Meet the team


Thinking about and planning for your own death can be extremely difficult. This may be the reason why many clients we meet have not yet got around to making a Will. In our experience however, making decisions about what is going to happen to your assets after you die, actually helps to put your mind at rest whilst you are alive.

If you do not make a Will, the people you would like to inherit your estate may not get what you want them to have. The intestacy rules which apply if you die without a Will do not recognise step children or “common law” spouses, and will pass your estate to the Crown if you have no living family at death. In some cases not having a Will may mean more inheritance tax is payable when you die.

It is particularly important that you make a Will if you have young or disabled children, a disabled spouse, or an unmarried partner.

Ridley & Hall can help you put together a Will which meets your needs and at the same time advise you on the tax implications connected to your estate.

What our clients say:

  • We found the service you offered excellent.  It was extremely friendly, clear and concise, and the communication was informative and speedy with a minimum of fuss.  Sympathetic in the circumstances too.  P.S. Girls on reception – totally lovely, very personable and helpful.

  • All work carried out to our complete satisfaction. Thank you.

  • Jill was very kind and friendly making me feel at ease!

  • I would like to thank the both of you for your help with this matter. I did not realise what being an executor entailed. I know that things like this are an every day part of your jobs, and probably other wills are more complex. Again, though, thank you very much.

  • Jill dealt with us and helped a lot by explaining clearly.  She was very kind to two old people!

  • A first class service, professionally executed in an efficient and timely manner.  A perfect service – so improvements not applicable.

  • The initial appointment was excellent. We were very impressed at being able to have a home visit. Jill was clear, patient and understanding at this sensitive time.

  • As always, very happy with the service from Ridley & Hall. Jill is very professional and efficient in dealing with our wills. We have recommended her to our parents.

  • I just wanted to thank you for all the work you have done recently on behalf of me and my late mother. You activated the power of attorney my late mother had set up some years ago, you organised with a colleague the sale of her home and, latterly, you sorted out the probate on her estate. I’m hoping that I won’t have the need of your services again, in the near future anyway, but I do appreciate your expertise and the very friendly and personal way in which you have handled these matters.

  • To all who were dealing with my mother’s estate, I just want to thank you for all the support you have given me throughout from my mother making this Will with you. It has been a very difficult situation to have been in all these years, trying to get people to listen to me but I got there in the end and you were the people who actually listened.
