Disputes over Wills & Probate

Probate dispute

This case involved a dispute between siblings over their deceased parent’s estate, which was substantial.

We acted for the executor of the deceased’s will who obtained evidence suggesting that one of his siblings had misused a lasting power of attorney during the deceased’s lifetime and taken substantial sums for her own benefit which should have remained in the deceased’s estate.

A favorable settlement was obtained whereby the sibling who had power of attorney gave up her share of the deceased’s Estate under the Will.
