Specialist lawyer for inheritance law - The difference in quality

We do what we can: inheritance law. We master all facets of this field of law and therefore achieve the best possible results for you. Attorney Dr. Michael Gottschalk bears the title of specialist lawyer for inheritance law. This means for you that your lawyer has many years of experience in the complicated field of inheritance law. The title Fachanwalt Erbrecht is only awarded by the Chamber of Lawyers to lawyers who have been working in the field of inheritance law for many years and who have successfully completed the course Fachanwalt Erbrecht and the corresponding examination.

You can therefore rest assured that your case will only be handled by a lawyer who is perfectly familiar with this field. Dr. Gottschalk puts his competence to work for you with emphasis. The difference brings the best possible result for you: Only a lawyer who feels secure in the complicated law of succession, who knows all the tricks and knacks, will recognise the weaknesses in the opponent's argumentation at the decisive moment and set the decisive points for you.

The specialist solicitor for inheritance law takes helpful tactical steps in the run-up to a legal dispute. It does not always make sense to provide the opponent with all legal arguments right from the start - however impressive they may be. Often it can be more effective to deliver the decisive argument only later, e.g. only when a deadline for the opponent has expired, one's own legal position has hardened over time or the opponent would have to contradict his previous argumentation. Therefore, do not take the risk that your lawyer does not know the tricks of the trade in inheritance law. The seal of quality Fachanwalt Erbrecht protects you from this.
