OUR BACKGROUND

Why choose us?

Our company began in 2009 and has successfully provided legal services for many clients, both private and commercial. In 2013, our company changed its name to Powell Legal Consultancy Limited, when Elizabeth Powell joined the company as a Director to take it in a new direction specialising in Wills and Powers of Attorney.
  • We are Professionals

    You do not need to visit a solicitor to make a Will*.  Our practice leader, Elizabeth Powell is a legally qualified Will Writer and holds not only a degree in law (LLB(Hons)) but a Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice as well.  These are the same qualifications in law as those held by the average solicitor you will find in a typical high street law firm.  However, our fees are much lower than those charged by a firm of solicitors.

  • We are Regulated by The Society of Will Writers

    We are also regulated by The Society of Will Writers, who seek to provide a similar assurance in the quality of service provided by its members as you would expect from any other legal services provider.  We are proud to have been awarded the higher level of membership ‘Fellow of the Society’  which reflects our level of skills and experience.

  • We are Qualified Will Writers

    Many Will Writers and the staff in Will Writing companies do not hold qualifications in law. Some only undertake a short course in the basic principles of this area of law before they hold themselves out to be ‘experts’ in this field. It is preferable to seek advice from someone who is qualified because when taking instructions for a Will, other areas of law may be touched upon and knowledge of something that could affect your circumstances as a whole can be very useful and sometimes crucial to the process.

  • We are Experienced in this Area of Work

    We also have extensive knowledge and experience gained in a busy legal environment. Our staff have worked in solicitor’s firms over many years increasing their skill and expertise in this area and other areas of law.

  • We Provide a Tailored Service

    We strive to be flexible, so that you can access our help and skills during the working day and outside regular office hours, to make a Will completely tailored to your needs, rather than a one-size-fits-all service.

  • We Deliver a Personal Experience

    From the point of first contact with us, you will receive a friendly, efficient service. You can arrange an appointment at a time and place that suits you. We often visit our clients at home but if this is not convenient, then we can arrange a meeting at our offices or speak to you on the telephone. Taking your details and requirements is a simple but important process to ensure that the products you receive are tailored to your needs exactly.

  • We Do Not Sell ‘Added Extras'

    The only products we offer are the ones listed on our Prices pages. We do not sell other add on services that you did not ask to see, such as funeral plans, Will storage with annual fees, or other financial services products.

  • We Put Your Mind At Rest

    We ensure that the whole will-making process is as simple and hassle-free as possible, leaving you with the peace of mind that your possessions will go to those you have chosen and your loved ones will be taken care of when you are no longer here.
