Specialist Probate Solicitors

When a person dies, someone needs to take care of the things they’ve left behind. It’s a legal process called probate, and it involves distributing assets and settling debts.

At Judge & Priestley we have a team of specialist probate solicitors, based in Bromley, who guide family members, friends, executors and administrators through the decisions that need to be made and the steps that need to be taken. We’re sensitive to circumstances. We know just how difficult this is. But our experience as lawyers, and our empathy as people, makes the process as smooth and straightforward as it can be.

We handle cases ranging from large estates with complex property, financial and family issues, to the modest assets of people who have died with few loved ones around them. There is often a Will, and that helps determine how the estate should be administered. But sometimes there isn’t, and that leads to a different procedure governed by the law of intestacy.

In each scenario there are strict legal rules to follow and court applications to be made. Our lawyers are skilled in the law, in the processes and in the practicalities and sensitivities of dividing assets and meeting tax and other liabilities. Clients tell us that our support made everything far easier than they expected it to be.

If you require advice or action on a probate matter, please call our office on 020 8290 7354 to talk to one of our private client team.
