Wills, Probate & Trusts

Look after tomorrow, today!
We can help you protect what matters most.

Only one in three people have written a Will and yet it is probably the most important document you will ever sign. It’s never too early to start planning your family’s future.

Our friendly team of probate solicitors, headed by Louise Miller – a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP)  – will spend time getting to know you to fully understand your needs. We’ll help explain any legal jargon and can usually give you a fixed fee quote before we start any work. We can even offer free home visits if you can’t come to our office.

Meet the wills and probate team here.
