Why Use Us?

Expertise, Quality, Certainty & Value

Why do so many professional Estate Planners use Pine Ridge Legal?
We believe that the Last Will and Testament and the Trust Deed Drafting Services we provide are the best available based on four main principles.

  • Dedicated expertise
  • Quality & Service
  • Protection & Certainty
  • Cost & Value

Dedicated Expertise

Pine Ridge Legal is a Barrister owned company that works with other experienced Barristers and a national network of Estate Planners. Wills and Trusts are our speciality and our primary focus.

Providing clients with a tailor made Will or Lifetime Family Trust makes up about 65% of what we do.

Quality & Service

Property & Financial Affairs
Not many legal practitioners would state that the production of a Last Will and Testament and Trust Deeds are their firm’s speciality and primary focus.

It is our belief that it is not something that should be provided on a “one size fits all” basis. For that reason, we explore exactly what it is that the client wants to achieve and to take into account their own personal circumstances.

The experienced Barristers who drafts the Wills and Trusts are made fully aware of what the client wants to achieve and will draft a Will or Trust Deed specifically for that client.

Protection & Certainty

Wills and Trusts are without doubt the most robust way to ensure that your wishes are respected and that your loved ones’ inheritance is protected. However, we recognise that your circumstances may change.

Pine Ridge Legal offer a 12 month aftercare service to all our Wills and Trust clients at no additional costs. Therefore if your circumstances change if you marry, have a child or inherit any additional property you are able to update your Will or Trust Deed at no extra charge.

Cost & Value

You would be forgiven for assuming that using a Barrister rather than a Solicitor would be more expensive as it is a common misconception.

Up until a few years ago, Barristers could not work directly for the general public; the client’s Solicitor would bring them in to deliver expert legal assistance. In essence, the relationship was that the Solicitor would be the retailer of the Law and the one charging the client whilst the Barrister was the wholesaler providing the service to the Solicitor.

Pine Ridge Legal provide professional service for their clients directly from a Barrister under the ‘Direct access’ rules, therefore eliminating the surplus solicitor costs.
