Richard Welton – Wills & Probate

I specialise in helping families and individuals prepare for their future by dealing with all of the issues surrounding death and/or incapacity.

Specialising in Wills, Trusts and Probate, I’m here to make the process of preparing for the future as simple as it can be!

Whether you need to prepare a Will or Lasting Power of Attorney for yourself, or deal with the death of a loved one, I can talk you through all of your options and explain each process in a way that is easy to understand.

As a full member of STEP (the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) – the professional association for practitioners who specialise in family inheritance and succession planning – you can be sure that you are dealing with a qualified Trust and Estate Practitioner, who is recognised as a trusted advisor.

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.
