Nisita Vadher – We found NJ legal services online when we were searching for a solicitor to write out a will for my parents. I received a call back within a couple of hours of requesting this service. Nigel was incredibly helpful and explained the procedure in great detail. We were unsure of how this process worked and he had made sure to break down the process for us making it very simple and easy to understand. All of our questions were answered for us and the process took no longer than 1 hour! We are incredibly happy with the service that we have received and will definitely be recommending NJ Legal services to all our family and friends. Thank you very much Nigel.

Mrs V Billing – Nigel Johnson is the most professional and helpful friendly solicitor I have ever had the privilege too speak with. We have been in contact by phone and letters over the last few weeks sorting out my husband and my wills etc. If you have any queries he is just a phone call away and has a lot of patience, explaining things thoroughly. Excellent service highly recommended.

We provide advice on what Will is best suited for you and we take care of the full process and paperwork.

Lasting Power of Attorney

If someone looses the capacity to make their own decisions, a Lasting Power of Attorney can appoint an individual to take care of finances or a that person’s health and welfare.

We can guide you through the process from start to finish and prepare all documents needed.

Probate Matters

Probate, or Grant of Probate is the legal process when someone with a Will passes away. This process ensures that any money or inheritance goes to that stipulated in the Will.

We can advise you on how to apply for Probate, or complete the applications for you.

Disabled Trusts
