Legal services for your family

For most of us, nothing matters more than family, so we understand the importance of doing our best to safeguard their future welfare and financial security.

We also know how important it can be to anticipate and avoid potential family conflicts and, when such conflicts arise, how crucial it can be to resolve these sensitively, cost-effectively and (where possible) amicably in order to give the people and relationships involved the best possible chance to recover and move forward.

To that end, we offer dedicated advice and support in relation to the full spectrum of family matters, from Probate, estate administration and Lasting Powers of Attorney, to co-habitation agreements, pre-nuptial agreements and complex divorces.


We can help you to anticipate, understand and manage the potential issues that could arise in relation to your status as a cohabiting partner, then draft a cohabitation agreement setting out your wishes and intentions.

Pre & Post Nuptial Agreements

A clearly set out, fair agreement that accurately captures your intentions and protects your personal assets can save a great deal of stress and heartache at a later date.

Divorce & Dissolution

During this difficult time, we will guide you sensitively and expertly through your separation or divorce, and help you to negotiate a compromise that protects your interests and priorities.

Lasting Powers of Attorney

Clearly and precisely drafted Property and Financial Affairs LPAs and Personal Welfare LPAs will enable loved ones to care for you and your affairs as you would wish, should you lose the ability to do so yourself.

Court of Protection & Deputyships

We can act as a deputy on behalf of someone who lacks capacity, or guide you through the process of applying to the Court of Protection to become a deputy yourself, then assist with the ongoing administration involved.

Probate & Estate

We will guide you through the Probate process with patience and sensitivity, helping you to negotiate the complex rules and procedures involved in administering an estate, to ensure that the process runs as smoothly as possible.


We can advise on the validity of a Will, establish whether the correct processes have been followed during the Probate process, and help you to understand and enforce any rights you might have to a portion of the deceased’s estate.
