Phil Weston – Probate & Letters of Administration Expert

Hello, please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Phil Weston and I’m the founder and owner of  www.WillsandProbateService.co.uk. I have over 20 years experience in providing Legal Services advice and hope to share some of my knowledge with you today about Probate (and Letters of Administration where there isn’t a Will) .

It’ll hopefully save you the bother of trawling the internet for snippets of information here and there, or trying to make sense of the hundreds of forms on the government websites.

This site is different.

Like me, you may have found that most probate internet sites are focused on selling you expensive probate services, without even attempting to find out whether these services are suitable for the individual concerned. I hope you find this site different, and more helpful.

I started this website to provide free and useful content for people seeking help and information related to Probate and Letters of Administration following the loss of a loved one. Please feel free to download the free resources or call if you have a specific question you need answering.

This is a free site to use and is funded through my private practice Berkeley Weston Ltd Legal Services. If you do have a need for legal services I would be delighted to hear from you to see if we can work together. Call me on 0116 2795044 for a free, no obligation chat.

Here to help you through the probate minefield

I know from personal experience how devastating the emotional and psychological strain can be when a loved one dies. I understand each of us has to face anxiety, stress, fear and uncertainty and that is the reason I offer these useful free resources to you, in the hope that they will help you at a difficult and emotional time.

I am very proud of the fact that my clients are delighted with the services they receive from my firm. We are a small team specialising in end of life issues. In a recent independent survey 98% of our clients rated our service as “good” or “excellent”. Here’s some recent feedback from some of my clients I have helped with probate related issues:

“I really cannot thank you enough for the excellent hard work you did dealing with Probate and my mum’s estate. Nothing was too much trouble, you gave endless superb support and did a lot of extra work to make sure we weren’t under any additional pressure. I cannot recommend you highly enough. Your future clients can be totally assured from day 1 that using your probate service is not only fantastic value but does everything your website says it does! I am so pleased we used you. You are truly a gentleman professional who really cares about his clients and produces that special level of service that is needed in times of difficulty and stress. Please pass this on to your future clients.”

John Eckersall, Cheshire

“ We found your service via the internet and were at first a bit wary of using a company off the internet. A cousin had died and we did not have any idea of the procedures required to settle the estate. Our first contact was with Phil Weston by phone and after consulting other relatives it was decided to use the Probate Service offered by Phil’s Company to administer the estate and obtain probate for us. Phil was in constant contact throughout and he answered any questions we had and settled any expenses we incurred quickly and efficiently from the funds available. Once the property had sold he supplied us with the estate accounts straight away to confirm they were OK prior to the final settlement of the estate between the beneficiaries.
Throughout the process Phil Weston was always very helpful and efficient. If anyone is in a similar position and needs any help with regard to probate and the settlement of an estate I would have no hesitation in recommending Phil Weston and his team as a first point of contact and to administer the estate.”

Ian Rhoades, Cambridge
