Legal Hub

Welcome to Pinney Talfourd’s Legal Hub - an area for frequently asked questions relating to the legal world. You might need advice about how to choose a divorce lawyer, when is the best time to draft up a Will, or how to start up a new business.

You might be trying to work out how to set up a trust for your children, or perhaps you’re in a situation where you think you have been unfairly dismissed from a position at work.

Our Legal Hub will hopefully make answering those questions much easier. Each one of our FAQs and legal updates has been written by a solicitor in our law firm in Essex, and they are on hand to tackle any further queries you may have.

If you do not see the question you need answering here, then please contact us using the form to the right; we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as we can.
