    Hi Nikki2019,
    Sorry to hear of your loss and the subsequent issue you have. So you attended the solicitors to hear what the Will said is that correct?
    Who is the executor of the Will? Who instructed the solicitors regarding the Will or are they the executors?
    This will make a difference. If you have not instructed the solicitor yourself then it is relevant who has as their duty is to them.
    If you stated you did not wish them to discuss what you had spoken about they should have informed you of their duties to the estate including executor and beneficiaries if they are instructed or at the least confirmed they would need to discuss what was spoken about.
    The relevant issue here is who are the solicitors acting for?
    I am a qualified solicitor and am happy to try and assist informally, where needed.

    Any posts I make on LegalBeagles are for information and discussion purposes only and shouldn't be seen as legal advice. Any practical advice I give is without liability. I do not represent people on the forum.

    If in doubt you should always seek professional face to face legal advice.
