It isn't nice to think about dying, but if you want a secure future for your loved ones, it's something you have to consider.
Making a will ensures your money, property and possessions are dealt with according to your wishes after you pass away, and that the people that you most care about are looked after. So, at a very difficult time, it prevents additional distress for your family and friends.
Having a will is especially important if you have children under 18, as it will determine who cares for your children in your absence.
What’s more, with effective planning, having a will provides for your loved ones in a tax-efficient way.
Too many people either don’t have a will or have failed to use professional will writers. A poorly written will can cause as many problems as not having one at all. That’s why it’s important to get it right.
With experience of all types of wills - from simple to complex - at Optimal Solicitors, we pride ourselves on delivering a professional and personal will writing service.
And, because we know how important having the right will is to you, rather than confusing you with legal jargon, we provide the very best legal advice delivered in plain English.
So, when you appoint us, you can relax in the knowledge that your legal property needs are being taken care of.

It’s never too early to write a will
- Dying without a valid will is called intestacy. This means that your assets will be shared between your family regardless of who you want to inherit
- If you die without a valid will, your family could suffer from financial problems, disputes and emotional distress
- Without a will, your husband, wife or civil partner may not automatically inherit everything
- If you are unmarried your partner could receive little or nothing
- If you have re-married, children from any previous relationships could be financially neglected
Kind words from people like you
At Optimal Solicitors, we are here for you in your time of need. But you don’t have to take our word for it. Here’s what our clients have to say about us.
How else can we help you and your family?
Protecting what matters to you, we put you in complete control. No matter what is around the corner.
It’s vital to know your affairs are in order. Otherwise, deciding who gets what – including any trusts or charities – is open for debate. We’ll determine what the estate is worth, help draw up the will, and name an executor. Such an important document deserves your complete peace of mind.
There’s enough to cope with when a loved one passes without worrying about getting the inheritance you deserve. If you believe you’ve been wrongly left out of their final wishes, and choose to contest the will, we’ll help you understand your rights and fight your corner every step of the way.
Optimal Solicitors have wide-ranging experience in wills and probate law. This allows us to quickly define and resolve anything coming between you and a smooth inheritance. We can also resolve disputes between beneficiaries if needed.
From writing the will to applying for a grant of probate and estate administration, we’ll make sure everyone gets what they’re due and no one is left with any questions. By tackling wills and probates sensitively, we get the best outcome for everyone involved.
Without a grant of probate, you won’t have the authority to administer the estate. We make sure it’s handed to the Probate Registry in good time, so you aren’t hit with fines or more inheritance tax than you were expecting. If no one’s in place to manage the inheritance, we’ll help you through the next steps.
We’re just a phone call away...
It doesn’t matter how complex your situation is – we’re here to help. Our wills and probate solicitors cover all legal matters relating to a person’s estate. We’ll bring an objective perspective to these very personal circumstances, so you or your loved ones can be at peace.
Why Optimal Solicitors
We’ll save you money
With us at your side, a settlement will never pay more tax than it should, leaving more for the beneficiaries. That’s including any business accounts, shares, and overseas properties that are also involved. Don’t worry about hidden fees either; we’re always upfront.
We specialise in wills and probate law
We’ll handle any circumstance that may range across large families, unknown beneficiaries, or an estate tied in disputes. The rest of our legal work prepares us for this – unlike many wills and probate experts, we also specialise in property and family law.
We adapt to your requirements
It doesn’t matter how much notice you give us, or whether you’d rather talk things through at your own pace. Reach out whenever you want to; we don’t limit you with strict opening times. Chat to us by phone, email or in person. Whatever you prefer.
