Mediating Conflict Resolution


Mediating Conflict in Will Disputes

We often take inquiries from potential clients and present them with their legal rights, but it’s clear they don’t like conflict and the thought of having a hard conversation with a family member about a will dispute, be it a parent, step-parent, sibling or step-sibling is daunting. Normally the relationship has broken down, been fractured for many years. The other party has an abusive nature, is dismissive of your valid concerns or generally unwilling to listen or compromise in any way. 


O’Connor, Ruddy & Garrett’s Approach

At O’Connor, Ruddy & Garrett we take the burden of having to communicate with these people and remove the angst while managing all the communication between the family members, the lawyers or the other parties involved in the matter. 

We had a matter recently where we had a client that was uncomfortable about talking to their older brother and sister, the executors of the estate for a number of different reasons. Because she preferred that we manage the communication on her behalf, she was able to provide us with considered, appropriate and meaningful instructions to properly communicate her wishes. She later said that she would not have been able to effectively communicate with her siblings unless she had our assistance.

Communication Requests

These requests can be as simple as requesting a copy of a will or a prior will, understanding what the assets are in an estate or negotiating an outcome of an estate dispute. We can manage what and how the communication is delivered so you can achieve your desired outcome.

So if you don’t want to deal with other parties to a dispute, please contact us today for a free initial assessment and we can manage all communication on your behalf. Thank you.
