Contesting a will in Manchester

Why contest a will? If a will isn’t fully clear, contains mistakes or doesn’t reflect the wishes of the deceased, these are issues that cannot be ignored. If you are a ‘disappointed beneficiary’, it can be a confusing and upsetting time when a will doesn’t reflect your relationship with someone you’re close to.

Our team of hard-working solicitors in Manchester can resolve these disagreements as quickly as possible without having to take the case to court, unless absolutely necessary.

We understand that disputing a will is a last resort which is why we take the time to listen to your claim and make sensitive steps to deal with all manners of disputes. There are a number of grounds your own personal case can come under that we cover:

Incorrect wills are not uncommon. Research conducted by the Legal Services Board (LSB) shows that two out of 10 wills contain mistakes that could invalidate them, partly due to the prevalence of DIY will kits available in supermarkets, chain stores and on the internet.

Whatever your challenge, our goal is to get you the legal advice and expert mediation you need in order to avoid court action. You may feel nervous or even regretful about putting together a claim, especially if your dispute is with family. But if you choose to seek advice from Access Legal, we have solicitors in Manchester who have helped many people contest a will – call us today or send us an email for a clearer solution to your claim.

Professional negligence solicitors in Manchester

Professional negligence is when a professional fails to perform a paid service to the required standard. If this has happened to you and you’ve suffered financially, a professional negligence solicitor can help you recover your losses.

We instruct experts to deal with the things we’re not experts in ourselves. If you’re working with a solicitor and it’s not going the way you’d like it to, we can help you formulate a plan, change your solicitor and put things right. Whether it’s a personal negligence claim or you’re contesting a will, you’ll be guided by experts every step of the way.

Taking action against any professional who has acted negligently is a hard choice to make, but our team of professional negligence solicitors in Manchester will help build your case and regain the costs you deserve.

Our Access Legal experts cover a broad scope of professions, including professional negligence claims against solicitors, surveyor negligence claims and accountant negligence claims. Whether you’re facing a solicitor who has given you poor advice on the purchase of a property or an accountant who has failed to draw up accounts properly, our best-in-class UK lawyers will do everything they can to make your case a success.

Adam Draper is a partner in the Private Client Department of Access Legal in Manchester, after qualifying in 2002. His specialisms include will trust and estate disputes, court of protection litigation and professional negligence. In 2005, he won a case for family members and numerous charities overturning a will benefiting the deceased’s housekeeper. The court found that the deceased did not have the capacity to make the will themselves.

As well as being recommended by the Legal 500 (2016) as ‘extremely empathetic’, Adam has appeared on various TV and radio programmes and often contributes to local and national press.
