Meet our Office Dogs: Edie and Elbie

Our office dogs, Edie, the Miniature Labradoodle and Elbie, the Black Labrador were breeds selected for their loving, kind, caring, and instinctively compassionate nature. They have a huge part to play in boosting team morale and are always around for support and to help improve our psychological wellbeing.

At Laurelo, we strive to offer a caring and empathetic service – not just to our families going through the Probate application process but also to our valued team members. Our team is the face of our business and being in the bereavement industry, their emotional wellbeing is paramount. In order to support our families at the highest level, it’s vital that they feel supported themselves – both professionally and emotionally. 

Studies have shown that having dogs in the workplace can reduce Cortisol levels, the hormone linked to stress. We certainly don’t need convincing, as Edie and Elbie never fail to bring a smile to our faces – whether we’re walking them on our lunch break or taking time out to satisfy their insatiable desire for belly rubs.

In addition to canine therapy, our Operational team speak to the Field Team at least twice a week, checking in on their wellbeing. We also host frequent team events to ensure that our colleagues feel supported, motivated, and cared for – and have a forum to download and share.

As a business with old-fashioned values, our commitment to excellence doesn’t stop at our clients. We’re proud of our team and the way they operate as a supportive and cohesive unit – and every team member is classed as part of the Laurelo family, dogs included!

We’re always looking for loyal, dedicated people to join our team. To make an enquiry about working with us please complete our form here:

"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"."

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"
