We can help.

You don’t have to do it all by yourself. We can help!

In fact, many people use solicitors to sort things out for them. If we can help you even just a little bit, then hopefully you can find some time and space and peace of mind so you can concentrate on more important things such as starting the grieving process and coming to terms with your loss.

Fixed Fees

Where possible we try, and charge fixed fees. An indication of our basic fees are set out below.

Probate Only

For example, if all you require is to obtain a Grant of Probate for a simple estate with few assets and for you to deal with everything else, then we can charge a fixed fee of only £500 + vat + disbursements which overall comes to around £762.50 all in.

Simple Estate Administration

For dealing with the administration of a simple estate including obtaining a Grant of Probate and collecting one or two assets in and paying off one or two liabilities and then preparing simple estate accounts and distributing the estate to beneficiaries are usually from £1,000 + vat + disbursements which overall can come to from £1,500 all in.

Complex Estates

We specialise in Probate and Estate Administration work. We are also a genuine firm of solicitors and are fully insured and regulated unlike many other probate firms you may come across on the internet. We have a “Lexcel Accreditation” which is a legal practice quality mark. We also have accreditations with the Law Society “Wills and Inheritance Quality Scheme” which is open only to solicitors who can demonstrate high levels of experience and expertise. We are also members of “Solicitors for the Elderly”.

Distance Is Not A Problem!

We act for clients across England and Wales. Wherever you live we can help. We usually don’t need to meet up face to face and can often deal with most matters over the phone or by email.  However, if necessary with more complex estates we will travel to meet up with you.
