We are here to support you and your families before and after death.

 2020 has been a challenging year for many individuals and families.

The covid pandemic has reminded us all about our own mortality and speaking about death, thinking about death and fearing death makes many of us feel uncomfortable but we are all exposed to it. Death is inevitable. It is part of life. People sadly die around us every day from accidents, illness and suicide. The moment of death can happen in many different ways.

Death, dying and grieving is very personal and unique to us all. In addition to this, every family dynamic is unique. Some estates are straightforward whilst others are more complex. Some people worry about people from the past coming out of the woodwork and causing disruption to their otherwise stable family set up, but nothing surprises us, we do not judge. Others worry that they do not have much to leave to loved ones but every life matters. Some people fear death and believe that by thinking about it they are tempting fate but it is important to talk. You can speak openly to us, you can rely on us and everything we discuss is in confidence.

Scullion LAW are on hand to help you get organised so that whatever happens you have peace of mind when you die. We are also on hand to help the loved ones you leave behind and can help them get organised.  

We want people to encourage open up about death and dying, by speaking to their families about their wishes for the future.

Getting an up to date Will and Power of Attorney created will guarantee you peace of mind. The process is simple and straightforward, the hardest part is deciding who and what matters most to you and actually getting your legal affairs organised. That is why you need specialist legal advice that you can trust. We are here to help you. Simply call 0141 374 2121.

Creating a Will and Power of Attorney is something people put off for years and always have on their to do list to ‘get round to doing’ one day but today is the day. Carpe Diem seize the day. Make a Will and Power of Attorney so everything is in place, allowing you to relax and enjoy life while you can. Life is for living. You have the time on your hands at this moment, whether you are working from home or doing some online Christmas shopping so why not take 5 extra minutes to make an enquiry?

We encourage everyone aged 18+ to make a Will especially if you own a property, own a business, have kids, a partner, grandchildren, or if you have shares, inheritance or a pension. Who would you like to benefit from everything that you have worked so hard for once you are gone? You need to make your wishes clear and update them when life changes every 3-5 years. We recommend you update your Will when you move home, get divorced or remarried, or when you sadly lose a loved one. Do you wish to donate your organs? What sort of funeral do you want? Who will look after your dog? When you die without a Will you create extra stress and hassle for the people you leave behind. It can be time consuming, emotionally challenging and costly to die without getting your affairs in order so – protect the ones you love today.

Life is unpredictable.
