Plan Ahead

It is vital that personal loss is not made worse by poorly thought out wills and settlements. The key is to take action now to make good, clear wills and to carry out effective financial planning long before it becomes a problem. 

Elderly Clients

We offer a caring and sympathetic approach when helping with the management of the personal affairs of those who are elderly or otherwise vulnerable and no longer able to cope for themselves.

Bereavement Consultation

If you have been recently bereaved we offer a no obligation consultation to go through a check list of steps you may need to take and to discuss how we can help you moving forward. 

Whilst we are happy to provide you with a full service and deal with everything in connection with the winding up of the estate for you there are other options which might be more appropriate, for example, we could obtain the formal grant of probate or letters of administration for you and you then deal with the post-grant work yourself.

Call us on 01332 348 484 to discuss how we can help you.

Contesting a Will

Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult things any of us have to go through. The grieving process is hard and more protracted when there is a dispute over a loved ones will. 

You may feel that you have been unfairly left out of the estate or that the will is in some way defective as the deceased did not have mental capacity, didn’t understand the terms of the will or was coerced into writing it. You may feel that the will does not carry out your loved ones intentions either because of a clerical error or because of the failure on the part of the person preparing the will to understand instruction. These are complicated matters and it is important that you seek legal advice as soon as possible. Please contact us now for a free assessment of your claim.
