I was recommended to Ruth’s services from a friend. We needed to get a Will completed for both myself and my wife and it was a job we had put off for sometime. Having arranged a meeting out of hours at our home, we met with Ruth and she explained the process and made it very simple to understand. She listened to our needs and also helped with leading questions. We signed the wills yesterday and have to say it was a very good service. I would highly recommend Ruth and found her service very professional yet very personable. Thanks for your help. More...

Ruth has just completed preparing and setting up our Lasting Powers of Attorney. She guided us through the whole application in an easy to understand way, responding quickly to our questions and keeping us fully informed at each stage of the application process and ensuring a swift successful conclusion. It was a pleasure to meet her and have her working on our behalf. We would be delighted to recommend her to family and friends and any future clients.

We are so delighted to have finally had some advice, guidance and support in the writing of our Will. Ruth came to our home, at a time that was convenient for us, and made a difficult process, clear and understandable. Thank you so much. Would highly recommend!! More...

Ruth came to our house at a convenient time for my husband and me. She was brilliantly professional, friendly and patient. She made the whole process of getting our wills sorted both easy and painless. Great price too. Why pay for a expensive law firm when she gives such an amazing service? More...

We engaged the services of Isla Law to update our wills and set up a life interest trust. We found Ruth to be so much more than a will writer as she is a qualified solicitor and provides legal expertise in everything pertaining to legacies, inheritance tax planning, estate planning, power of attorney, succession planning etc, etc. Not only were we very impressed with the service and professionalism, the promptness and price were fantastic compared to the City law firm we originally asked to quote. And we completed the process entirely in the comfort of our home as Ruth came to us! More...

Q&A

I love meeting new people and being able to offer genuinely beneficial advice to help protect them and their families and loved ones. My job is often about listening until I uncover the real point of pain, which is sometimes not the first thing a client will talk to me about. By making my clients comfortable, and developing a trusting relationship, I often get to the root of the real concern quite quickly, and I then get real satisfaction from being able to find a good solution.

I worked as a solicitor for ten years before setting up my own will writing business. Working for big firms wasn't always working out for me (I have two young daughters and wanted to be flexible in my hours yet still be rewarded for all the hard work and effort I put in), but more importantly it wasn't always working out for my clients. I wanted them to be my boss rather than the partners in a big corporate law firm. So I founded Isla Law to make my service better for my clients, offering a personal and flexible service at a fair and competitive price. Isla law is really my way of bringing my expertise to you, direct.

I have over ten years' experience in wills, lasting power of attorney and probate work, having previously worked for some of the biggest law firms in Kent. I am a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP), which is the gold standard in private client work. I have an approachable and friendly manner and am able to explain complex legal jargon in plain English. I always aim to put my clients at ease and to take the stress out of what can be a very difficult and emotional process.
