Any life change could trigger writing a will – getting married, having a child, buying  a house, divorce or becoming ill are often the triggers. .Make it as simple and stress-free as possible by using a solicitor  who is qualified to advise you.. Ensure you  are offered a full range of legal services to cover all aspects of Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Trusts plus advice on mitigating Inheritance Tax.

Meet face to face with your solicitor and ensure they discuss options suitable to your personal circumstances. If you  would struggle to get to their office, a home or hospital visit can be arranged. An expert solicitor will  have a wide range of experience in the preparation of Wills, whatever the size of your estate and can provide advice in a  straightforward and easy to understand way.
