We are a small friendly law firm based in the Fleetville area of St Albans

The shockwaves from the outbreak of Covid 19 are being felt across our community. During these uncertain times we have seen a rise in people wanting to prepare or update their Wills. Our aim is to ensure we make the process as simple and stress free as possible, while always ensuring our clients receive a first-class service.


We are open to assist you. We are confident the measures we have put in place will enable our lawyers to continue to safely deliver a full range of services to our clients through telephone meetings, email or Skype. If you need to attend our office, we have social distancing practices in place.

Do you need a will?
Do you have children under the age of 18?
Do you or your partner own your own home?
Is there someone that you do not wish to inherit from your estate?
Are you concerned that your property could be used to pay for care bills?
Are you concerned that Inheritance Tax (IHT) will be payable on your estate?
Do you want Peace of Mind that all of your affairs will be taken care of after you die?

If you find that you answered yes to one or more of the questions above then it is important to make a Will.

Don’t hesitate to contact us for a quote. We understand that these are financially difficult times and therefore we are offering 15% off our fees for a Will.


When someone dies, with or without a Will, the administration of the estate can be complicated and onerous. Executors/Administrators have an obligation to administer an estate fairly, impartially, in a timely manner and in accordance with the terms of the Will or the laws of intestacy. It is prudent to obtain expert legal advice because the Executor can, in some circumstances, be held personally responsible for any loss to the beneficiaries of the estate.

We can guide you through the process of administering an estate and we offer a very reasonable fixed fee according to the value of the Estate.

Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)

It is important to make time now to focus on sorting out financial affairs, rather than leaving it to a later date. Once you lose capacity, it is too late to appoint an attorney you trust to manage your financial affairs or to make decisions in your best interest about your health and welfare. We encourage every adult, especially if over the age of 60 or with a chronic underlying health condition to immediately consider officially appointing an attorney to assist you in making decisions when you are no longer able to do so.

Family matters

You may be facing a potential family breakdown, divorce, or dispute about the children. If you answer yes to any of these questions, you are likely to benefit from legal advice.

Are there children involved?

Are you unsure what you’re entitled to?

Is violence an issue?

Do you feel emotionally unprepared to handle the negotiations yourself?

Is there likely to be disagreement over the dividing of assets?

Is your partner likely to want to move overseas or far away with your children?

Our approachable family lawyers are highly experienced in relation to property matters, child disputes, separation and divorce. And if you are worried about legal costs; don’t be. We strive to offer you a fixed fee at every stage of your family matter.
