Wills and Probate Lawyers
Wills & Probate lawyers can help you to prepare for later life and also to provide for your family when you die. Our private client law team is here to help you to get your financial affairs in order, which might involve making a will so that your partner, children and other relations are provided for in the event of your death. On the other hand, you might be after advice to ensure that you can afford the costs of residential care in your old age or you might want to find out how to manage your property and your estate if it is valued above the inheritance tax threshold.<
Having a private client lawyer can also help when things go wrong with wills, intestacy and the administration of estates. Our lawyers are able to take on contentious private client law cases where the a family member has died without making a will, or where a will has been made but where there might be disagreements over the provisions in the will or some elements of ambiguity or uncertainty. There may also be if you believe that your relative did not have their full mental capacity at the time they were drafting their will or if they were unduly influenced by another person.

The professional expertise of a private client lawyer can help you to avoid many of the problems commonly encountered by people when dealing with this area of law without the benefit of professional legal advice. Particularly common issues our private client lawyers come across can include problems in a will that may make it invalid or that may cause unexpected problems if family members have been left out unintentionally.
