Mark Reynolds Solicitors have announced the expansion of its Wills, Trusts and Estates Department with the addition of specialist legal support for elderly clients.
The new Elderly Client service will be led by Wills and Probate expert Carl Marston. Carl, who served as regional Chairman of Solicitors for the Elderly in the Cheshire and Staffordshire District, has over 20 years of experience in this field. He has written extensively on the subject and offers free seminars to organisations and support groups with an interest in wills and probate planning.
Carl said: “It’s widely accepted that people are living longer, but fewer than than half of adults are thought to have set up a Will. I completely understand people put off making a Will, but without it there could be serious implications both financial and personal for your surviving spouse or partner. In the absence of a Will, you may not be able to leave money and possessions to the people who mean the most to you. Getting your Will properly prepared gives peace of mind and ensures you to know your loved ones will be taken care of when you die.”
The continued growth of the firms Wills, Trusts and Estates Department underpins Mark Reynolds Solicitors’ commitment to the provision of legal services specifically for retired and older people. The team now provides a range of Elderly client services which include the formation and management of trusts, powers of attorney, Court of Protection, asset protection as well as care home fees planning and challenges to care fees.
Carl said: “This is a very complex area so it’s really important that people know they are working with a team of specialist solicitors who will put their needs first. Our approach is to help our clients navigate the law and get the very best outcome for themselves and their loved ones.”
The launch of the Wills, Trusts and Estates Department and the new elderly client services is the next step in the continued growth of Mark Reynolds Solicitors. The firm now has five offices across Liverpool, Runcorn, Warrington and Leigh, with divisions covering Personal Injury, Medical Negligence and Employment Law. Carl is based out of the Warrington office but works across the north west region.
