For many years Jennifer Margrave Solicitors LLP has provided legal advice to older people and their families, specialising in living with dementia, wills and trusts, provision of care and asset protection.
Jennifer Margrave set up the practice in 1995 and following Jennifer’s retirement, Joanne Mason and Julie Orgill continue as the partners of the firm.
A team of legal and support staff offer a vast wealth of knowledge relating to wills and inheritance tax planning, lasting powers of attorneys, probate and trusts, asset protection and advice on funding for nursing care. We have conveyancers who can offer assistance with buying or selling property where there is no mortgage involved. Court of Protection matters are also undertaken which may include applications for deputyships when no power of attorney is in place or statutory will applications.
We also manage the affairs of those who have nobody else to do so; acting either under a power of attorney or being appointed by the Court.
We are delighted to be an accredited member of the Law Society’s Wills and Inheritance Quality Scheme (WIQS). This shows that we follow best practice procedures to meet the highest standards of technical expertise and client service in providing tailored wills and probate advice to consumers.
1) We will not pressure you into buying more complex advice that is not in your best interests.
2) Our dedicated wills and probate service is tailored to your needs. We will explain the process, options, costs and likely timescales.
3) We will keep you up-to-date using your preferred method of communication.
4) Accredited solicitors and other staff complete mandatory training on the WIQS standard and show compliance through annual re-accreditation and ongoing enforcement checks by the Law Society.
“Our firm has the expertise to help you in a caring and patient way. We take the time to make sure you understand what we can do for you.”
