Wills, Trusts & Probate Solicitors in the North East
Everyone should have a Will. It gives you certainty over who will administer your estate and, more importantly, who will benefit from it. A Will can be as simple or as complex as you need it to be. We specialise in creating the solution that meets all your needs. We provide you with a fixed fee quote so that you know exactly where you stand from the beginning.
We can also advise on wider issues such as dealing with the proceeds life assurance and pension policies in the most tax efficient manner. Many people (and their advisors) forget all about the planning opportunities offered by these assets, and can end up paying thousands of pounds of unnecessary inheritance tax. We can help you review your current and potential future assets and decide whether you need to undertake further planning to minimise the inheritance tax that will be payable upon your death. If you would like to chat through the possibilities for your Will or tax planning further, please contact us.
All of our Wills are prepared in full compliance with the STEP Will Writing Code which is a framework prepared by the Society of Trusts, so you can be confident that we always follow best practice. Click here to read the ‘STEP Will Writing code’

A first class service. Eilish Ferry-Kennington was excellent.
We were very pleased with the attention and service we received from Ms Turnbull. She was friendly and professional.She listened to our requirements and explained the possible options clearly and in language we could understand. The will-writing and further consultation with us was timely and efficient. The outcome met our expectations and more, and we are very grateful for the assistance we received from Ms Turnbull.
Ursula spoke at great length with me offering advice all the way. She was a great help. Not many would have been as engaging, or helpful. Contacting a solicitor can be a daunting experience but Ursula was really friendly.
Hi Julia. Thank you so much for all your efforts to help me . I have to say this would not have happened without you! You are all an amazing team and I really feel you all care !! So thankful to pat for recommending you all , she’s such a lovely lady . Our house is beautiful and we are on cloud 9! And more to the point, I’m finally rid of that bully for good! I would highly recommend you and your team to anyone! Thanks a million! JW.
I would like to say a sincere thanks to Jemma and EMG for helping me through a difficult time with a long term tenant who, through ill health was unable to carry on paying the rent and has since moved on to long term care, via the court of protection.
If Jemma hadn’t become involved and guided me through the difficult procedures to recover the arrears and regain the possession, I think we may have been struggling through without resolution for many months or even years.
I would certainly recommend Jemma and EMG to others in this position as you get the feeling that they really do care about your problems, but also in a very professional manner too.
“Thanks to Sam, I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Thank you again for your time. I certainly will recommend you and EMG for your professionalism and your kindness.” D. Rutter
“ Jemma – I just wanted you know how grateful I am for all your help and assistance at the tribunal, also your concern and caring manner you always have for us all.”
Thank you also for Richard, 100% agree with all your past clients, he so easy to work with, keeps you updated, fast and in general made the whole process (almost; as much as can be when buying a house ?) stress free!
Paul is so pleased with all of the support you have been able to offer up during the purchase process.
He is impressed by the way that you are free to help him and talk matters through. He also commented on how happy you always sound as well.
