Hours to suit you

We appreciate that your time is valuable, and for this reason, we are happy to offer consultations by telephone, skype, or email, to suit your needs.

You can also start the process of your Wills consultation by engaging in our interactive form online.  Initially you will be asked a series of questions about your situation and asked to nominate matters you wish to specifically address.  The second stage of our interactive form will ask you detailed questions regarding your current circumstances.  Those instructions will then be provided in summary to our lawyers, to ensure that your first meeting with them is meaningful.

You will not be charged for using our online form.
