Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I would be most grateful if you can find an expert who can help. Otherwise do you think the Law Society could help me?
My Employer died in October of last year and Probate began. In January his distant relatives started the process of contesting the Will. They had seen my previous employer's will (he died in May of last year) and noted that they were not left anything in the Will. My solicitor started to act for me and about 4 weeks ago told me she was not qualified to deal with the contesting of Wills. I have now had to find another expert in this field, which I have. I'm sure you can imagine I feel frustrated that she did not tell me in January when the relatives started the process.
I hope this helps.
I am very grateful for your help. The only problem I have is that I built up a good relationship with her and I now feel embarrassed to make a formal complaint. I know she will be receiving a lot of money after working on two probates for me and she always seems so nice and caring. At least I know now where I stand and will think about what I will do next.
