Wills & Probate

Our probate department deals with a wide range of matters from the drafting of Wills to the administration of estates.

Our experienced probate team appreciates that dealing with matters following the passing of a loved one can be an upsetting time and are committed to ensuring that matters are dealt with as efficiently and sensitively as possible.

Any work undertaken in relation to the administration of an estate is carried out on an hourly rate basis. We confirm the hourly rates as follows:-

Director/Senior Solicitor £185
Assistant Solicitor £155
Trainees/Paralegals £109*

*All prices and subject to VAT and disbursements.

We provide specialist advice in relation to tax planning and powers of attorney. We can assist in relation to matters concerning the Office of Public Guardian and Court of Protection issues. We also deal with contested litigation in respect of a claim under a deceased’s Will.

We offer a competitive pricing structure. Please contact us direct for specific fee enquiries.


‘Amazing service. As a first time buyer nothing was too much trouble and they took the time to explain everything to me. Everything was dealt with really quickly and efficiently and prices were upfront and clear. Would highly recommend’

N. Owen

‘Very good service and able to liaise under difficult circumstances’ 


'Arwel could not have done more for us as first time buyers. He was patient, thorough and very responsive, even when our first house buying attempt fell through due to the sellers issues, he continued to work tirelessly to get us our amazing house, always very professional. Could not thank him enough and Gilbert Davies & Partners should be very proud to have him'

D. Smith

'Excellent service as always’

N. Bishop



‘I have used Gilbert Davies Solicitors to act for me as I was getting divorced. Louise Harding and her staff took my case on and acted for me over approximately 3 years. I found Louise Harding to be prompt and efficient meeting all expected timelines. Her knowledge and sound advice was instrumental in getting fair results during a very difficult time for me and my children. I would be very happy to recommend Louise Harding and her Company to act for anyone who is in need of such services’

'Louise has been more than a Solicitor to me – a confidant, listener, therapist, counsellor all rolled into one. Louise has got me through a very bitter financial resolution following my divorce. Louise supported me the whole way through and I will always be grateful for that'
