    Private Client

    Whilst modern life becomes increasingly complicated one principle remains true and that is that preparation is key to reducing the impact of problems life can throw at you. Our experienced team of probate solicitors can help you in various ways to prepare and ensure that you and the people in your life are protected and provided for.

    We can advise on Powers of Attorney to ensure that people you trust can look after your financial and personal affairs if you become unable to do so. We provide a full range of Will services and will work with you to draw up Wills and Trusts that protect your assets, to provide for your family or to address complex family arrangements. We will also be there for you to provide advice and support on the death of a loved one, to administer their estate in a smooth and efficient manner and in the most tax efficient way.

    We have a wide experience of personal and family circumstances enabling us to address probate matters in a professional and sympathetic way. We would be pleased to meet with you to discuss your circumstances and needs and work with you to establish how best to proceed and prepare for whatever your future holds.

    Very happy with Stephanie's approach to the work required.  Very helpful and gave me confidence that my requirements would be met.  Stephanie has a remarkable ability to provide reassurance and convey complex detail in such a ways as for me as the client to fully understand what is to be done.


    I have been with Porter Dodson since we started farming in 1954.  After my husband died we sold the farm and bought a property with my son. I used you then. I now, I hope, have made my final will and hope you will take care of things when I die.

    We were dealt with by Tom in a very friendly and professional manner. Any queries we had during the process were answered promptly and to our entire satisfaction. Thank you.


    Most efficient firm I have dealt with in Bridport.  My will was done in a very short time and fully explained. Stephanie is a great asset to you and a very pleasant person to deal with.

    I have used Porter Dodson for my legal work for a very long time. I have always been satisfied with their work and have found them easy to work with, particularly in making things easy to understand. Generally their advice has been excellent. Despite the lack of personal, face to face contact due to the COVID-19 pandemic, matters relating to my will and LPAs have progressed smoothly to a satisfactory conclusion.
