In 2016, Steve Owen, founder of Perfect Wills & Estate Planners, opened his very first shop in Wombourne. Steve, having lived in the area with his family for many years, with a strong sense of community spirit, identified a need for a trusted firm of estate planners within the area. Having been approached by friends and families within the community, confused, emotional and stressed when dealing with their affairs due to the loss of a loved one. Too many times this was seen happening, with no future planning, structure, there was no help or advice to support the families when they needed it most. It was then, Steve concluded, having seen for himself the challenges to wills, that a will simply was just not enough. Sometimes lengthy and costly probate costs, assets not being passed on to those loved ones and with contested wills, this added stress could all be avoided. With many years before such time, in writing estate plans following the completion of practice examinations, becoming a member of the Will Writing Society, the solution was there. The Perfect Wills & Estate Planners Shop was then formed. Since the opening of the shop, Steve has been overwhelmed with the gratitude from the families he has helped, describing him as ‘valued and trusted’. In order to maintain our high standards and to meet growing local demand, we are now seeking to expand our practice within the local area.
