We provide legal support to address the major challenges in life and protect your family and finances.
From relationship breakdowns or personal injuries to property or criminal defence, we can help you achieve the best outcome for you and your family.
Coodes’ Wills and Probate team has been independently recognised as one of the leading practices for this work in the South West. Whether it is you or a loved one who needs advice, we can advise on all aspects of managing your affairs, from making a will or powers of attorney to creating a family trust to technical tax planning.
Our experienced wills and probate lawyers, working from offices throughout the region, combine up-to-date legal expertise with friendly, jargon-free delivery. We are here to help you understand your options, make plans for the future and resolve any current issues relating to wills and inheritance.
It is never too late to plan for what you want to happen to your estate, though we encourage all our clients to consider their will as early as possible, and to review their wills when their circumstances change. Our Wills and Probate team provide a comprehensive service covering all aspects of wills, inheritance and the disputes that sometimes arise when a loved one dies or loses capacity, or when families separate.
We have developed our services to suit the needs of ordinary people and to help them address the issues that crop up at the passing of a generation. We offer an integrated elderly-client service dedicated to helping you or your relatives with the unique legal issues that may occur in later life, including lifetime planning, housing, and physical and mental health care. Accessibility is one of our core values, so if required, we also offer home visits.
We regularly advise individuals looking to support loved ones who are no longer capable of managing their own affairs, for example, due to an illness or long-term injury. Our Court of Protection team works alongside our Mental Health and Community Care team to provide legal services such as help accessing support and representation in court.
With our roots firmly in Cornwall and Devon, we have extensive experience of supporting farming families and rural landowners in addressing the challenges they face in preserving their assets across the generations. Drawing on the specialist expertise of our Rural Services team, we provide tailored wills and estate planning advice to farming and landowning families across Cornwall and Devon.
Chambers and Partners, the leading guide to legal services, has described our Private Client team as “having a substantial regional presence” and “winning plaudits for its Wills, Trust and Probate work” with a “growing Court of Protection and elderly client focus”, and we are top ranked in Cornwall.
At Coodes, we are proud to serve our local communities with specialist lifetime planning and Estate Administration services. With offices in Truro, Newquay, St Austell, Falmouth, Penzance, Holsworthy, Launceston and Liskeard, we are conveniently located and easily accessible for people across Cornwall and Devon. We are also more than happy to discuss alternative meeting arrangements with you, such as video calls, phone calls and email. We may also be able to arrange home visits in certain circumstances.
