About me

Supporting people, especially at a time of real need and transition, is important to me, and my work brings into people’s lives when they are facing challenges, whether administering someone’s estate, helping them to draft their wills or set up Lasting Powers of Attorney.

Business owners, farmers and trustees are all among my clients, both English-and Welsh-speaking, and I am happy to advise on trusts and tax issues as well as on wills and LPAs in both languages.

Outside work I love meeting family and friends and walking my dog Murphy; travelling will definitely be back on my agenda now too.

Understanding and expertise during estate administration leads to testimonial

The administration of an estate can be difficult at the best of times – particularly so if it’s a parent that’s died. That’s why a client turned to Nia Griffiths for guidance, expertise and understanding when his mother died. Nia kept her client and his brother, who were both executors, updated regularly and actioned their requests promptly. This included interim distributions, legacy distribution and reimbursement of expenses. Advice was also given with regards to capital gains tax implications on the sale of the property and corresponded with their accountants. Following this, the client said: “Nia was assigned to our case part way through the process of administering my late mother’s estate. Nia was extremely helpful and kept us updated on a virtually daily basis on progress. We were sincerely grateful for her thorough and highly professional approach where customer service and communication was of paramount importance. Thank you Nia.”

Read questions I’m frequently asked

Why do I need a will?

A will allows you to spell out your wishes clearly. If you do not have a will, the law of intestacy applies, removing the control from you.

Why is a Lasting Power of Attorney required?

Lasting Powers of Attorneys (LPAs) are like insurance policies; you arrange for them to be registered just in case they are required. An LPA allows you to appoint someone (or more than one person) to deal with your property and financial affairs or make decisions in relation to your health and welfare.

If we have been together for many years, do we have a common law marriage?

No, there is no such thing as ‘common law marriage’ under the laws of England and Wales.
