Our friendly and knowledgeable Wills and Probate team have almost 70 years combined experience guiding and advising clients on Wills, Probate, Estate Administration, Intestacy, Deeds of Variation, Care of the Elderly, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Court of Protection/Deputyship Orders and Trusts.

With four offices in Burton Upon Trent, Derby, Swadlincote and Ashby de la Zouch, we aim to provide an excellent service in every area of expertise. We can also organise home visits too if getting into the office is difficult.

Individually Tailored

We tailor our work to meet your individual requirements and have a professional, yet approachable, team of qualified Solicitors, Legal Executives and Support Staff. Each year we draft hundreds of Wills so that you can decide who will benefit from the wealth you leave behind.

Without a Will, the law decides who will benefit and it might not be the people you choose. You may also pay more in tax than you need to – not many of us are willing to pay tax at 40% on our Estates but without proper planning that can happen.

Our Wills and Probate team are all Dementia Friends with four of team Dementia ‘Champions’.
