As well as writing Wills, our wills and probate solicitors work each day to help our clients through the often challenging process of estate administration, allowing you to share the responsibility and make sure that all the listed beneficiaries receive the inheritance they are owed with minimal fuss.

I was referred by a client of mine to use Neves and specifically Beth Woodward for my divorce. Beth is about as calm and professional as you are ever going to meet. She allayed fears that I had and was very quick to give me a clear path. Beths approach gave me total faith in her and the process that she knows inside out. She is enormously talented and also very adaptive. I think what I valued most was the empathetic approach and quickly understood how I wanted/needed to be spoken to so the information would be retained. My now ex wife was told not to settle unless the figures were between 80-95%. She used 4 different law firms and a barrister and ended up with a huge outlay in fees. My fees were slightly under that predicted by Beth and my ex and I settle on a percentage under 60%. Beth is the consummate professional who over delivers at a little under her projected costs. I could not be happier. Thank you so much to Beth, Jayne and the rest of the team.

Emily Pope took over my Divorce case, when my solicitor left the practice I was with and quickly got up to speed on the position and where we needed to go with things. I was extremely impressed with her professionalism and response times. And a lovely, empathetic person as well.

Neves LLP in Milton Keynes, in particular Beth Woodward has been spectacular. Her professionalism, expertise and competence ensured that she secured the divorce settlement I wanted and on my terms. Latterly also re-negotiated the terms concerning the family home. Would recommend her to all in need of serious expertise in matters of Family Law.
