White Rose Wills - West Yorkshire specialists in Powers of Attorney and Probate Assistance.

White Rose Wills is a boutique firm offering bespoke private client services across the Yorkshire Region.

White Rose Wills acts for individuals, families and businesses to ensure that all the necessary arrangements are in place in the event of ill health or a death. We also assist other legal practitioners with their private client caseloads on a locum basis.

About Diane Burke

I have had over ten years’ experience practising and specialising as a private client solicitor working for various local medium sized high street firms.  I have in the past set up, established and managed a private client department for a West Yorkshire firm of solicitors. I am a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and a full member of the Institute of Professional Will Writers (IPW). STEP is acknowledged across the legal industry as being the benchmark of the highest professional standard in the area of Wills, Probate and Trusts.

I believe in offering a flexible, personal and efficient client service. I feel that the traditional high street practice is often no longer able to offer these attributes to their clients as they are increasingly led by partner profit margins. I therefore established White Rose Wills.
At White Rose Wills I am able to meet with clients personally, in their own homes, at a time to suit them be it evenings or weekends. I can take the time to get to know the client’s personal family circumstances and to discuss with them their requirements. I pride myself on being approachable and my ability to speak in plain English.

 

Services

For Individuals:

Everybody needs a Will but not everybody has one! White Rose Wills endeavours to make the task of making a will less daunting. A one to one meeting in a familiar environment with a friendly, qualified expert at significantly less cost than a high street solicitor. The peace of mind of knowing that you have one less thing to worry about and everything is in order.
White Rose Wills can also assist in the following areas of expertise:-

  • Wills including trusts
  • Probate
  • Inheritance Tax Planning and Advice
  • Lasting Powers of Attorney (both financial and welfare)
  • Advance Decisions
  • Registration of Lasting and Enduring Powers of Attorney
  • Court of Protection matters (appointment of a deputy)
  • Severance of Joint Tenancy

 

For Organisations:

White Rose Wills works closely with various organisations to help them to offer more.
White Rose Wills works with other legal professionals (solicitors, licenced conveyancers etc.) who want to offer a private client service but do not have the time, resources and in some cases expertise required. Working discretely and very much in the background we can provide these services to your clients. Often we are able to increase profitability so that the firm does less but receives more.
White Rose Wills also works with local charities and larger businesses to run legal clinics for members of the public and/ or staff. Discounts can be negotiated on legal work so that charities and employers can be seen to be giving back to members and staff.

Services offered:-

  • Locum rate work to deal with problem files
  • ‘Ghost’ private client department work
  • Staff training
  • Presentations
  • Legal clinics
