Laura Ruffell – Wills & Probate Solicitor

Wills and Probate SolicitorI am a Private Client Solicitor specialising in Wills and LPAs (Lasting Power of Attorney).

I’m sure you’ll agree that planning for the future can be daunting – especially when it comes to issues surrounding death and incapacity.

That’s why I always give friendly, clear and practical advice to all my clients – including those who are elderly or vulnerable.

I understand that everybody’s circumstances are different, so any advice I give will always be personal and tailored to you.

Whether you need help to prepare a Will or Lasting Power of Attorney, or want to plan for Inheritance Tax, I will make things as simple and stress-free as possible. That’s my promise to you!

Personal and tailored advice

Clients tell me I have a very sympathetic ear and I pride myself in my ability to deal with often delicate matters in a professional way. So whether you wish to discuss providing for a surviving partner whilst protecting the interests of your children, or would like to ensure your affairs are looked after if you lose the ability to do so yourself, please do get in touch.

Outside the Office

I like to keep fit by playing netball and going to the gym or swimming, which is just as well as I also love going out for dinner and cooking for family and friends.

Like most of us I’m sure, I also love going on holiday and often indulge in a spot of DIY at home!

Brenda King - SecretaryBrenda King

I first joined the firm as a temp for 3 weeks in 2006, loved the atmosphere, enjoyed the work and wanted to work here permanently. At that time, there were no vacancies but in 2007 a permanent position arose to work for Robin Burnett.

We are a friendly firm and I love interacting with clients and beneficiaries. A lot of my job is supporting clients, for example if we’re looking after a Probate, by making sure that they feel comfortable about what the legal process is at a very distressing time.

We’re all really aware of the people behind the actual legal work we’re doing, so the work, although sometimes sad, is always interesting.
