Our Wills & Probate Solicitors in Cheshire & North Wales have years of legal expertise to help you with:
Preparing a robust legal document to instruct & direct how your estate and assets will be divided. A Will Writing Solicitor will help you ensure the protection of assets for a spouse, partner and children. A Will can also be used to direct instructions where you desire someone to be excluded from benefitting from the distribution of your estate’s value.
Probate & Grant of Probate
Our Probate Solicitors will administer and manage the Probate process of the process of identifying, retrieving, accessing and allocating the assets of a deceased person.
Will Disputes and Contentious Probate
Our Will Dispute Solicitors have many years’ experience dealing with the complex legal issues which can arise from contested probate and will disputes.
If you are considering contesting a will or are currently involved in any type of will dispute or contentious probate claim, then getting specialist advice from an expert Will Disputes Solicitor will enable you to progress your case with the best representation in your corner.
Living Wills & Advance Directives
An advance decision; also known as a ‘living will’, or an advance decision to refuse treatment (ADRT), are decisions you can make now, about how you might wish to be cared for in the future, i.e. you may wish to refuse a specific type of treatment at some time in the future.
We can support your future needs by creating a legally binding document that lets your family, carers and medical professionals, know and understand your wishes about refusing treatment if there comes a time when you're unable to make or communicate those decisions yourself.
Intestacy & Inheritance Act Claims (When no Will exists)
When people die without leaving a will, their estate becomes ‘intestate’ and the distribution of assets belonging to the estate must follow Intestacy Rules. This can be discussed with one our our Probate Solicitors if you would like further information.
We can represent you in court hearings if you feel you should benefit from an estate where someone has died but no Will exists to support your claim.
Court of Protection
If a relative or loved one is no longer able to take responsibility for managing their affairs, we can help you to make an application to the Court of Protection.
Inheritance Tax Planning
Inheritance tax planning helps ensure you make the most of any exemptions or reliefs, taking advantage of any recent changes in the rules, and avoiding pitfalls and minimise inheritance tax liability.
Following someone’s death, acting as a personal representative in estate administration proceedings can be one the most difficult situations to find yourself in, especially when it involves the loss of a partner or member of your family.
As well as wrestling with emotional aftermath of bereavement, for some, there may also be financial concerns (particularly where the deceased had been responsible for the majority of household income) or other pressures mounting on the family unit. At this time, people can find themselves in unfamiliar legal territory, occupied with matters they may have little or no experience with.
This is where the Wills & Probate Solicitors at PSR, can help ease the burden, provide clear advice, legal expertise and a comprehensive Estate Administration service you and your family need.

Estate Administration Key Contacts
I am the Managing Director of PSR Solicitors. After working in various law firms, both small high street firms and a larger practice in Manchester, I saw a gap in the market for a high quality practice that had the same core high street values of being personable and approachable and combining them with the efficiency and professionalism of a larger practice. PSR Solicitors was therefore established in 2009 in Shotton, Deeside with this aim. Since then PSR Solicitors has provided high quality legal services to local clients throughout North Wales and Cheshire.
I live in Chester with my young family and 2 dogs and enjoy regular holidays along the coast of North Wales.
I have recently been asked to join the board of trustees at Platform For Life, a mental health counselling charity in Chester. Good mental health is the foundation of a more fulfilled, happy and healthy life, yet many families struggle to access the help and support they need to achieve it. Platform for Life offers free local counselling and play therapy for families who would otherwise not be able to afford it.

I am now the Head of ‘Private Client’ at PSR Solicitors, based in our Shotton office. I undertake various types of legal services such as Wills and Probate, Estate Administration, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Landlord & Tenant as well as Divorce and family matters.
