My name is Greg Smith. I am a will dispute lawyer. For many years I have focused on helping people bring will disputes to a quick and successful conclusion.
Personal Care throughout your claim
I do not pass my clients on to junior solicitors after the initial meeting. I maintain a "hands on” role with a client’s claim from our initial contact to the end of your matter. You deal only with me until your claim is finished. You will also have access to me by mobile , email and skype.
Some people I have helped over the years include:
Bob* lived and cared for his brother until the brother died of cancer . After the funeral the family wanted Bob to move out of the house leaving him with nowhere to live. When I took on the case I made sure Bob was allowed to remain in his brother’s house while Bob's claim was prepared. Within 15 months the case was in court. After a hearing of less than an hour Bob had won his case. The court awarded Bob enough money to buy a comfortable unit in his local area.
Ted’s* defacto partner of 12 years died without updating her will made many years before they had met. With my help, Ted will receive over 80% of her $1.5m estate on the sale of the townhouse. The claim settled at mediation without going to court within 13 weeks .Ted now has enough to relocate himself and their 2 fox terriers in Sydney.
Julie* received over $80,000 as an out of court settlement from her friend’s estate. Julie had lived with her friend in the same household and had provided her with care and support.
I invite you to review the material on these pages and trust you will find it useful.
This website cannot and should not be an alternative to a meeting to discuss your personal circumstances and should not be relied upon in isolation as legal advice.
We recently helped Merrilyn who has written to us:
My dear Greg,
I have nothing but praise for you as a lawyer and as a human being and for the way you handled everything with my case. I deeply appreciate all the effort you have put in on my behalf.
You have demonstrated repeatedly that you are a man of principle and integrity, and the best of human qualities are alive and well within you. I have good news for you too - with the settlement money you were able to acquire for me, I am now the proud owner of a 2012 Ford Fiesta hatchback ( a deep torquoise colour) and she is just beautiful. I also have a beautiful new lounge. This would not have been possible without your help. Therefore, I will always hold you in high esteem and whenever you come to mind, I think of you with warmth, admiration and appreciation. I would highly recommend you and your associates to anyone needing such services.
Yours most sincerely,
