In an uncertain world it is increasingly important to have all your affairs in order, here at Murray Hills Solicitors we can help you make a Will, to make practical arrangements and ensure your wealth passes to those you want it to and not those you don’t. A Will is the best way to ensure your family and loved ones are properly provided for, appoint who you want to look after your children, vulnerable loved ones and pets. With a Will in place you can relax safe in the knowledge that your wishes will be carried out and a carefully drafted Will can also minimise the amount of inheritance tax payable on your death. Murray Hills Solicitors will be happy to discuss your personal circumstances with you and draft your Will. Our specialist Will team provide an efficient and competitively priced service.
Our Private Client Department is experienced in delivering high quality work in all matters relating to wills and estate administration and there are currently two lawyers within the department who may work on your matter. Regardless of who works on your matter, they will be supervised by Alexandria Sarah Cartledge who heads up the department.
