Did you know?
Will Aid November
Have you made a will yet? No? Then come and see us during the month of November when together we can raise money for 9 of the UK's best loved charities. The scheme is simple: we waive our fee for drafting a simple will and you make a donation to Will Aid. The suggested donation is £90 for a single will and £135 for a pair of basic or matching wills. Will Aid is now in its 25th year and during that time has raised £13.5m for charities. To find out more http://www.willaid.org.uk

The breakdown of a relationship, civil partnership or marriage is often a time of great anxiety. With the withdrawal of Legal Aid from most family disputes, the prospect of paying legal fees can be another worry.
Hutton's Solicitors, one of the leading family law practices based in Cardiff and South Wales, has developed a range of Fixed Fee Family Law services so that you can have excellent legal advice at an affordable price.
Hutton's are recommended in Legal 500 2013 for Family Law.
Hutton’s offices in Cardiff have been chosen as the location of a solicitor’s office for the forthcoming third series of TV comedy drama series ‘Stella’. Produced by Tidy Productions, 'Stella' is set in the Welsh Valleys and stars Ruth Jones, Steve Spiers, Elizabth Berrington and others. The series centres on the Morris family, friends and neighbours and the ups and downs of Valley life. On shooting days our office has been transformed into the offices of Jackson Marsh and Jackson, which has confused a few clients! We were delighted to be invited to the Welsh Baftas recently where 'Stella' won three awards, for Editing, Best Writer (Ruth Jones) and Best Drama. Read more
