Wills, Probate and Trusts
We are currently not taking on any new Wills & Probate clients due to staff changes. We apologise for the inconvenience and hope to be taking on new clients very soon. Please continue to check out our website for future updates. Thank you.
For many of us, thinking about the future can be daunting. WMB Law understands that lifetime planning, although crucial, means tackling difficult subjects, including making provision for yourself in later years or for your dependents after you have died.
Our Shropshire solicitors offer a sensitive, caring and comprehensive service, no matter how large or small your estate. There can be cases where the estate has substantial assets, in which case – with careful forward planning and investments – possible tax advantages can be explored.
Everyone should make a Will, properly drafted and witnessed. A Will is your statement of intentions, a testament for the future. With transparent costs and friendly, clear advice, letting WMB Law assess your circumstances and prepare your Will is an affordable and stress-free experience. We can also store your Will safely and securely for up to five years at no additional charge.
Having your Will written professionally can cost a little more than the do-it-yourself Wills you may have heard about, but with that higher cost comes peace of mind. You need a document that has been professionally arranged to ensure that your wishes cannot be contested.
At WMB Law, we understand that dealing with the affairs of a loved one following their death can be a hugely difficult time. Our experienced team will take the time to explain the procedure of obtaining a Grant of Representation from the Probate Registry, and administering the estate.
The Grant gives the people named in it the legal authority to deal with the deceased person’s financial affairs, and we will advise and support to the benefit of those who will eventually inherit.
A properly drawn-up trust agreement is commonly needed to reduce estate tax liability, to protect property, avoid probate or where a beneficiary is not able to looks after assets themselves due to age or mental incapacity.
WMB Law can create a trust for you with the unique needs of the person/s in mind. With our expert solicitors, trustees benefit from straightforward, practical advice as well as an approachable, reliable service.
We are experienced in all the following fields:
- Contentious trusts and probate
- Drafting / making a Will or changing a Will

- Grants of Probate
