Probate & Wills

At Hodge Halsall our specialist private client Solicitors have advised and assisted thousands of elderly clients and their families to sort out those often difficult matters about their assets and financial affairs.

Life is more complex today than it has ever been with common-law relationships, step-families, business interests, investments and second and foreign properties.  Marriage, separation or divorce, buying a property and other major life events may all impact on the assets you own and how you want your estate to be distributed after your death.  

We appreciate that every client is unique – which is why we encourage face to face meetings to understand your specific needs.  Our Solicitors can help ensure that the assets you have carefully accumulated are best preserved, protected and passed on in the way you intend.

Our Solicitors have expertise in the entire life cycle of private client work.  We can help with:-

  • Lifetime Planning – to include drafting your Will in the most tax efficient manner for your circumstances
  • Attorney and Deputyship – completion for Lasting Powers of Attorney or Application for Court of Protection for Deputyship Order
  • Administration – assistance with all aspects of managing an Estate and Application for Grant of Probate
  • Disputes – dealing with legal disputes relating to a Will or an Estate

We will talk to you in plain English and find the best outcome for you and your family. Whether your matter is straight forward or complex, you have the right team behind you. Please contact our Private Client team to discuss your requirements further.
