Contesting a Will – Web-site Design Rules OK

 contesting a will

As an experiment, we recently had our Contested Probate Website – Contesting A Will  re-designed because the quality of the leads we were getting from our site, whilst prolific, left quite a lot to be desired.

Indeed, the old website was flatteringly described by one of our probate team as ‘tacky’.

There is no doubt whatsoever that following the re-launch last week the quality of the leads this site has generated is hugely improved.

There is a school of thought that web-site design does not matter and that your advertising can be the child of  creative chaos and can look like a ‘car crash’ without it affecting your results.

Thinking of Retiring? Forget it!

retirementLots in the news today about everyone having to work longer before getting their State Pension.

Not entirely unexpected as the present Government has already laid plans to make us struggle at the coal face until men hit 66 and women 65.

But that was all before billions were paid to shore up our banking system and the next Government, of whatever hue, is going to have to deal with a massive black hole in the country’s finances. Pensions are one of the biggest problems (and don’t get me started on workplace pension schemes – a topic for another day!).

The Queen of PreNups…Congratulations, Maeve!

Our heartiest congratulations to Maeve for her magnificent performance on the BBC TV Breakfast Show on Saturday morning.

The Queen of PreNups

Maeve O'Higgins Queen of PreNups

Whisked away by BBC chauffeur to Shepherd’s Bush before dawn, Maeve pulled off a masterful ‘double bill’ performance at 6.10am and again, as a panellist, at 7.10am, dealing most skilfully with all questions thrown at her by Charlie Stayt in spite of the unearthly hour, the glare of the TV cameras and her national audience.

 Maeve is now undeniably the Queen of PreNups  in the UK….!

Hits on our Pre-Nuptial Agreement Site  increased by 250% as a result!

Well done, Maeve!!!!!!

Contesting A Will Becomes Fashionable

Full marks! Dangerous, Invincible and Bad…but at least the King of Pop made a Will  …though it hasn’t stopped mother Katherine Jackson, allegedly egged on by father Joe (totally ignored in the Will ), from mounting a legal challenge and contesting a will that leaves everything to The Michael Jackson Family Trust.

Contesting a Will

She is seeking to wrest control of the USD500 million estate from the executors appointed by the Will, notwithstanding a ‘no contest’ clause in the Will that disinherits any beneficiary who challenges its validity or its terms.

It will no doubt be a thriller and there will be blood on the dance floor at the end of it all.  Ho, Ho.
