We are delighted to confirm that Michael Coleman is joining the firm as a consultant solicitor from January 2018.
Michael is a highly experienced wills and probate lawyer and deals with all aspects of private client work. Making and updating a will is something that is so important for people and regrettably it is frequently overlooked.
Michael will be a great addition to the team and this will mean that we can provide a comprehensive family service in house to both new and existing clients.
We have noticed in the Law Gazette an announcement that money is going to be made available to the courts. Many of you using the court service will be aware of the numerous court closures and people potentially having to travel quite a distance to have their case heard.
When you do get to the court often the building are in a terrible state and do not inspire the confidence of clients or advocates.
Some people choose to bypass the process by opting for arbitration where the venue is chosen by the parties however for those clients and us as practitioners who have to use the court buildings this news is welcome and overdue. Whether these funds are sufficient remains to be seen.
