1 Weston-super-mare Wills, Probate & Mental Capacity your local legal specialists

2 It can be hard to plan for every eventuality. Taking some time to have a Will drawn-up or reviewing plans for wealth management or support in later years could bring real peace of mind. Writing a Will A correctly drawn-up and regularly reviewed Will is an inexpensive way of putting you in control of the final destination of your financial assets and making sure you avoid difficulties and disputes after your death. With a professionally drawn Will you take control. You can: choose your executors, choose your guardians, express your funeral wishes, benefit who you want to benefit, protect children of one relationship from a new relationship, avoid disinheriting loved ones, protect special needs beneficiaries, lower your Inheritance Tax bill and shelter assets from assessment by the Local Authority or DWP. Wealth planning We can protect funds from the taxman and help protect vulnerable beneficiaries. This may include organising lifetime gifts or setting up trusts.
