Making a will gives you certainty, reduces worry and gives you the peace of mind of knowing exactly how your money, property and possessions will be dealt with after your death.

Lasting Power Of Attorney

We can explain what a Lasting Power of Attorney is and why you or your relatives may need one. Nobody knows what the future holds and situations can arise such as failing health, where we are no longer able to take care of our own affairs.  What if you physically or mentally struggled to manage your own affairs or understand what you were doing? How would your funds and assets be dealt with?

Settlement Agreements

If your employment isn’t working out, an employer may offer what is known as a settlement agreement which is a sum of money in return for you giving up any existing or future rights that you might have against your employer. Often an Employer will offer to pay the costs of the solicitor advising an Employee and ultimately signing off the Settlement Agreement. We will always try and work on a fixed fee and within the parameters of what costs have been offered so that an employee does not need to pay anything extra to ourselves. Please call us for a free no obligation chat about your Settlement Agreement on 01536 276300 or 01536 311690 or use our online enquiry form.
