The team at Geldards frequently advises clients on the full spectrum of private wealth work, regularly acting for families, individuals and business owners on wills, trusts and estate administration. One local source says: "I've got no hesitation in recommending Geldards for the work that they do and I have done so in the past," adding: "I have no reservations at all and I am very, very pleased with the services they provide."

"I would unerringly go back to them for this work. I have not one complaint and I couldn't even think of anything," reveals an industry commentator, who continues: "They have competence, confidence and they've been really helpful. One of the good things about them is that there's always somebody there and if you don't have someone, there's always somebody there to get back to me on the same day."
