About Us

Hello and Welcome to Phoenix Wills and Probate. We'd like to tell you a little about us.

Update due to coronavirus

We're getting many clients contacting us asking whether we are still prepared to provide home visits. The short answer is yes.

Also though, not all clients are able or happy to see us in their home during the current situation. We want to stress we are also available via phone or Skype for simple Wills and powers of attorneys. Just call us to set up an appointment and we'll help you in whatever way works for you.

About us

We are Will writers working with clients in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire and the East Midlands, and using Skype or FaceTime, nationally.

We appreciate that right now you don't know much about us, so here's some useful information about who we are and what we do.

The company is owned by Elaine Tansley & Paul Tansley. We entered estate planning in 2005, after our training by the Institute of Professional Willwriters and passing their entrance exams.

Our expertise has continually developed over the years and we have attended many seminars and courses. Here are just some of the areas we advise on:

  • Protecting inheritances for your children, especially children from previous relationships

  • Lasting Powers of Attorney

  • How to sort out an estate of someone who has died

  • Concerns of elderly clients, such as how to protect the house from payment of care fees

  • Inheritance tax

  • Protecting business interests

We are well respected specialists in our area of law, and have worked with thousands of satisfied clients over the years. There's one thing that separates us from other Will Writers and solicitors. We're not interested in taking some bland notes from you, then shoe-horning you into a standard Will. We are often able to find issues that you might not even be aware of and help you resolve them.

But finding an issue is only part of the story - we'll provide simple and easy solutions in plain English for you.

Not only do we work with great clients, but we also provide business - to - business services. We have been instrumental in the development of major national Will writing brands, and we act as professional Will drafters for a number of established legal and financial services companies.

One important point. We do not have sales consultants - we will be your sole point of contact. Our focus is ensuring you have the right advice & the right documents that meet your needs. We work only with your interests in mind.

For your reassurance and confidence in us, Phoenix Wills & Probate is a full member of the Institute of Professional Willwriters (IPW). We comply with the IPW Code of Practice, which is sponsored by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute.
