Probate Solicitor Cambridge

Probate can be stressful and upsetting especially at a time when somebody close to you has passed away. Fortunately, you don’t need to handle the probate process alone. An introduction to a probate solicitor in Cambridge, via The Probate Network, will give you access to some free probate advice.  For either probate, or contentious probate, you can arrange a twenty minute call with a Cambridge based probate solicitor.

What can you expect from the call?

The Probate Network connects you to experts who can provide you with advice on probate-related topics, including estate administration, inheritance tax, intestacy, international probate and contentious probate. You can arrange your call online and choose a time and date that works for you. When you book we will send you a pre-call checklist which will help you ensure you’re prepared to get the most from the conversation.

The Network offers a free 20-minute consultation with a Cambridge based probate solicitor who is a member of the Law Society of England and Wales. The advice you receive will be professional and impartial, helping you decide how to proceed.

What happens after the call?

A professional probate solicitor can provide you with a clearer picture of your legal position. It will be easier for you to understand if probate is necessary and what steps to take, resulting in more confidence in navigating the process. You can also ask for a probate quote, so you are aware of the associated costs if professional support is required.

Why does the Network offer this service?

The Probate Network provides free probate advice because sometimes a little initial guidance is all someone needs at a difficult time. The Network strives to simplify probate and provide accessible guidance whenever needed to make the process as simple and straightforward as possible. We appreciate that many people decide to handle the probate the process without a solicitor and we are still happy to talk to those people. What we also find is that further down the DIY probate process, legal assistance is required and when that happens, we hope that they turn to the lawyer who was kind enough to provide some initial free advice.

The person I spoke with seemed to be very knowledgeable and made some good points. But, given the relatively simple probate application (uncontested and all documents available) the charge of 1.75% on £750k is way over the top. Substantially more than my local high street solicitor. So thanks but no thanks.

I used the 20 minute free service. The call I received was punctual and my three questions were answered fully and clearly. There was no pressure to progress to 'paid for' services. On that basis, if I do need further help with probate, I think I'd be happy to try them out.
Really really helpful at such a difficult and vulnerable time.He went through everything clearly and supportively

My appointment was scheduled and the subsequent call was on time. I had an excellent discussion with Keisha. She provided a detailed answer to my query and gave me a clear way forward.

I can't thank Lesley at Awakened Law enough for the invaluable advice she provides with regards the my late fathers estate. She was kind, sympathetic and answered all my questions.There was no 'hard sell' to employ her services, which, I have to confess, had been a concern.Thanks again to Lesley and The Probate Network.

I hate to leave negative reviews, especially as it seems everybody else has had a good experience, but I booked an online consultation and sat waiting for 20 minutes and nobody contacted me. I also submitted an online enquiry asking a question instead and never received a reply. The only contact I received was an email asking for feedback, so here it is.

I needed some advice on completing probate inheritance tax forms. I thought this may be a sales pitch but it wasn't. The guy I spoke with gave me some really useful advice which helped me to complete the all the forms which HMRC seem to be happy with. Great service, highly recommended.

Whilst I did get some useful advice this arena is more focused on selling the services of the solicitor who you meet with, and I felt the advice was not definitive because of that. My call was a WhatsApp video call which I wasn’t expecting. If you’re ready and presentable it’s probably better!

The agent was very patient in dealing with the multiplicity of detail that I supplied, and with the numerous questions that I asked. I sense that this patience caused the consultation to go beyond the allotted time, and that was especially appreciated.

Holly was fantastic. She contacted me prior to the appointment to ensure that the time was still convenient. During the consultation she was objective and informative. Excellent information, advice and guidance. The offer to answer further questions was also offered. An amazing service that really helped me when I needed it massively. Thank you and would recommend this to anyone needing support with regards to being left sorting out an estate, with or without a will. Thank you Holly

Often ‘free consultation’ means vague information and a hard sell so I was sceptical about this service. How wrong I was! They were absolutely brilliant! They listened, they gave me good advice discussing options and made sure I was clear about the legal position before finishing the call. There was no ‘sell’ and no pressure. Based on this experience they come acidosis open, transparent and honest and so, if things don’t work out, I’d be inclined to go back to The Probate Network. Superb!

Booked a 20 minute free consultation as desperate for advice - had no expectation of it actually happening or being useful but it turned out to be exactly what was promised - free, professional advice (and very useful) at the time slot I chose. Am v grateful - thanks.
