About Us

adrianaboutCivil Wills was started in 2004 after the Founder had finished a successful career at sea. A Navigator in the Royal Navy and ten years as a Chartered Shipbroker was enough to quench the wanderlust.

Starting as a Member he is now a Fellow of the Institute of Professional Willwriters. This is an examination entry organisation that demands that everyone conforms to a Code of Practice regulated by the Trading Standards Institute.

My background and experience as a professional working in the charitable sector gave me the drive and ambition to provide a friendly, competitively priced service for families who are involved in caring for a relative.

I now work on a private client basis assisting individuals and families involved in the care of a relative, they do not need to have dementia to access my service.

I provide home visiting services for:

  • Lasting Powers of Attorney
  • Wills
  • Attendance Allowance form completion service
  • Assisting families to find appropriate care providers, set up technology in the home and understand dementia

I am passionate about people understanding the financial implications that come with dementia and health issues.
