Wills and Probate

When was the last time you thought about making a Will?

Just before going on holiday may be too late! We aim to make the process as easy and as comfortable as possible. Each Will is tailor-made for you, from the most complex to the simplest of family arrangements.
We can give you the all the advice you need when considering where your estate goes and the tax implications following death.


At times of sudden loss you will need a helping hand to deal with all the immediate arrangements. In the time that follows you will need to plan for the future. Our service fulfils each of these needs.


A trust can be the tool by which you can protect yourself for the future. You will need the skills of a specialist in this area to achieve your wishes. We can explain and advise on the various Trusts available. Cost is often modest in the light of potential savings.

Powers of Attorney and Deputyship Applications

When someone loses their mental capacity, it can be very difficult for the family to gain access to accounts to pay bills or deal with property. We can assist at this difficult time.
