Having had two family deaths within 7 months of which one required probate I was recommended to Laurelo. Michael attended my house with a colleague and explained what needed to be done, what services they could provide and the cost. Though you might think to yourself 'I can’t see that they could do all that' yes, they can. Michael placed me in the hands of Carmen Cottingham. A lady who is caring, considerate, thinks outside the box and goes above and beyond and leaving no stone unturned. She puts your mind at rest, and all her promises are kept, there is nothing that can’t be resolved, you don't need to motivate this lady. Her efficiency and knowledge in this field is second to none and her expertise enabled probate to be granted two months in advance. I cannot recommend this company highly enough, especially Carmen, it was the best family decision we made allowing Laurelo to deal with this matter as it took the stress, strain and worry off our shoulders.

A huge thank you to Paul Baker and team for your help recently. You may think that is your job but you went above and beyond. Helping me with my questions that weren't related to my parents probate. You answered my emails promptly or asked me to call if it was easier to explain directly. If only all the services I have used recently followed suit. Laurelo have executed, mine and my husbands Wills, Power of Attorney and Probate. I'm thankful that my Aunt recommended yourselves, I wouldn't hesitate to use your services in the future.

I live in the United States and when my mother passed away, aside from being grief stricken, I was at a complete loss as to how I was going to handle her estate as I didn’t live in the U.K. The solicitor who prepared her will referred me to Laurelo. I worked with both Paul Radcliffe and Paul Baker who were both absolutely wonderful and reassuring. They were also really easy to work with and the communication was excellent. Emails were answered immediately. Everything was handled in an extremely timely manner from the Grant of Probate to the completion of the sale of my mother’s house. I am forever grateful that I had such a WONDERFUL team taking care of everything across the pond! A heartfelt thank you to the Paul’s, I couldn’t have asked for a better team and definitely couldn’t have done it myself. Thank you.

Very helpful and understanding of my circumstances when I first contacted them after the passing of my husband. Michael and Jerry talked me through everything and made the process of probate easy to understand. My probate was unfortunately delayed for quite some time due to a spelling mistake of my husbands name by the court. It was eventually settled this year. I would highly recommend this company, in particular Jerry Mahoney who was in charge of my case. He was always on the end of the phone to help and give updates and was friendly,courteous and easy to speak to. I had also spoke to the receptionist at the office on a couple of occasions and she too was very helpful and got back to me very quickly with a reply to a query. Very professional company.

As a STEP qualified specialist Will Writer & Estate Planner, I recommend Paul Radcliffe & Laurelo to the families of all my clients. Their customer care is second to none, they are extremely efficient (as far as matters within their control), and their communication is excellent. As far as Probate services - I had to kiss a lot of frogs before I found this prince!!

The service that I am receiving from Laurelo Probate is absolutely first class. Jerry Mahony is immensely helpful in guiding me through the process of probate. He always picks up the phone no matter what time or day, and answers any questions quickly and efficiently but most importantly gives his heart felt, personal touch to such a difficult time, making it a much less stressful for me. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this company.

Jerry Mahony is a very approachable man who put us at our ease when we used Laurelo for my Mother in Laws probate. He fully explained anything we didn't understand. He kept us well informed through all stages of the probate process. I would certainly recommend Jerry and Laurelo to others

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”

“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

Just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help regarding Probate for our dear uncle – Ken Baggott.
You made the whole process straightforward. You were very efficient and approachable and kept us informed at every stage.
Thank you for all your support and hard work.  We were very grateful to have you at the other end of the phone to deal with any queries/problems that we had along the way. 
You are credit. Thank you again
