Rachel Roberts

Director - Estate Litigation

Biography

“Supporting clients at a difficult time in their life, is what I love most about being a lawyer”, says Rachel Roberts.

“Helping clients navigate through complicated legal issues to ultimately achieve a fair outcome, is so rewarding.”

As a Director of ‘No Win, No Fee’ estate law firm, WillClaim, Rachel has a genuine interest in the estate litigation law. She believes that with good counsel, the system can work for people who have been treated unfairly in a Will. 

She feels that the best results are achieved by legal practitioners who genuinely care about their clients. This sentiment is illustrated in a story she relates below: 

“I recently acted for an adolescent child who had sadly lost his mother to cancer. The child had not been adequately provided for in his mother’s Will. 

We were able to negotiate an outcome for our client that will see him have the resources he needs to finish his schooling and to complete tertiary education. He also has a ‘nest egg’ for the future that will enable him to put a good deposit on a home when the time comes. 

We were able to do this on a “No Win, No Fee” basis and we achieved a result that will provide this lovely young man with a strong financial platform on which to build his future.”

An emerging leader in NSW estate litigation, Rachel is passionate about expanding the reach of WillClaim to help change people’s lives for the better. 

“We care about our clients and work with them, as well as for them,” she says.

“With our ‘No Win, No Fee’ policy, clients can pursue a claim even if they don’t have the significant financial resources that are usually needed to commence legal proceedings.”
