Specialist legal advice on dealing with the administration of winding up an estate

Specialist legal advice on dealing with the administration of winding up an estate of a deceased friend or relative.  The death of a friend or family member can be an extremely traumatic experience and it can be difficult to cope with the administrative task of winding up an estate at such an emotional time.

Our team of legal advisors in Inverness and Highlands can make the process as simple and straightforward as possible, helping to ease the burden on family members and friends. Our Highlands team is based in Inverness with an additional office in Thurso and we act for clients throughout the Highlands, including Thurso, Caithness, Moray, Nairn, Ross-shire, Skye, Stornoway, Sutherland and Orkney.

Why should you use a solicitor in winding up an estate?
