We offer a wide range of services & can provide specialist advice in the following areas

The Family Law Specialist is Paula Day, who has practiced in this area of Law since 2001. Paula is a member of Resolution and always complies with their code of conduct by taking a conciliatory approach to matters.

We appreciate that the breakdown of a relationship is extremely distressing, and endeavour to provide a caring and supportive service whilst ensuring that the best possible outcome is achieved.

  • Cohabitation, Pre-Nuptial and Cohabitation Agreements
  • Divorce, Nullity and Dissolution of Civil Partnerships
  • Financial Claims on Separation
  • Disputes concerning Children
  • Domestic Violence and Harassment Protection

We offer a fixed fee interview service and are also prepared to carry out home visits upon request – please telephone for details.

Conveyancing

Conveyancing is handled by Sharon Sumpter. Statistics show that moving house can be one of the most stressful times in a person’s life, but our efficient hassle-free service ensures that it is the happy event it ought to be.

We deal with all aspects of Conveyancing including:

  • Sales (Freehold)
  • Transfers
  • Severance of Tenancies

All Conveyancing work is on a fixed fee basis, full details of which can be provided on request. We do not believe in ‘hidden extras’.

Wills and Probate

Our Wills and Probate Department is headed by Paula Day. We endeavour to provide sympathetic and experienced advice on the following:

  • Making and revising Wills
  • Minimising liability for Inheritance Tax
  • Administration of Estates after Death
  • Challenging Wills
  • Preparing and registering a Lasting Power of Attorney
  • Advice regarding potential Care Home Fees

Wills

A recent survey has revealed that 64% of the population do not have a current Will, the most common reason for this being that they ‘just have not got round to it’. It is essential for anyone who owns property or personal assets or, indeed, has children, to make a Will to ensure that their wishes are carried out on their death. The lack of a Will can cause additional difficulties for relatives at an already distressing time.

Our charges for making a Will are as follows:

Single Will £180.00 + VAT
Joint Wills (Husband & Wife /Cohabitees) £250.00 + VAT

The above is based on straightforward instructions and the cost may vary depending upon the complexity.

We are more than happy to offer home visits for the elderly or infirm – please contact us for details.

Probate

We have all experienced the pain of losing a loved one, and we try to draw on this when advising Clients on Probate matters. We are willing to help Executors with part or all of the administration of Estates, which can help to make a difficult and, often confusing, task easier.

Again, we are willing to offer home visits where applicable.

Employment

We understand that losing your job, particularly through no fault of your own, can be a devastating blow and can completely disrupt your life. We aim to provide clear advice as to how the Law affects you and what steps you can take to improve your situation. We are able to provide basic advice in relation to dismissal, and consider Compromise Agreements. In the event that it is necessary for you to make an application to the Employment Tribunal, we will recommend a suitable solicitor.

We appreciate that funding may be difficult and so we provide a number of options in this regard – please telephone to discuss this with a member of our team.

We understand that it is sometimes difficult for Clients to attend at our offices and are, therefore, more than willing to carry out home visits upon request.
