The process of probate can be both time consuming and complex. We are here to support and guide you through the tasks ahead when a person dies, with a professional, sensitive and compassionate service.

We can take care of everything for you. Our experienced Private client team provide a sensitive and professional service. Leaving you to support your family members through this difficult time.

  • Information gathering and notification

  • Applying for a Grant of Probate or Grant of Representation (a Letter of Administration)

  • Dealing with the Probate Registry and HMRC
