Our team at Crane & Staples can help you with the legal processes of protecting your property and possessions during your lifetime and, as far as possible after you die.
Knowing and understanding your personal circumstances and wishes is our emphasis, and we will make sure that our advice will accurately reflect your wishes and is tailored to your personal circumstances.
The areas of wills, trusts and probate is a broad area and can be complex. We are an extremely experienced and highly qualified team of lawyers who have additional specialist qualifications with Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE).
Our advice covers everything from will writing, powers of attorney and tax planning to disposal of business interests. We appreciate that many of these subjects are difficult to talk about but you’ll find us easy to talk to and you are welcome to do so at our offices or in the comfort of your own home.
As professionally qualified lawyers, we are regulated and protected, giving you peace of mind.
