What you can expect when you work with us

When you contact us, the first thing that will happen is a simple conversation with a qualified adviser to find out what problems you are facing, the results you want to get and whether we could be a good fit to work with you. We never charge for an initial chat, and there is no obligation to work with us afterwards.

If you do want to work with us, there is a simple process to get you started:

1. Receive our questionnaire

One of the team will send you a straightforward questionnaire to collect some key facts about you and your circumstances. Or you can find them here

2. Complete our questionnaire

We’ve designed each one so that we can give you tailor-made advice. It should only take you about 30 minutes to complete!

3. Come to your meeting

We will then arrange for you to meet one to one with a qualified Isla Law adviser. Meetings are held either in person or remotely via Zoom or Teams. At the meeting, we will go through your individual circumstances in detail and give you advice about any documents you might need, such as a Will or Lasting Powers of Attorney, or how a longer process such as probate will be handled.

4. Sign your documents

If you make legal documents that need to be signed, we offer a further meeting to go through the signing process with you.

Our clients consistently tell us about the results they get after working with us. They tell us they have:

Less stress We support our clients and get rid of their admin headaches, cutting straight to the chase to get things done.

Smaller tax bills A simple estate plan combined with some basic legal documents can often reduce your family’s tax bills significantly.

Better relationships proper planning can prevent family arguments later on, and enable you to enrich your family’s life not just after-death, but right now.

We work on fair pricing

We’ve seen first-hand how families can be exploited when they are at their most vulnerable and scared. This is simply wrong.

We work on fair, fixed fees, agreed up-front wherever possible, with no hidden costs and definitely no ‘salesy’ pressure to buy unnecessary products or services. 

What you can expect from Isla Law

Faff-free appointments, arranged around your diary (including evenings and weekends), using video-conferencing technology so you don’t even need to leave your living room. Home visits are also available on request.

Prices that are given as fixed fees wherever possible, with no hidden costs, so you don’t have to worry about what will be on your bill. See here for information on our current costs.

Guaranteed expert-only meetings and drafting. We don’t use unregulated consultants or sales-people. We are a small, close-knit team that works together to get our clients results. We don’t outsource work to other organisations, it is all done in-house. No excuses, nobody who has no idea who you are – we look after you like you are a member of the Isla Law family.

In fact, we are so certain you will feel looked after by us that we offer all our clients a ‘feel better’ guarantee. If you do not feel better – like a load has been lifted – after working with us, we will give you a £100 cash payment, no questions asked.
