Beccy carried out the work associated with my Aunt's probate. This complicated process was well explained and we were kept fully informed of the various stages that had been reached. All done in a timely and friendly manner.
When I first met Beccy in the Kingsbridge Library she gave me a simple perspective on our seemingly complex issues and her ease with helping me to understand the way forward helped on many different levels, especially knowing that she was available should we need further legal direction.
It is a very different solicitor client experience at Start Point law and I feel that I am valued as a person as well as being a client.
I am impressed with the time that both Beccy and Rebecca give to the free legal clinics and to the charitable work that they do. It has an effect far beyond what can be seen on the surface.
I am very happy to recommend Start Point Law to other people should the opportunity arise.
I was introduced to Beccy by a friend, who is an Independent Financial Adviser, to help with advice regarding Power Of Attorney and IHT planning after my father had a stroke.
Beccy has supported myself, my brother and my late mother in a range of matters since then and has helped to save us a substantial amount in tax through her knowledge and experience. I have even saved further money as, when Beccy pointed out that our previous wills were poorly drawn up, this was raised with the previous solicitor and they refunded their fee, even though it was 6 years ago!
It is not, however, just the expertise that has led me to recommend Start Point Law to a number of people but the friendly and approachable manner of both Beccy and Rebecca whenever you call, meet or text.
I would happily continue to recommend Start Point Law to anyone in need of their expertise in the future and certainly will be using them myself."
Thank you for all your help with the finalisation of my father's estate. I did not realise how much was involved and I don't think that I would have been able to manage without you. Everything went extremely smoothly. I will not have any hesitation in recommending your services in the future.
My brother and I were executors for our late mothers Last Will and Testament (LWT) and when she passed away earlier this year we went along to the Solicitor where my mother’s LWT was being held, unfortunately at the first meeting they were not very helpful and they made things seem very complicated and we were not very happy with the service we received. Because of this we decided to look for an alternative solicitor to deal with the Administration of our mothers LWT. Through his church my brother had met with Rebecca Bristow (Beccy) and Rebecca Weare of Start Point Law, a company that started business in Kingsbridge in 2017 and specialise in Life Time Planning, Disputes and Estate Administration & Probate. They have lived and worked in the South Devon for over 14 years and work to support the local community.
From our very first meeting with Beccy we knew we had found the right person to deal with our requirement, Beccy explained everything to us in plain English and assured us that she would deal with everything, all we had to do is provide her the key information requested. We were given a fixed fee to carry out the work involved in applying for Probate and Administering the Estate and true to her word Beccy dealt with everything.
Furthermore, by giving us what we believe to be a very fair fixed fee we did not have to worry about the clock, number of phone calls, emails or letters etc.
We are very happy with the service given by Beccy (Start Point Law Ltd) and will not hesitate in using them again should the need arise.
Start Point Law are applying for the grant of probate on my mother’s estate. In our initial meeting the process was explained clearly, it was friendly and constructive. Since then the application has been dealt with quickly and efficiently. Beccy is approachable and happy to answer any questions that come up. I’ll certainly be using them in the future if the need arises.
I worked with Beccy as co-executors of a Will recently and found her to be thorough and meticulous as well as highly efficient. It was an emotionally difficult time, but Beccy made sure all the legal necessities were dealt with swiftly and kept me up to date with proceedings. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Beccy as a Solicitor, I thought she was amazing!
