If you prefer to deal with the estate yourself, we can provide background advice where necessary.


If court action is needed to protect your inheritance, our probate solicitors give realistic advice while using our expertise to ensure your entitlement is recognized. We can help whenever you need to use the courts in this country, even if your family member lived and owned property overseas.


As you grow older, we can support you or vulnerable members of your family by drafting Trusts and Powers of Attorney and by making sure your wishes are respected through a Living Will. Our probate solicitors are always there to help.
