Inheritance disputes & contentious probate

Disputes over an inheritance, the contents of a Will or any part of the probate process can be particularly challenging to resolve, with the potential to cause long-term damage to important family relationships. Having the right legal advice and support from the outset is therefore essential.

Tayntons’ inheritance disputes and contentious probate solicitors, based in Gloucester, provide a sensitive, practical approach to resolving these matters with a strong focus on defusing conflict and achieving outcomes that work for everyone.

Wherever possible, we will seek to keep your dispute out of court by finding a solution through negotiation and other non-confrontation approaches. However, our concern will always be to make sure that your rights are protected, so no matter how the dispute progresses, we will ensure we provide the support and guidance you need to secure the right outcome for you and your loved ones.

We offer a 45 minute initial consultation with our Gloucester solicitors to discuss the outline of your inheritance dispute, your options and next steps for £130 plus VAT (£156.00).  Our fees are payable to your solicitor at the start of your meeting.

Please be aware that there are strict time limits for some types of claim, so you should not delay in seeking advice about your position.
