Jonathan Eade has 40 years’ experience of Private Client work generally, but specifically in the area of Probate and Estate Administration.


Jonathan is experienced in dealing with complex estates especially those that are taxable, and which require post death variations.

He also has a long record of dealing with Intestacies and applications for limited grants.

Notable Private Client cases

  • Estate Administration

    Handling a large estate where the Will had been subject to post execution amendments. Obtaining the Court’s directions to submit a fiat copy of the Will with the amendments removed and successfully obtaining Probate.

  • Estate Administration

    Handling an estate that comprised a homemade Will, the effect of which was uncertain. Having ascertained and agreed the true meaning and effect of the Will, we were able to obtain a six-figure refund of Inheritance Tax from HMRC.

  • Intestate Estate

    Handling an Intestacy where very few of the potential beneficiaries were known to each other. Working with genealogists to identify all possible beneficiaries and ultimately distributing the estate amongst 16 beneficiaries some of whom did not know of the existence of the Intestate estate.

Client Testimonials

As first time buyers and our first Will making experience we felt we were well supported.


I would like to thank you all for your help over the past year your efforts and regular communication have been of the highest standards.


Sincere thanks for your hard work, professionalism and good advice in handling the estate and before that, my mothers affairs more generally. Like my sister and I, she always appreciated your good humour and common sense. Your help has been invaluable.


I would like to place on record my thanks for all your hard work and expertise in dealing with the estate, and being able to conclude matters with such efficiency - I was very impressed.


We have every good reason to be grateful for Jonathan's professionalism; foresight; sound judgement; patience (in large amounts); and unfailing good humour.


Jonathan dealt with everything superbly.


Heart-felt thanks for the time and effort you have given me while dealing with the probate process. Your very patient, clear and helpful advice and guidance through what I found to be a challenging and exhausting process was massively appreciated. As frustrating as this chapter has been your expert knowledge and confident handling of myself and the business at hand has been instrumental in getting to this milestone of completion. Coodes will be at the top of my list of recommendations [for solicitors] as a result of your individual treatment of this business.
