Contesting a will, also known as making a family provision claim, is the process of seeking a further or better provision in a deceased person’s will.
There are a number of factors to consider when making a family provision claim, such as: …
We are from Wollongong NSW, a few local lawyers told us not to bother with our case. Not only did Wayne and Nicola take on our case, but they said our contract had an unfair clause according to ACL. Wayne and Nicola helped us prepare all the documentation and evidence for our NCAT hearings. We won our case, receiving our monies paid towards a wedding in Bali that could not be delivered due to COVID-19 International Travel Restrictions. Before engaging Wayne I did not know what a Force Majeure clause was and that ours was unfair! Wayne and Nicola thanks a million couldn't have done it without you! We got married last week in Bowral NSW. Thanks to Stonegate Legal we were not out of pocket!
Thank you, Wayne, and all at Stonegate Legal for all your help.Wayne was able to achieve a successful outcome for us in the end.Unlike many other lawyers he would respond as quickly as possible to all questions and queries we had, and we were never made to feel like we were an inconvenience or that our questions or queries weren’t valid. He would explain everything thoroughly to make sure we were aware of what was going on.Even being from interstate and never actually meeting Wayne face to face we would highly recommend him and his firm to anyone due to how honest and up-front Wayne has always been.He is a man true to his word.
Nicola is very knowledgeable. I found Nicola to be very helpful from the first contact I had with her. Nicola sorted out our legal issue with no fuss and I wouldn't hesitate to use her again. Thanks Nicola
Wayne Davis from Stonegate Legal offered us exceptional professional and upfront advice on our legal matter and supported us the whole way through. Wayne explained the fee's involved from the start to ensure we understood costs, in which we were very thankful. Thank you Wayne we are so grateful for your help on this matter, and to have had a successful outcome! We would highly recommend Wayne Davis for anyone seeking a lawyer who shows honesty and integrity.
Wayne provided good advice, and got us the outcome we were looking for. He was easy to deal with and kept me well informed through the process letting me know the options available as well as his advice. I would recommend Wayne if you are having trouble getting people to pay up!
Thankyou to Wayne for representing us with a judgement debt&dispute with a neighbour via. QCAT.With his experience, professional support and guidance he helped us work through a very stressful time.With Gratitude.Hayley.
After having some issues with vendors paying their bills I searched for a solicitor to assist in issuing a Statutory Demand. I found two solicitor's firms who had useful websites explaining the process. I contacted both and only Wayne from Stonegate Legal contacted me on the next business day (I am still waiting a month later for the other solicitor's firm).The process was explained to me and it was clear and simple. His pricing structure was clearly laid out so I understood what my commitments would be.Wayne was helpful and provided all information necessary. Should the need arise for a commercial solicitor in the future, I will have no hesitation to use Stonegate Legal again.
Wayne assisted us to enforce a QCAT decision. His knowledge base and level of professionalism were outstanding. We were dealing with a very aggressive defendant however Wayne was able to achieve a successful outcome by way of negotiation without the need to undergo expensive long and drawn out Court proceedings. Thank you again Wayne!
