Contentious Probate

Contentious probate refers to a situation where there is a dispute over a will or an inheritance, and specialist lawyers are vital in ensuring a fair outcome. At Bray & Bray we have plenty of experience in dealing with complex cases where people do not see eye to eye over an estate, and we are committed to working towards fast solutions which allow everyone involved to move forward with their lives.

If you are involved in a dispute over the will of a member of your family or another individual we can help.

Call us today on 0116 254 8871 and speak to our specialist contentious probate solicitors, including a Member of The Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS 2011).

How we can help

We approach contentious probate in a variety of ways, depending on specific circumstances. Contentious probate cases we regularly come across include situations involving:


Mediation is a widely used tool in the legal sector, and aims to remove the need for disputes to move into the courts. It involves frank and transparent discussions between parties, and will be carried out under the guidance of a qualified contentious probate lawyer.


Sometimes disputes over wills and estates have to be settled in court and we can represent people fighting all kinds of cases. We have represented children of a deceased parent, ex partners, will executors and many other individuals.
