My wife of 43 years sadly passed away after a short but strong battle with illness. The time leading up to her death and coming to terms with this was a real struggle for both myself and my two daughters.


How Laurelo Helped

Most of the administration burden was strangely quite easy to deal with but just one issue really did nag away at me to resolve a £80k benefit that could not be resolved without probate. I honestly felt, even given the sum involved that it was not worth pursuing!  That’s when Laurelo came to the rescue. I’d done some marketing work with Emma, Micaela partner and after sharing my story with her she got her man on the case.


Why Laurelo Were Different

I instantly felt a connect with Laurelo  in the way they worked through the process with me and took it away to sort. They  sorted the admin and the Court stuff and got in touch when the process was completed.



“Thanks Laurelo. I can now focus on life ahead now.”

"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."

“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)

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"
