We shouldn't be too surprised that so few of us bother to make adequate plans for the inheritance of our assets. Who wants to think about their own passing? Although death is inevitable, the good news is that we’re living longer but that poses further issues of physical and mental capacity.

Our specialist probate solicitors can offer impartial, honest and caring advice on all aspects of Wills, Tax Planning, Care, Estates and Powers of Attorney.

If you don’t have a Will or have one that requires updating don’t put it off, call us today to make a quick and free appointment to review your situation.
