Estate Planning, Administration & Disputes
Will Preparation and Estate Planning
A will prepared by a solicitor is the best way to ensure your estate is divided according to your wishes rather than the fallback statutory rules of intestacy. Home-made wills can result in the executor of your estate applying to the Supreme Court to determine your true intentions at the time of making of your will. Your estate would be reduced by legal costs. In a worst-case scenario, a will prepared incorrectly by yourself would be invalid leaving you with no will and having died intestate.
MBA Lawyers can assist you in relation to your estate litigation matter or enquiry. Our lawyers are experienced in bringing claims on behalf of people who are challenging Wills or making family provision claims. We also act on behalf of Executors and Administrators defending claims that are being made to challenge a Will or defending family provision claims being made against an Estate. We have built excellent relationships with some of the leading barristers in this area and we are well-equipped to assist you in relation to this specialised area of the law.

What Our Clients Have to Say
My life changed in November 2017 when I had a fall at work which left me with a catastrophic spinal cord injury. The obvious changes to my life meant that I required the help of a legal advisor to help me in any claim for compensation I might have been entitled to. This area is a minefield but I was very lucky to be pointed in the direction of White Jordin as part of the MBA Group. The whole team were incredible, the detail they went into, the drive and passion and the empathy towards myself were not only refreshing, but gave me the belief that they would get me the best result. And boy did they deliver, the compensation I received was far in excess of anything I could have dreamed of, and at the end during that mediation process Mitchell and his team were in the room with me, making a very tense day rather more than I could have hoped. Not only did I get a fantastic result which has set me up for the rest of my life, but the legal bill was way less than I had been expecting. So please, don’t look any further than this team, nobody will get you a better deal, nobody will be more honest and I regard the team as my go to forever. Thankyou so much, thankyou Mitchell, Rosemary, Chloe and the wonderful Matthew Holmes(barrister).- Mike B Personal Injuries client
I would like to pass on our sincere thanks to the MBA team, and in particular to Tessa Calver-James. Throughout our dispute application Tessa displayed genuine understanding and compassion, and she always advised us in a professional, reliable manner. As you are well aware our matter was drawn out over a number of years for reasons beyond our control, and as difficult and frustrating as it was for us at times support and guidance from MBA never wavered as we worked toward the end goal. I would personally like to acknowledge your good self (Clayton) for your belief and encouragement, and for giving me the confidence to pursue this matter initially. As for Tessa, she was always available to reach out to when any concerns or issues arose, and was always empathetic and on hand to offer constructive advice and support which was invaluable and measured. Lastly my wife and I would like to thank you all for achieving such a successful outcome with all orders sought being granted to us! MBA have literally changed our lives.Paul & Helena

I received excellent professional service from MBA lawyers. I highly recommend James to give you his best advice.Sheryl G - 5 star Google review
I cannot thank Joelene enough for resolving and finalising my family case in such a short time frame! I had been battling my case on my own for a year. Then I had a family friend recommend Joelene. I had my doubts at first, as I did not believe my case would be resolved prior to my fourth court hearing. But Joelene did exactly that! In just over one month, she had everything signed and finalised (no court appearance required ). I can not recommend Joelene highly enough for all family matters. Her service is above and beyond my expectations and were all at a reasonable price. I wish I had of known about you a year ago Joelene. Thank you again!CC
