Knowledgeable, efficient and a pleasure to deal with.
We can’t praise Sue of SJM Wills enough as she was knowledgeable, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. Any questions or queries we had regarding our will’s, lasting powers of attorney and putting own house in to a trust were answered in an easy to understand manner.
Having never done anything like this before now, we were amazed at the amount of information we had to assimilate but Sue led us through it all whilst holding our hands so to speak and any questions or queries were answered swiftly, with double checks to ensure we knew what was happening.
Our thanks to Sue and we’ve recommended her to our friends and family.
Tragically, my dear mother was told she had days to live. She was desperate to change her Will, and through recommendation I contacted Sue.
Sue sensed the urgency of the situation and immediately set my mind at rest by suggesting that she would have a virtual meeting with my mother. Throughout, Sue was so respectful, gentle and compassionate and gave mum the time she needed to express her wishes. Not only did Sue arrange a virtual meeting, but she also then visited my mother the following day with the Will already prepared.
Knowing that mum was very unwell and that our family were very distressed, Sue put everyone at ease with her empathic nature, and treated mum with respect and dignity. Sue’s help with the Will eased my mother’s worries and it was clear how much of a relief this was to her.
We are so grateful to Sue for the way she dealt with us as a family.
My family will not have to spend unnecessary time working out what my wishes were
I recently had the pleasure of using Sue to draft my will. Upon commissioning Sue’s services, she met with me to go through what was involved. We then met again to agree the detail and ultimately to arrange the grand signing.
Sue walked me through all the relevant components of an effective will and helped me to arrive at decisions by fully explaining what the implications of my decisions now, might be then….
I now have a fully functioning will and can feel assured that in the unfortunate event of my untimely demise, my family will not have to spend unnecessary time working out what my wishes were.
Sue is very friendly and helpful, and I have recommended her services to friends and family when they feel ready to plan their funerals or review their wills.
Sue was very knowledgeable and helped us work through decisions to get to an end position we were happy with for our wills. She was willing to make changes along the way and was happy to answer any questions we had.
Sue was professional and we really appreciated her approach to what is not the easiest of subjects to be spending your time talking and thinking about.
Cheerful and humorous
I am writing to thank you for drafting the Wills for my beautiful wife Alison and I. As someone who must have written dozens of Wills in the past I was very impressed by your attention to detail and for looking beyond the horizon and having a clear vision of just what a Will ought to deal with.
Writing a Will is not straightforward and as a lawyer I have dealt with several cases where people have caused all sorts of problems for their families after purchasing one of the DIY Will kits you see in bookshops. I know very well how important it is to get a Will drawn up. You brought to my attention a number of points that I had not previously considered and we enjoyed your cheerful and humorous company when you visited us to talk about it.
I am looking forward to recommending your Will writing services to as many people as I can and would like to thank you for assistance in achieving a very important task to ensure that our family arrangements are put in order.
Thanks once again!
I wanted to thank you for the time you took with my Dad to understand his needs and your professionalism. I certainly wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you to others in the future
Presentation of the will is so good
Dear Sue I did not get the chance to say thank you for your patience to-day you did so well in explaining everything and your presentation of the will is so good. I do appreciate all the work you put into getting it all ready for me. Thank you so much Yours Sincerely Marjorie
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. We didn’t have a clue about wills, but Sue was so friendly she instantly put us at ease and discussed all the different things to think about in plain English, and she also gave us great advice, which made the whole process so easy. We were delighted with the results.
I would not hesitate in recommending Sue to anyone I know who would be interested in a writing their Will.
Sue gave us excellent service drawing up a Will for my wife and I, my Mum’s Will, my Uncle’s Will and a Lasting Power of Attorney for myself and my sister (regarding my Mum and just-in-case we need it at some point but with good safeguards for Mum built in).
Sue looked after my relatives very well when doing their Wills, explaining the impact of decisions and requests as she went through the drafting process. She made sure that loads of different circumstances were covered so none of us will have to keep rewriting the Wills.
Most of all Sue took great care of all of us, travelled to our homes at times that suited us, she set us at our ease, made sure everything was understood and was extremely caring and gentle with our older relatives, made the process confidential to the person making the
Will, lots of listening and a very professional and caring attitude.
Very Highly Recommended, many thanks Sue
Taken care of literally everything
Sue has just completed mine and my wife’s Wills for us. We were struggling to find someone who understood exactly what we wanted with our Wills but Sue got it right from the start. She has taken care of literally everything for us and achieved exactly what we wanted. All for an exceptionally reasonable price. I would highly recommend Sue without hesitation if you are thinking of doing or re-doing your Will
I highly recommend Sue Mason of SJM Wills & Associated Services. I commissioned Sue to write a will for myself and my husband, and also prepare our Lasting Power of Attorney. Her knowledge and advice was excellent, and she was able to explain and present the information in an easy to understand way. At times the detail was complex but Sue dealt with our questions confidently and with ease. I imagine that writing a will can be a delicate matter and I have no doubt that Sue would approach this professionally and with great empathy.
We’re a busy family and so finding time to meet with Sue to discuss and then review the draft documents wasn’t easy, but Sue was patient and understanding. She made the process easy and was flexible with her time.
I was so impressed by Sue’s service that I also recommended her to my Father-in-Law who was looking for someone to update his will. He was very pleased with Sue’s knowledge and professionalism.
I would not hesitate to recommend Sue Mason of SJM Wills & Associated Services. I’m pleased that I’ve now put in place the correct arrangements to help financially protect my family, home and business should the worst happen.
Dear Sue, I wanted to thank you kindly for the services you carried out for a friend of ours recently. Our friend Sheena had this to say: I read my will last year and realised how out of date it was. I had also become aware that my assets were growing and I felt a bit unprotected.
Leonie Williams recommended I see Sue Mason of SJM Wills. Which I did. Sue explained to Tim and I how our assets were unprotected against care home fees as our wills stood. Also with our increasing property portfolio I was keen to have it put into a trust to protect it against eager children that might sell it, rather than reap the benefits of rental income for many years.
I found Sue very patient as we went through all the different quirks we wanted and she answered all our questions and explained the strange jargon used etc. Now we both have new wills that will protect us and our children against horrible things that might happen in the future?!
I want to say a big thank you to Sue for her patience and for her professional service. I would and have recommended Sue to my friends. – Thanks for helping Sheena out Sue. Well done!

Kelly and I were introduced to Sue as a result of an old neighbour, as we were looking for a will to be written following the birth of our baby daughter. Sue is able to come to your own home at a time and date that is always convenient to yourself. Sue is very professional yet not too formal and she has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to writing wills.
We did not realise how important it was to have a will, needing to ensure you have considered every possible eventuality when it comes to guardianship of children and also the inheritance of your estate.
Alongside this your ‘Power of Attorney’ which is equally, if not more important. We have had our wills rewritten on several occasions, as a result of changing circumstance and the birth of our second daughter. We would definitely recommend Sue to anyone who would like a will written, you would not be disappointed with her service and approach towards such a difficult subject to discuss.
Regards Kelly & Jason Sugden
I would like to thank Sue for being so efficient and cost effective for a friend of mine and his will. Sue responded quickly at the right price to our request would recommend to anyone kind regards Patrick McShee.
I like to thank Sue Mason for writing my Will and power of attorney. Sue was very professional and knowledgeable in her field. Sue was extremely patient spending some going through the various options with me. She explained the difference between herself (a Will writer) and a solicitor as well as going through the problems with writing your own Will.
I’m now feeling very relieved that my Will has been written and that my children will be safe and secure should anything awful happen to me! I would not hesitate in recommending Sue Mason to everyone giving them peace of mind, like I now have myself.
Dear Sue, Testimonial for SJM Wills and Services. I would like to thank you for your excellent service in helping us put our wills and power of attorney into order. The whole business was made simple by you visiting the house and going through it thoroughly with us. Thank you for providing peace of mind, in a professional and genuine manner.
We would most definitely recommend Sue Mason as a first class provider of this service.
I would like to thank Sue for providing me and my husband not only a professional service but for exceeding our expectations in every way. So much so I recommended Sue’s services to a few friends and they have also said what excellent customer service she gave.
Sue visited us at our home and made the daunting process of valuing our estate and assets seem simple. I find some professionals will use a lot of jargon and not check if you fully understand but Sue went into every little detail in a language we both understood making sure we were happy step by step.
I can not recommend Sue enough and would like to thank her for making a job that I kept postponing become easy to do.
