Probate, Trusts and Wills

We can assist you with the following:

  • Wills
  • Probate and Estate Administration
  • Tax Planning
  • Trusts
  • Lasting Powers of Attorney
  • Court of Protection Work
  • Management of the Affairs of the Elderly

We at Cornfield Law LLP understand the emotions caused by the death of a loved one which can be upsetting and confusing. We can help by administering the estate in a caring and understanding way.

We can advise on the preparation of Wills and also tax planning whether during your lifetime or within the terms of a Will. A Will can in some cases be an essential element of any tax planning.

A Lasting Power of Attorney is a document which enables a person, whilst they are still mentally capable to decide who they would like to deal with their affairs if they were to become mentally incapable through illness or accident. We can answer any questions you may have in this respect.

Sadly, there are times when a person becomes mentally incapable of managing their own affairs and a Lasting Power of Attorney has not been prepared. We can help you make any necessary application to be made to the Court of Protection.
