Probate Solicitor Leicester

Dealing with the passing of a loved one can be an emotionally taxing experience, especially when coupled with the legal proceedings involved in probate. The Probate Network offers a solution by connecting individuals with knowledgeable and empathetic probate solicitors or practitioners in Leicester who are willing to provide free probate advice. The goal of The Probate Network is to simplify the probate process and provide a clear plan of action by introducing individuals to solicitors or practitioners who can provide some initial guidance based on their specific circumstances.

When contacting The Probate Network, individuals can expect to be put in touch with a reliable and compassionate probate solicitor or practitioner in Leicester who will offer initial free probate advice through a 20-minute telephone consultation. All our probate specialists are regulated by either the SRAICAEW or CLC. The call will not be a sales pitch. The call will provide you with genuine and helpful advice that can assist in planning your next steps to manage the probate process. During the consultation, individuals can discuss various probate-related matters such as;

If further assistance is required, individuals can also request a probate quote during the consultation or through an online form at a later time. The Probate Network stands out from other services as not all solicitors offer free advice. By connecting individuals with probate solicitors or practitioners in Leicester who are willing to provide free probate advice, individuals can determine if the solicitor or practitioner is someone they can work with should they need further advice in the future.

After the consultation, individuals will have a better understanding of their legal position and can decide if they require the support of a probate solicitor or practitioner. If necessary, individuals can request assistance from the probate solicitor or practitioner for specific elements of the probate process, such as calculating inheritance tax and exemptions, which can be complex and challenging to navigate. The probate solicitor or practitioner can also assist with applying for the grant of probate or letters of administration and help with estate administration and distribution.

Contentious Probate

If the consultation pertains to contentious probate, individuals can gain insight into whether they have grounds to contest and the likelihood of success, as well as an estimate of the legal costs involved.

The 20-minute consultation offers individuals the opportunity to gain a clear understanding of their legal position, and the probate solicitors and practitioners are there to offer ongoing support and guidance throughout the probate process.

Why we offer this service

The Probate Network was launched to provide people needing probate advice with an option to talk to a local probate solicitor or practitioner (for free) to ask some initial questions. The Probate Network was launched following the Founders experience of trying to find a solicitor or practitioner that would answer the question “Is Probate Required?” The response of local solicitors was to only agree to answer the question if an official appointment was booked which would cost hundreds of pounds. In this instance it would have cost hundreds of pounds to be told, that probate wasn’t required.

The free advice we offer is genuine

Upon completing the complimentary consultation, individuals may come to the realisation that they have the ability to complete the necessary paperwork and navigate the probate process without the assistance of a professional. However, it is also possible that they may require the aid of an expert in this field. Regardless of the outcome, the 20-minute consultation provides three critical pieces of information.

Firstly, it provides an initial assessment of the individual’s unique needs, based on their specific circumstances. This assessment is crucial in determining the most effective course of action for navigating the probate process.

Secondly, the consultation can result in an estimate of the potential costs associated with professional probate assistance. This information allows individuals to make an informed decision about whether or not they wish to pursue professional help.

Lastly, the consultation gives individuals the opportunity to evaluate their comfort level with the lawyer or practitioner on the other end of the phone should they need further support. Probate can be an emotionally taxing experience, and it is essential to have a professional who can provide guidance and support, while also establishing a rapport with the client.

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 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.
