WELCOME TO MARTIN SMALLEY & CO.
At Martin Smalley & Co we pride ourselves on the friendly and approachable service we have provided for over 20 years. We aim to combine this with high standards of competence delivered in a cost effective way to ensure all our clients receive a service of the highest possible quality. This was recognised by the award of a Legal Aid Franchise confirming external approval of our procedures and the quality service we provide to our clients.
Please sign this petition to reconsider the proposed significant and unreasonable increase in probate fees
The current fee for all estates is £155. The change mean fees on 42% of estates will increase by 2 to 129 times, payable even if the estate passes to spouse or charity. There is no difference in the amount of work to issue a Grant for £100k or £800k and yet the fees will be £3,700 more.
This is something that will eventually affect us all. This needs to be seriously debated in Parliament and if enough signatures are obtained, a debate will be triggered!
We offer 'jargon free' practical advice, and find solutions to your legal problems.
The main source of our work is the result of referrals or recommendations from old or existing clients and therefore word of mouth is vital to our continued success. It is for this reason that all our staff are carefully selected and trained to understand the needs of our clients and the local community.
