Elderly client services

  • Wills
  • Lasting Powers of Attorney
  • Nursing home fees and contracts and long-term care
  • Selling your home or ways to stay in your home
  • Estate & Inheritance Tax planning
  • Gifts and Trusts

If you’re seeking help on any of these matters, our solicitors for Helmsley who are members of The Association of Lifetime Lawyers (formerly known as Solicitors for the Elderly), are Beth Worthy and Emma Silkstone.

Family and divorce law

If you’re looking to discuss any of these family law matters, our solicitors can help:

  • Separation and divorce
  • Financial settlements
  • Property rights
  • Arrangements for children
  • Cohabitation
  • Pre-nuptial agreements, post-nuptial agreements and separation agreements
  • Public Law Children Proceedings
  • Domestic violence


The importance of creating a Will should not be overlooked. It’s imperative to ensure your loved ones are provided for and prepared for what is to happen in the event of your death. Our specialist Will solicitors will help you create a clear and concise Will of your final wishes, to ensure your estate is properly taken care of.

If you’re concerned about a loved one’s Will, or you’re not sure a Will has been dealt with correctly, we can help you challenge a Will.


It’s never easy losing a loved one. As an appointed Executor or the deceased’s close relative, it’s your responsibility to deal with the rest of the estate - either according to the Will or the Rules of Intestacy (if the deceased did not leave a Will). The period of grieving during a bereavement is challenging to say the least.

Our probate solicitors can help you by providing you with as much or as little support as you need – from obtaining the Grant of Probate (if there is a Will) or Letters of Representation (if there is no Will), to paying Inheritance Tax and distributing inheritance to the beneficiaries.

Power of Attorney

Our solicitors are well equipped to help make a loved one your Lasting Power of Attorney to help with difficult decisions for you in case you lose the ability to do so yourself in the future.
