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.

    Porter Dodson were appointed as both Executors and Trustees by my late cousin. On his death, the will was finally located and Stephanie McCulloch was assigned the task of administrating the estate. Over a three year period she has provided excellent professional service in a calm inclusive and friendly manner - briefing and consulting next of kin as appropriate. Throughout it has been a pleasure to be guided by Stephanie and we would have no hesitation in recommending Porter Dodson.

    Well organised, quick to respond to my needs and able to respond with knowledge and understanding. I was lucky to be recommended by the previous owner of this flat when we moved to the South West.

    We needed to get our Wills in place and after two bad experiences with other firms, we made an appointment with Paul Watkins at the Bridport branch. He was professional, made the process very easy and was quick at getting everything in place for us. I would definitely recommend his services and will be using him again for any future legal requirements.

    When we went to Porter Dodson to get help with sorting out my wife's estate for probate we were directed to Anna. Anna talked us through the procedure and gave us an estimate of what her charges would be to sort out the probate for us, which we accepted. When the final bill from Anna arrived it was half of her original quote, the reason being she explained was that she did not have as much work as she originally thought. Thank you Anna and Porter Dodson, you have really restored my faith in solicitors.

    From our very first phone call, we felt very happy for Sarah to handle our wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney. Her attention to detail was exemplary and she clearly and plainly answered our many questions. Never once did we feel we were under pressure. She made the whole process so straightforward and we have achieved everything and more from the exercise. We can wholeheartedly recommend Sarah and Porter Dodson.
