Wills, Probate & Administration of Estates
how we can help
Area of Expertise
We provide expert advice on all areas of Probate Law and have a wide range of experience in all aspects of drafting Wills, Estate Planning, the Administration of Estates and applications to the Probate Office on behalf of Legal Personal Representatives in both testate and intestate situations.
The making of a Will is essential to ensure that there is a record of your wishes and how you want your estate to be distributed when you die. Irrespective of age or circumstance, we advise that you take time to consider your situation and to make a Will.
In addition to ensuring that your wishes upon death are implemented, a properly constructed Will can also lead to a significant tax saving and speed up and ease the difficult upsetting probate process for your family.
If your loved one passed on without making a Will, our dedicated and experienced team can guide your family through the necessary probate procedures.
The team can provide assistance and guidance in the administration of estates when no Will has been made (intestate estates) and in often complex situations where it is necessary to trace back through two or more deceased estates which were not administered in the immediate aftermath.
We offer advice on making a Will and estate planning for individuals, couples and families, and on succession rights. The importance of making a Will cannot be overstated. It is of great relief and comfort to families when they discover that their loved one has taken the time to make a properly constructed Will ensuring proper provision has been made for family and loved ones.
