How Can Emmersons Probate Solicitors Help You?

At Emmersons our Expert Probate Solicitors based in Newcastle see their role as being to help you during one of the most stressful times of your life. Our aim is to remove some of the stress and worry from you and to move matters forward at a pace that suits you.

For example, in one of our cases our client lost a close family member and, as a lawyer, they assumed they would be able to handle the estate of their relative quickly and easily. This, however, was not the case. They could not bring themselves to deal with the clearance of a home that held many childhood memories and as a result, other beneficiaries were becoming frustrated.

Emmersons Specialist Probate Lawyers in Newcastle stepped in and organised our cleaning team to sort out the house and its contents. Later that week, after only three hours, the team had cleared the house of all unwanted furniture, had taken everything away in a skip and had cleaned every part of the house from top to bottom. They also provided a gardening team who presented the garden ready for potential buyers. We then appointed Estate Agents who placed the property on the market for sale a few days later; they found a buyer within a month.

We have a team of Expert Probate Solicitors in Newcastle and Sunderland who deal with Probate on a daily basis. We are frequently appointed as Executors when our clients’ make their wills. We can take over the administrative burden from you. We are used to dealing with all aspects of an estate especially if the family live in a different part of the country or overseas.

Lasting Power of Attorney


"I would like to place on record my considerable satisfaction with the way your Lawyer has dealt with the matter of my late brothers estate. I am 72 years of age and have no previous experience dealing with this kind of thing. I found your Lawyer to be excellent in explaining the various stages of the actions involved and how these fitted into the overall picture. Throughout I felt confident that I could rely on her to deal with everything as needed and to keep me in touch with how things were going. I found your Laywer to be a friendly and easy person to deal with, which is more than mere courteousness, and much valued at a difficult time in my life."
