    My experiance with Laurelo was very good. My brother died very suddenly. I had to deal with all his finances and selling of his property, So i needed probate. Micheal Roughan was very efficient and explained everything to me because i did not have a clue what i was doing. Would recommend him highly

    When my father died, myself and my mother had the task of sorting the paperwork etc which included applying for probate. We were recommended Paul Radcliffe from Laurelo and it was sorted quickly and efficiently. They were professional and transparent in everything they did. Thank you .

    These guys are pretty good and would highly recommend. Initially thought about doing the probate application myself and, although it looks straightforward at first, it definitely isn't. Laurels took all that worry away and application was turned round in 2 months.

    So happy with the way Emma and Michael handled our probate. They were a fountain of knowledge for everything to do with this tricky point in my life, being totally ‘green’ to the process. The perfect company to help you get the job done 😁👌👌

    Very impressed. My mum needed to know if she needed probate so came here to ask, emailing the details and received a quick response to say probate wasn't needed, and saving mum a lot of unnecessary expense. Very pleased with the prompt and honest service and will keep in mind in the future.

    There are no words to express how grateful I am for the help and support I have received from Paul Radcliffe and the Laurelo team following the sudden death of my brother last year, not knowing where to turn I first contacted a local solicitor who wanted upwards of £30,000 and 3 years or more to sort out probate, luckily after searching for a probate specialist I found Paul, he came to my home on more than one occasion, was respectful and understanding of my situation and took on my case, this took all the worry away from me and I was able to sleep at night and concentrate on the funeral arrangements for my brother. Paul went above and beyond to make things right for a difficult case due to lack of a will. Fast forward to April 2024 and I now have probate for my brother’s estate and paid a fraction of what I was quoted at the solicitor. I am now able to fulfil my brother’s deathbed wishes and for that I am eternally grateful. Thankyou Paul.

    My family were extremely happy with the service that Laurelo provided us after my mother's death. We had previously approached a different firm and solicitor to deal with the probate, but they were too slow to progress it and were charging us by the hour. So, we turned to Laurelo as they offer a fixed price, with no hidden charges. I'm glad to say that Michael and his team acted very professionally and got the job done very swiftly. Whilst probate is not something that I would wish to have to deal with again too soon, if/when the time comes I would certainly reach out to Laurelo again! Thank you team Laurelo!

    Highly recommend this company. From the first meeting almost 2 years ago to final completion today I can not fault them. I have dealt with Michael and he has been helpful, prompt in replying, easy to get hold of and just generally made a difficult process alot easier. They are worthy of all 5 stars. Thank you 😊

    Having had no experience of dealing with an estate and having lost both my in-laws in quite short succession I really couldn't have asked for any more support. I have dealt with both Michael Roughan and Paul Baker who have both been excellent at what really was a difficult time. Their response time is quick and no query or question was ever frowned upon. Absolutely recommend. Thank you once again

    Patrick and Phillipa Vickery (Executor)

    “When you lose a parent it’s an emotionally challenging time. Finding people to genuinely help with the mountain of subsequent issues is not easy. We dealt with Laurelo who took care of our Probate. Communicative and easy to talk to, Laurelo took away a bunch of stress and handled a complex estate excellently. I have no doubt that his experience has saved my family a significant tax burden.

    C Hardman (Executor)

    Well informed, helpful and efficient throughout the whole probate journey. I was particularly impressed by the speed of response when I had questions”

    A Wilson (Executor)

    “I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Laurelo in what, at the outset felt like a daunting task, but in reality once explained to us and the burden of completing the forms taken away and completed by a professional the process was seamless.

    Lorri Turner Senior Manager (Herongate Wood)

    “I have always found Michael at Laurelo to be engaging, honest and supportive of the customers needs. The offer of a home visit to see clients within their own familiar surroundings further supports this. I have no difficulty in recommending their services.”

    G Perrett Will Protect Ltd & Executor

    “Michael’s professionalism and knowledge of every aspect of probate is only matched by his sensitivity and patience. He instinctively knows what to say and when to say it and I am so grateful to him for helping me navigate the most difficult period of my life so far safe in the knowledge that I could simply “park” this part of the process and leave it with him to “sort out”.”

    K Whittle (Executor)

    “They provided a professional and emphatic approach and took all the stress away from dealing with probate. Filing the forms very promptly and the whole process was dealt with in just over a month. I would highly recommend and I again thank them for their help.”

    Mr. A Browne (Executor)

    The pricing point is good and in line with a few others, we found however for the service we received I do not think we could have put a price on it.

    We would wholeheartedly recommend Michael and his team.

    John F Smith (Executor)

    “I was most satisfied with the service he provided, and his gentle and considerate manner was most comforting at a difficult time in my life.

    Robert Evans (Executor)

    “I just wanted to express my sincere thanks to Michael for the way in which he managed the probate arrangements at what was a very difficult time for myself and the family. Whilst always professional and efficient he was very sensitive and supportive – explaining things clearly and making the whole process (which was totally new to us) that much more straightforward. It took a load off our minds and he progressed things really quickly Thank you
