Understanding your needs and creating a tailor-made solution to ensure your family are protected if you die or lose capacity.

About Me

My name is Sue Mason and I am the principle of SJM Wills & Associated Services Ltd, which was established in late 2004. Having qualified for a law degree in that year, I have been a regulated member of the Institute of Professional Willwriters since January 2005.

Combined with my legal experience and the code of practice set by the IPW and Trading Standards, I am able to provide legally compliant advice and relating documents for the preparation of Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Provision for long term care and funeral plans.



A Will is a legal document appointing people to manage your estate if you die, stating exactly who you want all of your assets to go to.

Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA)

A Power of Attorney is a document which allows another person (the attorney) to make decisions on your behalf in certain circumstances.

Long Term Care

The cost of care in this area is about £60-80k a year! If you have to pay for your care, virtually your whole estate can be used on your care-home fees leaving almost nothing to your children or beneficiaries when you die.

Funeral Plans

The costs of funerals has increased by 122% over the last 15 years and is likely to increase more in the future. If you pre-pay for your funeral plan now, it guarantees there will be no price increase for your family to pay in the future.

Please be aware

Most people when asked ‘do you want to protect your home and wealth ‘ they say ‘yes’.

But in truth most people ‘don’t’. In a recent survey 65% of people had not made a will.

Willwriting is not a regulated profession, therefore many Willwriters are unqualified, uninsured and unregulated.

Whole process so easy

I asked Sue to come around, as I didn’t have a will, and after recently having a small child and buying a home, decided that I really should have one.
