Providing legal clarity in difficult times.

Dealing with the death of a family member can be overwhelming, and grasping the legalities at the same time can be daunting.

Our compassionate and experienced solicitors can ease the burden of probate during this difficult time. As independent legal experts, we can navigate the often complex and lengthy legal process with clarity, providing sound judgement and advice where no will is written, and the family disagrees.

We can advise on the inheritance implications and make sure that the most effective claims are made to HMRC to ensure you only pay the correct amount of inheritance tax. We see too many examples of executors not knowing the rules and making incorrect claims and hence costly mistakes.
