Probate

If you are looking for helpful and compassionate advice then look no further, here at Crowley & Co we understand the loss you are suffering and the likely challenges which lay ahead in terms of probate and the administration of your loved one’s estate.

If the deceased has left a Will their Estate must be administered. If the deceased did leave a Will the named Executors will manage the affairs of the Estate. If the deceased did not leave a Will the Intestacy Rules will decide who must administer the deceased Estate.  An Executor or Administrator can instruct a solicitor to help ensure all affairs are wrapped up as easily and as quickly as possible.

We run a very friendly team who can assist you will all your probate needs. Anna and Mark have a combined experience of over 50 years and have assisted many clients nationwide and locally.
