Wills service is in UK's top 20.

LIVERPOOL law firm Jackson & Canter is one of the first in the UK to earn a national accreditation for its wills and probate service.

The city centre solicitor has achieved recognition from the Law Society Wills and Inheritance Quality Scheme (WIQS).

Launched earlier this month, it aims to provide reassurance to those looking for legal advice and assistance in either writing a will or validating inheritance through the probate process.

By demanding law firms pass stringent tests to earn accreditation, WIQS offers an assurance to clients that they will receive trustworthy, responsible advice and support from its members.

Since the scheme was launched, only 20 law firms, including Jackson & Canter, have been accredited.

Naomi Pinder, head of wills and probate at Jackson & Canter, said the endorsement shows their commitment to providing high quality service for all its clients: "WIQS is a quality mark which gives our clients added confidence that we have developed robust and safe procedures in relation to wills and probate."

A professional member of Solicitors for the Elderly, she added that the quality mark demonstrates to those going through probate or looking to draft a will that the firm holds itself to the highest standards.
