Contentious Probate and Funding Your Claim

Contentious Probate – No Win, No Fee



Contentious probate – Are you upset that you have been left out of the Will of a loved one, and you think you should have been provided for? Thinking about contesting the Will?  Worried about how you will pay solicitors’ fees?

Don’t worry. Geoffrey Lurie Solicitors Newcastle are very pleased to announce we are now able to act for our clients in contentious probate matters on a No Win No Fee basis. This means you will not have to pay anything if you lose your claim, and you will only pay our charges if you win.




  • We have expertise in both probate, litigation and contentious probate.
  • We deal with your matter sensitively
  • Committed to getting the best results for our Clients who are contesting a Will, or bringing or defending an Inheritance Act claim.
  • Results focussed, in over 90% of cases, we are able to settle disputes without the need for a trial. This therefor saves on costs, stress and time



For those cases which may not be suitable for No Win No Fee agreements, we can also offer to act for you on a deferred costs basis. This means you will not have to pay any legal fees until the estate assets have been collected and paid.



We understand the difficult financial hardships that can come about in these types of cases. This is why we are now offering these funding options. Although not all cases are suitable for our No Win, No Fee option, we are always happy to consider potential No Win No Fee claims under our Free Case Assessment Scheme.
