Wills and Probate Solicitor



I am a Wills and Probate Solicitor, working at Edwards Duthie Shamash Solicitors, one of the biggest firms in the East London/ Essex Area. I have built a solid foundation in the Private Client sector as I have worked in a number of firms and have been exposed to a variety of clientele with different needs, thus I am able to adapt these skills when taking client instructions.

Within the department we work with clients of all ages assisting them with the drafting of their Wills and Codicils. We also assist in drafting Lasting Powers of Attorney for clients to ensure there are attorneys in place in the event the individual is no longer able to deal with their own affairs. In the event an individual loses capacity, we are able to assist with obtaining a deputyship order.

We are one of the first organisations an individual contacts when one of their family members of friends passes away. Many clients do not know the next steps that must be taken after an individual has passed. We assists them with their queries and what they must do to get the ball rolling in terms of Probate. We assist in obtaining the Grant of Probate in the event they feel confident enough to deal with the administration themselves. Alternatively, we are able to deal with the full administration of an estate, meaning we are able to assist with everything up to and including distributing the estate in accordance with the Will or the Intestacy Rules.

We cover a wide range of Law in our firm and would be happy to assist with any of your legal needs and queries.
