High Probate Fees

Overcharging for probate work led to striking off of a Solicitor

A Welsh solicitor has been struck off the solicitors roll for overcharging clients by as much as £70,000 for probate work. The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal also ordered Keith Smart to pay also £20,000 costs involved in the investigation. Whilst this is an extreme case we are still hearing stories of law firms charging excessive fees for probate and the administration of deceased persons estate. We advise Executors to shop around and not to take the first quote offered to them. To speak to our probate team and obtain a free no obligation quote call 01782 284320 and ask for solicitor Paul Finn
