Wills and Inheritance

At Martin Shepherd our Wills & Probate Team advise on all issues relating to wills and the administration of a deceased person’s estate. We fully understand that dealing with the death of relative or loved one is difficult enough without having to address the legal issues relating to the assets and debts involved, inheritance tax, capital gains tax and income tax. We seek to remove much of the pressure from you and enable an estate to be administered as quickly efficiently and stress free as possible.
