Wills and Probate

Advice and Assistance from Cohen Cramer Solicitors

Without professional advice you may find that what you spent your life building up does not pass to those you care about.  It is vital therefore to make sure you have expert advice in making your will  or putting your property into a trust. Cohen Cramer can give you all the help and advice that you need.

Whether someone dies with or without a will, dealing with their affairs can be stressful, confusing and time consuming.  We can take that stress from you.  From obtaining a Grant of Probate on your behalf to acting as executor and administering the estate, our team offers a sensitive but professional and efficient service, taking that burden from you.

Powers of Attorney

Life can be unpredictable.  This is why you should have a Lasting Power of Attorney in place so that if you become unable to make decisions for yourself, there is someone, chosen by you, who can.  Our team of specialist advisors can help you put a contingency plan into place.

If you were to lose capacity without a Lasting Power of Attorney nobody could make decisions for you without an application to the Court of Protection for a Deputyship Order.  This application is costly and time consuming.  An existing Lasting Power of Attorney would prevent the need for a Deputyship Order however if it is too late for a Lasting Power or Attorney we can advise you on the Deputyship Application

Will, Estate and Trust Disputes

Unfortunately sometimes disputes can arise following a death.  The experts at Cohen Cramer are here to advise you on how best to achieve the outcome that you would like, whether that is in relation to contesting the validity of a will, challenging how an executor is dealing with an estate, or claiming more from the estate if you have not been left reasonable financial provision.

Whilst we will fight your corner we are also aware that when disputes arise after a death it is often about more than just finances, there are relationships to consider. We have the experience and understanding to know what sort of approach to take in resolving your disputes in the best way.
