Thinking of contesting a will? You’re going to want the support of lawyers who will back you on a no win no fee basis.
Our belief in access to justice has lead us to offer a No Win No Fee arrangement for Family Provision Claims. It seems counter-intuitive that the people who most need a lawyer, can’t afford one when their rights are at risk.
How does your No Win No Fee arrangement work?
Our No Win, No Fee policy is straightforward. We perform a free, no obligation case assessment. If we take on your case you have no upfront costs to pay. We’ll pay outlays including the initial filing fees up to $2,500.
At the outset we’ll explain the estate dispute timeline, including a target date to settle your claim or have your case heard at trial.
We provide you with a costs agreement which sets out our obligations to you, and your obligations to us. Your most important obligation to us is to provide truthful instructions and to let us know if your circumstances change.
Does this apply to all Wills and Estates matters?
No, our no win no fee policy only applies to contested wills.
We offer affordable, flexible fee arrangements for non-speculative matters including:-
- Applications for Probate or Letters of Administration;
- Wills and Estate Planning;
- Defending Contested Wills.
As a boutique firm we can help ease the burden of defending a contested will by deferring payment until settlement in certain circumstances.
Note: strict time limits that apply to will disputes so please contact us today for a free consultation.
