Probate Services


Our probate services are backed by specialist qualifications and training from:

With over 25 years probate and estate administration experience, dealing with complex inheritance issues, We can support you through the whole probate process.

We do things differently

We do not charge a percentage of the estate or demand payment of all fees in advance, unlike some organisations. We have a range of payment options available and will help you find the one that’s right for you. You can find details about fees and disbursements here.

Our standards

We are a regulated, insured, ethical law firm. The Solicitors Code of Conduct does not permit solicitors to engage in any cold-calling activities. We do not believe such practices are appropriate or respectful and we don’t have any relationship with organisations that do use those tactics. What you will find from us is sympathetic, knowledgeable support.


Thinking of dealing with probate yourself but worried some of it could be complicated?
Try our fixed fee ‘do-it-yourself’ probate service from £1500 plus court fees and disbursements.

We sort out the technical side of getting a grant of probate leaving you to get on with administering the estate.
Our document – only service is a quick and easy way to obtain a grant of representation.

We help you to collect information about the deceased’s assets and liabilities and prepare and submit for you all the probate and tax paperwork to enable you to obtain a grant from the Probate Registry – leaving you free to deal with the rest of the estate administration.

And if you think you might need a bit of guidance as you’re going along you could try our fixed fee pre-booked telephone advice sessions or take a look at our BE My Own Lawyer membership service which has resources and on-line help for executors and trustees such as, How-To Guides to download, tips, updates on recent cases and answers to individual queries and free advice.


If you’ve never had to deal with a deceased person’s estate before it can seem daunting. That’s where our full support probate service can really help, giving reassurance from start to finish. And you needn’t worry that estate money will be sitting in our account for months on end because WE DON’T HANDLE CLIENT MONEY. We do not hold money on behalf of the deceased person’s estate. That means you’re protected from cyber-security related issues.

We can arrange everything for you including making funeral arrangements.


Unfortunately, problems can sometimes arise following the death of a relative. Disputes over inheritances are becoming increasingly more common and lay-executors can find practical difficulties that require expertise beyond their own skills.

As experienced probate practitioners we are familiar with the types of problems executors and beneficiaries encounter. We offer sensible solutions and practical help.
