Do you need a specialist?

They are among the most important decisions you will ever have to make – how to finance your later years and provide for your family when you are no longer here.  

That’s why, when it comes to seeking out legal services for older people, it’s essential to find solicitors that you can trust, who are experienced and qualified in this area of law.  

How we can help

At Wards, our Wills, Probate and Mental Capacity team are fully qualified solicitors and most have completed extra professional training in advising older and vulnerable clients on legal matters.  

This means we consider the mental and physical difficulties which can affect older and vulnerable people, and we are aware of the health and social problems that some may face.  

We always take the time to make sure your intentions are fully understood. 

What we offer: 

• Wills

• Probate

• Powers of Attorney

• Court of Protection

• Living Wills

• Tax Planning

• Protecting assets and minimising the impact of Inheritance Tax
