Wills & Probate
Planning for what happens in the event of death is never an easy thing to talk about. However careful preparation for end of life shouldn’t be overlooked and can provide much needed peace of mind that your wishes will be respected once you are gone.
Writing a Will is something most of us won’t consider until later in life.
A professionally drafted Will is however, one of the most important documents that an individual can have. A Will clarifies what happens to your assets after you die – who gets what, when they get it and can include details of how assets are managed.
Access to DIY Wills both online and via large high street newsagents provide a tempting option, however the devil is in the detail when drafting these documents and a lack of care can often lead to unnecessary problems.
From a basic Will which will suit most of our clients, through to complex Wills including all possible considerations – we have the expertise to help.
We are quick to respond and to prepare documentation, but we won’t rush you into making a decision; we are good at listening and deal promptly with concerns and queries. Our efficient but personal approach means that your experience with us will be a positive one.

We are here to:-
- help administer any size of estate, from the simple to the very complex;
