Helping you to resolve legal disputes
There are certain points in life when you may need to consider taking legal action against other individuals or companies - or defend yourself against claims.

Whatever challenge you are facing, the experienced team of solicitors at W H Matthews & Co can provide you with the guidance and legal support you need.

Probate and inheritance disputes
When a loved one passes away, unfortunately disputes involving their will can occasionally arise, especially if someone feels they have unfairly been denied an inheritance. If there are concerns as to the mental capacity of the deceased at the time they made their will or suspicions of undue influence, challenges to the will may be brought. Various people connected to the testator can also bring claims under the Inheritance Act. Whether you wish to challenge a will or defend a claim, it’s important to have expert probate solicitors on your side to provide professional legal advice.
