Wills & Probate

Taking expert legal advice on Wills & Probate can be helpful in most cases – and essential in some cases.


Drafting a Will allows you to have control over how your money and possessions are distributed, providing peace of mind for the future. A Will can give you the reassurance you need and help you prepare for the future of your loved ones.

Probate Applications

Probate is the process of confirming who has authority to administer the estate of the person who has died. Probate can apply whether the deceased made a Will or not.

Why come to us?

Our solicitors are approachable and sympathetic and can help to relieve clients of the stress of worrying about their loved one’s wishes at what is already a distressing time.

You may need a Solicitor if you are facing legal issues or require legal advice.  Whether it is for personal matters like family law, property, immigration or business – related concerns, seeking legal advice can provide clarity and guidance.

Costs vary depending on the complexity of the case, the Solicitor’s experience, and the services required.  At Portway Solicitor’s, we offer free initial consultations.  At the consultation, we will explain our fee structures (hourly rates, fixed fees, etc.) to help you understand potential costs should you wish to instruct us.

Typically, the first meeting involves discussing your situation, exploring potential legal options, understanding costs and timelines and outlining the next steps.

Your Solicitor will typically require details related to your case, including documentation, relevant dates, names of involved parties, and any other pertinent information to help them understand your situation better.

Many legal matters can be resolved through negotiation, mediation, or alternative dispute resolution methods without going to court. A Solicitor can advise you on the best approach for your situation.

The duration varies based on the nature of the case, legal procedures involved, and other factors. A Solicitor can provide an estimated timeline after assessing your case.
