Trusted Law (originally Trusted Wills & Probate) specialises in Wills, Tax, Estate Planning, Lasting Power of Attorney and Probate services; offering much needed peace of mind as well as flexible, convenient appointments to their clients. They are based in Norfolk, and were founded and built by Natalie Chapman, a wife to Darren and mum to fabulous twins.
A brief history…
Prior to having twins, Natalie worked for a large international law firm in commercial Real Estate whilst studying for her Legal Executive qualifications. She completed her studies whilst on maternity leave with the twins and started looking into different career options.
Keen to utilise her legal qualification and training, Natalie decided to set up her own business; she became a member of the Society of Will Writers and Trusted-Wills.co.uk was born.
Following the success of Trusted-Wills, and the twins going to school, Natalie had more time to grow the business and in August 2016 Trusted Wills became a Limited Company; Trusted Wills & Probate Ltd was born – trading as Trusted-Wills and Trusted-Probate.
Further success prompted the decision to expand and take on Consultants to help more clients with their Estate Planning needs.
From January 2018 Trusted Law Ltd was launched providing the opportunity to expand into more services in the future.
Natalie remains at the helm, available to talk to any client or business partner, but building a trusted team around her.
