Enoch Evans LLP’s Wills, Tax and Probate Department is proud to be one of the leading providers of private client advice in Walsall, the Black Country and the West Midlands.

This scheme ensures that not only is all advice provided to clients in connection with Wills, Probate and Estate Administration of the highest standard, but that the way that advice is delivered means that clients are kept informed of progress and dealt with professionally and sensitively. All members of the Department, who deal with these types of work, have undertaken the compulsory annual training and assessment required for the Firm to continue to be accredited with WIQS
