How We Can Help – Estate Disputes

Estate disputes come in all varieties, and typically at the most difficult times of our lives. We have managed many estate disputes and have achieved excellent results for our clients. Whether you have been left out of a will or are an executor defending a family provision claim, our estate disputes team can help you find a workable solution.

You may be challenging the validity of a will that you believe was made in fraudulent circumstances, or you may need help working out the terms of an ambiguous will. We can step you through the legal process and provide options to deal with a range of disputes. Our initial goal will be to achieve a fair result without going to court, which can add to the stress and costs of a complicated situation. If litigation is necessary, however, our New Lambton lawyers will provide strong advocacy and fight hard for you or the estate you are defending.

How We Can Help – Traffic Law

Being charged with a traffic offence can have a significant impact. Many offences result in demerit points, a stain on your driving history, and potential increases in insurance premiums. Some traffic offences, however, are so serious that they can result in severe penalties and even potential imprisonment. Our experienced New Lambton solicitors regularly appear in the Local Court for all types of traffic offences including:

• Exceeding the speed limit
• Driving without a licence/while suspended
• Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
• Driving dangerously
• Furious or reckless driving
• Failing to stop or assist
• Negligent driving causing death or grievous bodily harm

We will review the circumstances of the charges and investigate whether there is scope to negotiate a reduced penalty and/or alternative sentencing arrangements (as relevant) to help mitigate the consequences. With experienced traffic law solicitors serving New Lambton and the greater Newcastle area, we are highly experienced and well-placed to help.
