirable. Whatever situation you face at the moment, Duncan can provide you with advice about your legal rights and your options.
Clients helped include:
(1) Overturning a Will

(2) Successfully defending a Will
Duncan acted successfully for claimant in establishing the validity of the will in the multi-million pound estate of a prominent City lawyer and defeating claims of undue influence (In re Oakley 2015).
All initial enquiries are completely free of charge and without obligation. Duncan believes that anyone with concerns about a Will or Contested Probate should be able to discover their rights and options. He has been very successful in a number of cases in this complex area of law and is keen to help other people with similar challenges.
