We are trustworthy

We are both qualified solicitors of many years experience, having worked in big firms in Newcastle and London with the required high standards of skill and client care. We have now chosen to practice as willwriters, regulated by the Institute of Professional Willwriters, rather than as solicitors as this provides us with the flexibility to be able to work from home and concentrate on preparing Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney for our clients. We remain members of The Law Society and we are also DBS checked.

We only charge fixed fees which we will tell the client once we have discussed their wishes with them. We do have a fee list but like to see the client in order to determine what is appropriate for their particular situation.

We are accountable

We have chosen to be regulated by the Institute of Professional Willwriters who are Trading Standards Approved. We are fully insured. We take our clients instructions face to face and if a client has any questions they will always be able to talk to us directly. We then prepare the necessary documents and arrange for them to be signed.

NICHOLSON CLARK WILLWRITERS

Anna-Britt Nicholson

I studied at Exeter University and the College of Law, London. I qualified as a solicitor in 1999 and enjoyed a career in the commercial litigation departments of Beaumont & Son Solicitors (now Clyde & Co) in the City and Watson Burton Solicitors in Newcastle, before taking a career break to raise my family. I then qualified as a Willwriter with the Institute of Professional Willwriters.

Caroline Clark

I studied at Edinburgh University and the College of Law, London. I qualified as a solicitor in 1996 and specialised in family law at Wilkinson Maughan Solicitors (now Eversheds) in Newcastle and later Charles Russell Solicitors in London. After returning to the North East and taking a career break to raise my children, I qualified as a Willwriter with the Institute of Professional Willwriters. I have a broad experience of advising clients on sensitive and complex family matters and this has stood me in great stead in understanding the issues that may arise in relation to estate planning.

Institute of Professional Will writers (IPW)

We are members of the excellent IPW whose Code of Practice has been approved by the Trading Standards Institute. The IPW requires all their member Willwriters to train and pass their examinations before they can start working as a Willwriter and to continuously ensure that their knowledge is up-to-date. Importantly, they also require Willwriters to hold at least £2 million of both professional indemnity and public liability insurance, which ensures that clients have peace of mind.

We will chat to you in the comfort of your own home or office and give practical advice in an approachable manner, hopefully free from confusing legal jargon. The service we provide as Will writers is enhanced by our expertise in the law while our fees are not!
