Our main areas of work are wills, administration of estates (both where there is a will and where
there is none), Lasting Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection applications. Our staff appreciate
that all these matters can be emotionally difficult and that more is involved than merely advising on
the law. We are experienced in looking after those who have been bereaved and those who are
living with dementia or caring for people with dementia. Two of our solicitors, Zoe Mellen and Amy
Holliday, are ‘Dementia Friends’.

We strongly advise every adult to make a will and to review it should their circumstances change.
We are members of the National Free Wills Network, The Cancer Research UK Free Will Service and
we have supported Will Aid for many years.

We recommend that clients consider entering into a Lasting Power of Attorney appointing people
they trust to deal with their affairs in the event that they lose their mental capacity. To find out
