It is always difficult dealing with the death of a loved one.

Deceased Estates

As Probate Lawyers, our role is to make sure that you do not have to stress over the legal side of a deceased estate. We assist clients by making sure all estates are administered professionally, carefully and swiftly. 

We can be trusted to provide you with a caring approach while processing all matters concerning the administration of estates in an expeditious and cost effective manner. If probate is needed, we can obtain a Grant of Probate. If there is no Will, Letters of Administration can be obtained. If a Will is challenged, then we can conduct any court litigation which might ensue, either protecting the executors and beneficiaries or representing the person who is seeking a share of the estate.
