Wills & Legal Services Ltd is a national Specialist Paralegal Law Firm with qualified paralegals throughout England & Wales. We pride ourselves on remembering that our clients have individual needs. All of our paralegals are highly qualified and able to explain all of our services in plain English without legal jargon.
At our Head Office in Malvern, we have an established and highly experienced Legal Department who specialises in Estate Planning and all of the associated services we offer. They are on hand to answer any questions our clients may have and are supported by WLS Solicitors, a wholly owned subsidiary of Wills and Legal Services Ltd.
Our experience, along with our unique Estate Protection Services, makes us one of the country’s leading specialists in this field.
Wills and Legal Services was set up in a barn in rural Worcestershire on the eve of the millennium by husband and wife Tony and Sarah Watson and friend Emma Hodges. Our background in the financial services sector stood us in good stead to implement a regulated approach to what is an unregulated environment. It was important to give clients peace of mind knowing their estate planning needs were covered by compliance and a complaints procedure, professional indemnity insurance, with qualified paralegals taking their instructions. So, we set up the very first National Specialist Paralegal Law Firm with all of our Paralegals members of the National Association of Licenced Paralegals.
Visiting clients in the comfort of their homes to provide expert advice was key to putting families at the forefront of everything we do.
Today we are one of the largest Will writing companies in the UK with over 120,000 families trusting us to look after their estate planning needs. We write over 15,000 new Wills every year with over 30 Paralegals across the country advising local people.
We adhere to a strict code of conduct and duty of care. We give all of our advice in plain English, ensuring that our clients fully understand the advice which is covered by Professional Indemnity Insurance of £2,000,000.
All our practising Paralegals are DBS checked (previously CRB) and carry out annual Continuous Professional Development Training.
We also own a regulated firm of solicitors, WLS Solicitors, and a regulated financial services business, WLS Financial Services.

What is a Paralegal
Why Choose a Paralegal over a Solicitor?
To support causes close to our hearts, 5 years ago we decided that we would no longer charge for writing Wills, instead asking clients to make a recommended donation of £40 to charity. We were so confident that people would be happy with our Will-Writing service that we believed they would come back in the future for other legal services, at which point we could charge our usual fees. This has proved true, and over 63% of clients do come back for further advice.
We are proud to have raised over £2,000.000 in upfront donations, supporting fantastic causes up and down the country.
