In Wills, Probate, Trusts, Tax and Elderly & Vulnerable Client law the one constant is change.

Change in law. Change in practice. Change in how services are provided – to us and from us, as practitioners. New cases impact the law and as practitioners, we need to reflect that in how we deal with our clients.
