Contesting a Will Step 1: Choose the best Lawyer

You need a court-hardened, uncompromising expert with proven success when contesting a will.

The first step to contesting a will in NSW is extremely important. The outcome of your claim will depend on the experience and knowledge of your lawyer. Choosing a lawyer who has nil or minimal experience in will disputes is almost certain to result in an unsuccessful claim.

Success rate

The specialised lawyers we employ at GMP Will Dispute Lawyers such as Department Heads David Cossalter & Garbis Kolokossian and Team Leader Richele Nelsen have been successful in thousands of cases. In fact, we have a 98% success rate.


Timing is everything when you are challenging a will. Are you aware of the strict time limitations that exist for pursuing a will as a result of an inheritance? For example, NSW has a time limit of 12 months after death, Victoria 6 months after probate and Queensland 9 months after death.

Make sure you employ a lawyer who is across all the state rules and variations.


Lawyers who practice in will disputes, like the experts employed at GMP, have the knowledge and experience you need to successfully contest a will.

Our team are thoroughly familiar with the specialised legislation and what kind of evidence you need to prove your case. They understand all the rules and procedures involved in a family provision claim.
