Wills and Probate

Taking control of what happens in the event of your death or incapacity isn’t the easiest thing to think about...

Lasting Powers of Attorney

Having a Lasting Power of Attorney gives you peace of mind that you and your affairs will be looked after...

Elderly and Vulnerable Client Services

Your older years should be a time of enjoyment but often they are affected by physical challenge, financial and legal...

I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation of the way you handled the re-drafting of my will which, as I think you appreciate, was rather a difficult process for me. I commend your professionalism and understanding, and was pleased that we were able to bring even a little humour into the situation.

I will certainly recommend your services to others, and will not hesitate to contact you again in the future as the need arises.

On behalf of my wife and myself may I say how delighted we have been with the service we have received from you in the matter of preparing Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney for us both.

We received a “flyer” (from our daughter) explaining the services provided by your firm and from the time that I sent you an email expressing an interest in this service you have been:

Extremely prompt and efficient in all your dealings with us;

Most courteous and patient in explaining the details of both Wills and P.O.A.’s;

Very clear and open in dealing with the matter of your charges and the other costs involved.

We will have no hesitation in dealing with your firm again if we should have need, and of recommending you to others.

Overall we would wish to thank you personally for all your help, and would also mention that when we have had occasion to deal with other members of your firm they have also been most helpful.

We updated our wills with Lavanya from the Leatherhead office. Lavanya made what could have been a difficult process, very easy for us, and completed it in the short timeframes that we requested. The explanations of the “legalese” were all very clear, making us confident that our wills reflected our wishes, and Lavanya was extremely helpful and personable throughout. We’d highly recommend her and Howell Jones more broadly.

We have been clients of Howell Jones Solicitors for a number of years. Most recently we have been dealing with Mrs Lavanya Hart on a regular basis.

Not only is Lavanya extremely knowledgeable and professional in her work , she is also very patient, and always willing to explain in layman’s terms, any questions we put to her.

Lavanya’s pleasant and approachable personality have made our visits to her office most enjoyable despite discussing morbid topics!

We would not hesitate to recommend Howell Jones Solicitors to our friends and family.

It was a pleasure to meet you in person today. You were so welcoming and cheery, as well as being very helpful and professional throughout. We wouldn’t hesitate to use your services again and would heartily recommend you to others.

My wife and I have recently felt it necessary to rewrite our wills and as we have used your company in the past, we felt that it was right to ask you to assist us.

From the outset, it was easy to obtain an early appointment and we were introduced to Lavanya Hart, who has seen us through to its conclusion. Lavanya was particularly friendly and was most helpful in explaining some of the ramifications and the legal jargon. Everything was undertaken very quickly and but for a few minor amendments, which were necessary, the wills were drawn up and these were signed in your offices on the 13th July.

May we say that we would not hesitate to recommend your company and in particular Lavanya, to our friends, if they needed the assistance of a solicitor in making a will. We are pleased that we stayed with the company we knew, although we were aware that we could have obtained the services elsewhere for a lower cost.

I needed to rewrite my will in order to secure a safe future for my family and I returned to Howell Jones as they had acted for me before both in selling and buying property and helping me with the first will I wrote approximately 20 years ago. I hoped that this time Howell Jones would be able to help and yet again I was delighted with the help and support they provided. I highly recommend Lavanya Hart who drew up my will on this occasion. She was an exceptional listener who let me talk through my concerns and supported me with what I hoped to achieve. I now have precisely the will I need and I am so grateful to Lavanya for her professionalism and kindness.
