Estate Matters

Have you lost a loved one? Are you unsure about what to do? Are you responsible for distributing an estate as per a will? Has your deceased left without a will?

Knowing the correct procedures following the passing of a loved can be overwhelming, especially given most people have never acted as executors. At Hikma Legal, we want to help you through this challenging time by taking the stress out of the duties that arise

Our friendly and supportive team are understanding and will help you through this process. Providing financial and practical certainty for you at a time of emotional distress is important for us.

Following a death, a person is generally appointed as an executor for the deceased’s estate. This person is responsible for the distribution of the deceased’s estate in accordance with their will. Our friendly estate law team will assist you through the estate administration process by:

  • Applying to the court for a Grant of Probate
  • Obtaining letters of administration
  • Identifying the deceased’s estate and liabilities
  • Administering the estate in the best interests of the beneficiaries.

Our boutique legal practice enables us to make time for you, provide flexible appointments, fixed fees and answer your questions along the way. Let us help you.

Client Testimonials

After going for two previous meetings with legal offices prior to talking to Wazhma at Hikma Legal, I felt very overwhelmed and very scared and emotional. Hikma Legal made my experience the best it could be in the circumstances, Wazhma was very empathetic to my situation and made things easy and streamlined for me and was very upfront about what to expect so that there wouldn’t be any hidden surprises. From the bottom of my heart, I’m so grateful I found them. Thank you so much. I would highly recommend this beautiful firm to any persons going through a legal crisis.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your representation over my case. You are not just lawyers but lawyers with soul and conscience. You were extremely professional and excellent communicators and you also show patience, compassion, understanding and dedication to your clients. It’s a pleasure to recommend the Hikma Legal team to anyone needing help and services.
I don’t know where to start in order to thank you and your firm. I will start by expressing my appreciation for standing by me and having faith. I didn’t just feel like a number or just another client, I felt like I was the only client at times, given the attention you set aside for my case. I know I will be experiencing challenges in the future but I know there will be people in the world that will help. That’s the reassurance that I feel now, thanks to Hikma Legal.
