Coronavirus Advice and Support

During the current COVID-19 coronavirus disruption we are taking sensible precautions to look after the health and safety of our team while ensuring that we are still available to meet your important legal needs.  We continue to remain open to provide coronavirus advice and support, but we will do our part to help limit the spread of the virus and its impact on our community.

Client Service and Appointments

For existing clients normal service is continuing.  Most of our team will remain working remotely and are able to answer calls and emails if you use our usual contact details.  We would ask you not to visit to the office in person and arrange to speak to the team by telephone or email instead.

For new clients we are happy to arrange appointments to help you with all your legal issues.  Our preferred option is to book appointments by telephone or using a video link and we have several options available for you so that we can include more than one party to the link and share documents if required. 

For new or existing clients who unavoidably need a face to face appointment we are still able to see you in person subject to strict precautions when you visit our offices. We can only see clients who have pre-booked as the offices are not open for public access.  We thank you for your understanding and flexibility in this challenging time.

Wills Offer – 25% Discount for NHS Staff

NHS staff working hard and putting themselves at risk for us are being advised to make sure they have a Will. We are taking 25% off our normal Will prices to say thank you. Find out more here:

Coronavirus Articles and Advice

We will continue to post News and Blog articles to update you on the latest Government advice and how it will affect businesses and individuals.  We will link these articles below to make them easy to find and we will also share them on our social media accounts.  Please visit this page regularly for advice and updates.
