Apart from being friendly, approachable and professional:

  • Free initial Probate Advice – do you actually need help?  After that, you can book paid help for a minimum of 15 minutes – as much or as little as you need, charged by the minute, not solicitors 6 minute units!
  • Most times you get straight through to the person handling your case.
  • Modest Hourly Rates.  A fraction of those charged by Banks and substantially less than most high street solicitors.
  • No need to take time off work to visit us.
  • No responsibility allowances to unexpectedly triple the bill.
  • We don’t charge for 6 minutes for a 30 second phone call, nor do we charge £45 each for letters produced at the touch of a button.
  • Barrister in house for those trick cases, plus an ex Independent Financial Adviser to speed dealing with investments which many firms don’t understand.
  • Our use of technology saves you money.
  • We welcome you doing part of the work.
  • We’re happy to act in support of family executors.
  • All client money is kept in separate individual trustee client accounts with Barclays Bank, it is never mixed with our money or anyone elses.
  • We understand Deeds of Variation which may be used to change a Will or Intestacy (no Will) after death if the relevant people agree.  This can save a fortune in second generation tax. Many firms don’t seem to understand them.
  • We understand Trusts and there uses, which can save tax and protect beneficiaries from exploitation.
  • We have a former accountant as an in house consultant.
  • We’re pretty good at resolving family disputes without expensive Court action.
  • Inheritance Tax and Trust Planning is a speciality – we’ve written a book on Inheritance Tax.
  • We offer a substantial discount for advance/ monthly payment of fees.
  • We don’t spend your money on expensive offices when most clients use phones or email – we want to impress you with our efficiency, not our palatial offices.
  • For full service clients, we will dedicate a memorial tree in our Grove to the deceased to help improve the environment.  Family and friends are welcome to join in and plant more.
  • We actually care about the people involved.  Probably the most important reason of all.

and we add a tree to the forest in memory of your loved one too.
