Challenging the validity of multiple wills for a person who lacks capacity

Amy and Nick acted for a client who challenged the validity of his late mother’s last will, on the basis that she was suffering an insane delusion that she was trying to kill him. In total, she made 12 wills; four English, six Spanish and two which purported to be worldwide.

This matter was complex as the executor of the 12th will (another solicitor) was defending the claim, despite early strong medical evidence and hundreds of voicemails left by the deceased in support of the client’s assertions that his mother did not have the required mental capacity to make a will.

The matter was closely managed and the client eventually won his claim and was awarded costs on an indemnity basis.
