  • Will Writing Services

    A will is one of the most important legal documents you will ever produce, and is the only way to ensure that your wishes are carried out and your estate is divided in the way that you choose.

  • Probate Services

    Probate is a legal process that occurs once an individual has died, where your Executors/Personal Representatives handle your estate, including taxes, debts and distributions of inheritance.

  • Estate Planning

    Sometimes your circumstances may require additional clauses in your will to protect your assets against remarriage or bankruptcy or divorce of a beneficiary or to assist in mitigating inheritance tax.

    Having a Lasting Power of Attorney will allow your attorneys to make decisions about your property and financial affairs if you have lost the capacity to do so yourself. These must be completed while you still have full capacity. Don't leave it to late. ... See MoreSee Less
