With the increasing pressure and demands placed on the National Health Service, it is apparent that patients do not receive the necessary standard of care. When this happens it can have a devastating effect on a person and their family.

Over the last 20 years Archer Solicitors have gained expertise in representing clients who have been the victims of abuse. At the present time we have cases representing individuals who were abused as children whilst in the care of the institutions as far back as the 1950’s.
We have obtained compensation on behalf of clients not only in respect of the physical abuse inflicted upon them but also in relation to the impact their experiences as children have had on their future financial earnings. Archer Solicitors also represent clients who have been neglected and abused in homes run by Social Services and the State.
In this digital age, the public is often directed to internet sites which encourage them to make Wills 'online'. This can lead to catastrophic consequences for the beneficiaries of estates after the death of their loved ones. At Archer Solicitors, we offer a full Will writing service which is both professional and reflects our insight into the needs and expectations of clients. Furthermore we regularly deal with applications to the High Court for Grants of Probate and Letters of Administration so that the inheritance process runs smoothly for all concerned. If your loved one has not made a Will and you have a query about the estate left behind, do not hesitate to contact our office.
