We offer you sympathetic, hands on support which we believe you will find invaluable at this most difficult time. There are many ways we can help, including:
- Assisting with registration of the death

Sometimes a deceased person does not provide appropriately for persons who should receive ongoing maintenance or support from his estate. We are experienced in advising on the complex rules which regulate these claims and in bringing and defending (as necessary) claims against estates of deceased persons.
