Newport Land and Law Limited
Description from the business: While you expect your property solicitors and wills and probate specialists to know their stuff inside and out, unfortunately, not all of them apply the same level of knowledge to you â€“ you know, as an individual person.
When you’re covering such personal matters as buying or selling a home, sorting out wills and probate or dealing with trusts, you need to be confident that your solicitor has your best interests at heart.
We care deeply about you, your family, your needs and, essentially, your full understanding of the decisions you’re making.
If we don’t think something serves you, we’ll advise against it.
Because we know that long-term relationships aren’t built on making a quick profit.

How Did You Pick The Best Will Trust & Probate Solicitors in Wakefield?
We started with a dataset of 12 listed Wakefield solicitors and will writing services we could find via Google Maps.
From there, we removed any listing that did not meet the following criteria.
- Had no website
- Had no reviews
- Had an average review score below 4.0
At this point if we had 17 or fewer listings we listed all of them.
For cities where we were left with more than 17 solicitors we made further revisions by either increasing the required review score (e.g. going from a minimum of 4.0 to 4.9) and/or increasing the minimum number of required reviews (e.g. going from at least 1 review to at least 10).
In our view a solicitor which has 100 5* star reviews is likely more accurate than one which only has a single 5* review.
Note we only used review data from Google Maps and not any other third-party websites.
