Our Services


  • A big thank you for all your professional and good service that you have done regarding my step mum's house. You were always quick to reply to emails and my phone calls. I would certainly use your services in the future. You made a sad situation a lot easier to deal with. Thank you again.


  • Following the sudden loss of my father, contacting Leicester Probate was the best decision I made. Right from our first meeting, Russell's calming and reassuring manner made a very difficult time so much easier. The professional and efficient way he dealt with everything to do with sorting out my late father's estate took a very heavy weight  off my mind. Throughout the process I received regular updates, and I found it very comforting to know that help was only ever an email or phone call away. I would certainly recommend Leicester probate to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation to mine. Thank you Russell and thank you Leicester Probate.

    Mrs J

  • My wife and I and I have both been very pleased with the excellent advice and services that Russell has provided us with over the many years. With his relaxed and thoughtful manner, time was taken at each appointment to discuss fully and plainly the details of the arrangements and services and he always made sure we fully understood everything. Russell was quite happy and willing to visit our home on occasion to complete paperwork etc which was all part of the outstanding customer service we received and we have no hesitation in fully recommending Russell to take care of all your legal requirements.
