    If you have an accident, you should talk to a solicitor without delay. It costs nothing to talk to us, and we do not seek payment of money on account.

    If you have been involved in an accident and you engage directly with an insurance company without legal advice, you should keep in mind that calls with insurance companies are invariably recorded, insurance companies are not your friend or charities and their sole objective is to pay you as little as possible. If an insurance company is aware that you are injured, they try and offer money, sometimes without even a medical report, and of course they handle injury claims every day and have knowledge and expertise and experience, so you are at a disadvantage. Insurance companies do not want you to get legal advice, for one reason, to pay as little as possible. We say, never negotiate without your lawyer.

    If you have been the victim of an insurance company settlement, where the insurance company have chased you to settle, without the benefit of legal advice, it may not be too late to get legal advice. For example, if you had damage to your motor vehicle, you might be advised, that they can’t settle your claim for car damage until the entire claim is settled or that they can’t pay you your car damage claim until you send in a medical report, this is not correct and you should get legal advice.

    If you suffered personal injury as a minor, and the monies were not accounted for and lodged in Court, then on reaching your eighteenth birthday, you can and should re-visit the claim and seek legal advice.

    Again, it costs nothing to talk to us.

    * In contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement.

  • Probate & Wills

    Your Will is a vitally important document. It should be reviewed periodically so that it is up to date and accurately reflects your wishes. We will ensure that your Will is properly made and executed, that it meets with your requirements while minimising adverse tax implications. The transfer of assets and property (including a farm or business) from generation to generation requires careful planning and consideration. We have many years' experience of drafting Wills and advising in estate planning. Read More...

    If you have children, even if you have no property, it is advisable to do a Will, appointing Testamentary Guardians for your children who will take your place upon your death, to act as Guardians, provided the Family Court does not direct otherwise.

    If you have been appointed to administer the estate of a deceased relative or friend either as executor (where there is a Will) or as administrator (where there is no Will) it can be a stressful experience. We will guide you through the process giving you the best advice possible with compassion and expertise. We have the necessary experience and expertise to enable us to handle estates effectively involving complex family situations. Please see this Information Sheet for Administrators / Executors for more information. Information Document Download
