Where young children are involved, we will assist you in appointing guardians to take on parental responsibility should you no longer be able to.
Through effective planning, we maximise your inheritance tax allowances. We also protect assets against future events such as long-term care or re-marriage, as well as protecting assets for young and vulnerable beneficiaries.

“Although we had no face-to-face contact we built up a good relationship with Will Harper who we dealt with exclusively. He answered the phone personally and promptly and replied to emails usually the same day.”
“The practice has recently dealt with my late mother-in-law’s estate, probate, deed of variation and associated house sale. Despite covid, this went very smoothly with no issues and was carried out speedily.”
“This is a very professional company. Came to use them for my mother’s will on her passing and had the pleasure of Amelia Gale dealing with everything. She made the experience a lot less stressful and was always there to help on any issues. In fact so impressed, they have done our wills and powers of attorney and again fully explained everything. Well worth paying that bit extra for a quality service.”
“I have used Flint Bishop’s services on several occasions for various issues. My contact there, Shirley Illston, over the last 24 years has helped me in difficult times, when I needed good legal advice quickly. I would recommend their services for any legal assistance you require without hesitation.”
“Excellent service, have recommended you to friends.”
“Very impressed with the response I received from start to finish.”
“Very professional and efficient and went way beyond our expectations.”
