Our specialist probate lawyers are here to help you during this difficult time

Probate & Estate Administration

If a family member or friend has died we can assist you with probate and help administer the estate. We can do as much or as little as you want. We realise that this is a very difficult time and you will have many unanswered questions, so you may find it helpful to come and talk things through with one of our specialist lawyers.

If someone has died without a Will then we can advise and guide you through the maze of intestate administration.

In addition to administering the estate there are ways in which we might help improve the way the estate is held in order to protect the beneficiaries and ways in which we can help save tax.

If there are issues between beneficiaries, questions about the validity of a Will or people left out then our specialist Will Dispute and Contentious Probate team can help resolve these problems.
