Personal and Estate Law

We take great pride in assisting our client’s through the different stages of life, both the good and the difficult. We provide assistance with:

  • Wills
  • Powers of attorney
  • Management of estates

We take both pride and personal care in assisting our clients through the different stages of life, both the good and the more challenging. We can help with:

 

Wills

Your will is vital document, not just for your but for those you leave behind. We work very closely with our client to guide them through the process of making a will that reflects their wishes and that follows the correct procedures to avoid any future legal problems for the family.

 

Powers of Attorney

Powers of Attorney are used when you are not able to look after your affairs for yourself, such as your property, financial management and personal welfare. We can work with you to help you chose the right people to whom the Powers of Attorney should be granted on your behalf, and manage the legal process.

 

Management of estates

It is always a difficult and emotional time when a loved one passes away, so we understand the need to guide you through the process of administering an estate clearly and with kindness. For details such as obtaining a grant of probate or dealing with an estate where there was no Will, the team will look after all legal aspects sympathetically and respectfully.
