I founded Just Wills & Legal Services in 2013 with a highly experienced group of Consultants and Partners that I had worked with for many years. We wanted to bring together people who had a passion for what they do and create the best Estate Planning business in the country.
Our founding staff, Consultants and Partners all worked with me at their previous companies. Together they have been giving advice and guidance to customers across the country for many decades.
We have helped over 100,000 clients plan their inheritance, protect their families and assets and ensure those who have lost capacity for whatever reason ensure they are properly supported.
We recognise that when it comes to writing your Will, you want a business that places you at the heart of its ethos and we are proud of our association with the Society of Will Writers which exists to protect members and clients and have previously served on its board.
Our legal document production is delivered by a highly skilled and knowledgeable team who take their high level advice from a group of STEP qualified practitioners assisting us to work to the highest possible standards, thus ensuring your documents work when you most need them. The documents are produced to the very highest standards demanded by our profession.
In 2002 I was one of the founders of The Professional Association of Legal Services (PALS) which guarantees continuity of service and I am delighted that we continue to be members of this organisation.
Just Wills & Legal Services also has a unique profit share and share option scheme dedicated to ensuring that everyone involved in the business has a part to play and shares in its success.
If you need individual advice and guidance at a fair price, you can be assured of that from one of our consultants or partners around the country.
I hope that you will find us friendly and easy to do business with – if we aren’t please let me know!
