Law firm, RG Law, has partnered with several Funeral Directors to provide legal services to bereaved families.
While the funeral planner deals with families at a very vulnerable time, they can extend that assistance, by referring any legal questions to a trusted advisor, who is available straight away, to answer any questions and give the right guidance. Donata Crossfield, Wills and Probate Director explained:
“When we are at our most vulnerable in life, we need access to good, caring advice and guidance. Funeral Directors that Partner with RG Law can create a one-stop-shop for families facing the complexities of death and legal matters.
This convenience can reduce the stress and emotional burden on grieving families, as they can receive all necessary assistance in a single location. Legal advisors also need the help from a funeral director when a client has passed away and solicitors are the executors of the estate responsible for the funeral; when the client is creating a Will/LPA as part of their lifetime planning and would like to take out a pre-paid funeral plan.”
RG Law has introduced a new package of savings that Funeral Directors can pass onto their clients:
- Free initial consultation to a bereaved family on probate process and inheritance tax
- Fixed costs with 10% discount
- 5* personalised and attentive service
- Access to services nationwide making use of technology through secure email communication, video and telephone meetings
- Offices located in Sidcup, Kent and York for face to face access
Hayley Owen, Funeral Director based in York commented:
“We find RG Law very caring, compassionate and approachable which is why we recommend them to our customers when they need help with wills and probate. Sharing a similar ethos and beliefs gives us confidence in recommending them to our families.”
Hayley Owen Funeral Directors has produced a Funeral Wishes Leaflet helping families to plan for their funeral and leave instructions to their families. RG Law distributes these to their Will clients in York, so that families may consider Hayley Owen in the future.
