Planning for all stages of life

  • Expert legal guidance for all or part of the probate process

    We can help you throughout the entire process of administering a person’s estate, from the initial step of registering the person’s death through the initial grant of probate and distributing their assets. Alternatively, if you only need our help for part of the probate process (such as obtaining the grant of probate), we’re happy to assist you as much as you need.
