As a close knit, family run law firm, we provide friendly, professional advice to local people from a local office. We are specialists in Will drafting, Lasting Powers of Attorney, and the administration of deceased’s estates (Probate). Our approach is based on getting to know our clients, understanding their concerns and objectives, and taking the best possible care of them at every stage.

Traditionally, it’s how solicitors have always worked. But in an age when law firms are becoming more corporate and impersonal, Hudsons Solicitors is proud to be a bit ‘old school’. We’re confident you’ll find us helpful, professional, reliable, reassuring – and extremely refreshing.
