Our experienced team pride ourselves on our open, friendly approach, always dealing with matters in a compassionate and professional manner to achieve the best possible outcome for you and your family.

Wills and Probate

Making a Will allows you to control what happens to the assets which you have accumulated during your lifetime. A Will also enables you to protect your family and friends and control who should look after those dearest to you. If you do not make a Will, you will die intestate. This means that strict legal rules apply as to how your money and property is distributed.

Statutory Wills

A Statutory Will is the name given to a Will that the Court of Protection can put in place for a person who’s lost the capacity to make a Will themselves. One may also be required if the person has a Will but it is out of date or there’s been a change in their circumstances. In each case, an application for a statutory Will to be put in place must be made to the Court of Protection.

Powers Of Attorney

A lasting power of attorney is a legal document in which you give another person or persons (the attorney) authority to make certain decisions on your behalf. There are two types of lasting power of attorney: property and financial affairs, which allows your attorney to deal with your property finances, and health and welfare, which allows your attorney to make ongoing care decisions on your behalf, should you lack the mental capacity to do so.


Our lawyers can help you protect assets and wealth for the benefit of your family, both now and in the future. Providing for your family is an essential goal for most people, but it isn’t always easy – simply passing wealth on in your Will or as gifts while you’re alive can be risky and inefficient.


In the event that someone close to you has died our probate solicitors can assist you with the probate process, including registration of the death, preparation of inheritance tax accounts, wills and trusts.

Court Of Protection

The Court of Protection and the Office of the Public Guardian exists to protect and manage the financial and property affairs of people who lack the mental capacity to do so themselves. The court does this by appointing a deputy capable of managing those affairs on their behalf.
