Why Make a Will?

It's easy to put off making a will. However, if you die without one your assets may be distributed according to the law rather than your wishes. If you are not married then your parents or siblings could inherit rather than your cohabitee.

If you have children from a previous relationship you should determine how much of your estate they should receive.

You should plan ahead to avoid paying more Inheritance Tax than is necessary.

DIY wills can lead to many problems. We have successfully challenged a number of these on behalf of relatives who were not included.

If you have been diagnosed with a serious illness, or you are in the early stages of Dementia or Alzheimers you should make a will.

If you are separating or divorcing or if you have just had a baby you should consider making a will.

We can visit you or your relative at Home, Hospital, Care Home or Hospice.

"I was blown away by your integrity for all the hard work you did on my behalf. I am very grateful for all of your effort and guidance you showed me. Your professionalism was 10 out of 10."

"Overall very happy with the appointment and the service provided. Everything was explained very well in simple terms which both myself and my elderly Aunt could understand. I was impressed as Laura took into account that my Aunt was hard of hearing so ensured she took her time in explaining everything so that it was understood. I thought the office was very professional and friendly."
Ms S

"From the very start I was made to feel very welcome and relaxed. I was anxious about the appointment and especially so as I was brining my husband who has dementia. I found that everyone was professional. The face to face contact in the appointment and the friendly manner ensured that a difficult process was made easier. I received all relevant information which helped me make an informed choice about which route to go down. They did not push me to make a particular choice, I was able to go away and discuss the information with my family to make the choice that was best for me. If I ever need a solicitor I would not hesitate to use Emmersons Solicitors again."
