Vancouver Estate Litigation

As estate litigators, we meet people who have been disinherited by their loved ones every day. Often, it isn’t about the money. Disinheritance cases can be fueled by family misunderstandings and heartfelt emotion that leads to a contested will.

If you’ve been disinherited, there’s still hope. Not all wills may be valid, or if it is valid, it may be varied. Wills sometimes reflect old misunderstandings, abusive attitudes, or improper influence. Where there is due course, wills and transfers can be successfully challenged in court.
