Roche Legal Jobs

She added, “As part of our innovative approach to subsequent legal planning, we have also developed and published a series of user-friendly pocket brochures to help clients understand a legal process that can seem intimidating. The brochures are meant to be much more than a phone conversation with a lawyer, but serve as a checklist for dealing with highly emotional and complicated situations. Local attorney Rachel Roche says Kate Garroway`s poignant story about her husband`s battle with COVID-19 has highlighted an important legal issue for families struggling with COVID-19. Rachel and her team at Roche Legal not only addressed the need to get more people to write their wills, but also developed a series of pocket brochures on managing the death of a loved one and caring for the elderly, with six more planned in the series. The brochures can be downloaded free of charge from their website. “In my opinion, we have created something new to appeal to the large number of people who currently have no willpower by offering a service that is both cost-effective and readily available, alongside our face-to-face meetings that some clients still prefer. Roche Legal Online is fully authorised and regulated by the Solicitors` Regulation Authority (SRA) and is staffed by real people. As soon as the client provides the information via the online system, he will be contacted personally by one of our lawyers. Rachel, founder of Roche Legal with offices in York and Harrogate, is an experienced retail lawyer who contributed to The Parliamentary Review 2018 alongside Prime Minister Theresa May. She said: “More than 60% of people living in this country do not have a will and that`s 70% of those under 64*, which shows that apathy is a problem. Our system has only four sections that the client must complete, which we believe makes it one of the easiest online will writing programs.

Clare Presley has been appointed Senior Partner at Roche Legal and will play a key role in the growth of the multi-award-winning York-based firm. York-based lawyer Rachel Roche has launched a state-of-the-art online will writing service to target the estimated 40 million people in the UK who do not have wills. “We use online identity checks to meet anti-money laundering requirements and have spent a lot of time ensuring the system is user-friendly while taking into account the risks associated with taking instructions remotely. It took Rachel two years to develop and then expand the unique online program, which went live today (May 23) and aims to demystify the process of creating a will and permanent power of attorney. “Our online system also offers clients the option to grant a standing power of attorney that allows them to appoint a person or group of people to make decisions on your behalf if you are no longer able to do so. Making sure you have a standing power of attorney can help prevent your loved ones from turning to a court for funds on your behalf to pay for your day-to-day expenses in case you become unexpectedly ill or live with dementia. “Once you have a valid will, you can be sure that your family and friends will be able to manage your estate the way you want if the unexpected happens. The effects of a person who does not have a will can be important for their loved ones, who can be left in the cold.
