Estate planning for yourself or a loved one can be a tricky time. It can be a lengthy process, dealing with paperwork and time-consuming legislation. Our expert solicitors are well-experienced in this field and can support and advise you along the way. Our lawyers can help you with:

Court of Protection: Applying for Court of Protection helps you deal with the affairs of someone who lacks the mental capacity to manage their own. We can help you with this process which can take up to 6 months depending on the situation.

Lasting Power of Attorney: It is important for all individuals to assign a Lasting Power of Attorney. This is someone who will make financial and healthcare decisions on your behalf in the event that you become unable to.

Will Writing solicitors: Writing a will is a process that many don’t consider until they are older. But it is important at all ages to have a will written, especially if you have joint assets with someone or have children. Our will writing solicitors can help you put together a legally binding document to ensure that your wishes are carried out after you pass.

Probate solicitors: Dealing with a loved one’s estate after they die can be complicated and disputes can arise. We can help you with estate administration and contentious probate to ease this pressure.
