Below are just some of the areas we can help you with. If you have any queries about private legal matters of any nature, please contact us and we will be happy to advise you.

Making a will

To ensure that, in the event of your death, your property and assets are given in accordance with your wishes, it is essential that you create a properly drafted will. Our solicitors can help you to do this.


We have considerable experience in dealing with probate and administration matters and can help you deal with all aspects of the estate in what can be a very difficult time.

Trusts take many forms, can be extremely flexible and may mitigate Capital Gains Tax (CGT) and Inheritance Tax (IHT). We can give you professional advice on the most worthwhile trust for you and your beneficiaries.

Contested Probate

A death in the family can be compounded by disputes over a will or the laws of intestacy which come into play if the deceased has not left a properly drafted will. Unfortunately, problems can occur, but we can help you deal with them quickly and decisively.


We give clear, jargon-free advice on all aspects of tax, helping you to make the most of your finances and save money on your tax bills.

Caring for the elderly

We have been looking after generations of families for over a century, and can offer a wide range of practical advice and support for anyone faced with caring for an elderly or infirm relative.
