Your professional advocates since 1927


Our probate team consists of experienced solicitors and ‘Trusts and Estates Practitioners’ (TEP) who have extensive experience in advising on succession planning and drafting wills. If you are an Executor or if your relative or loved-one has died without making a will, please contact us to arrange a free initial consultation where we will run through exactly what needs to be done and will answer any queries you may have.

We can usually agree a fixed fee with you so that you can have peace of mind that there are no hidden charges. However if the matter is complex we may need to employ an hourly rate but we are transparent every step so that there are surprises. We have vast experience in the following areas of probate law;

Estate Distribution

Drafting Wills

Probate Applications

Trusts & Estate Planning

Inheritance Tax Queries and considerations

Contesting a Will

Contentious Trust & Estate Matters

Asset Protection

Succession Rights

Charitable Requests
