Wills & Probate

It is important to make a will in order to ensure that your assets and affairs are distributed as you wish upon death. For married couples with young children a will is also important to appoint suitable guardians for the children of a couple. Wills can be straightforward or more complicated depending on a person’s particular circumstances. For example it may be necessary to advise on matters such as the differences between Intestate and Testate Law, the different shares that arise in a particular estate or a spouse’s right to a legal right share. We provide practical, guided and quality legal advice in this area.
