Joan Hamer, died at the age of 91, in bed, in her own home.  She had two children and four grandchildren and was warmly regarded in her village.  Everyone knew Joan and all were welcome in her home for a cup of coffee and slice of cake. She listened to her visitors, understood their worries and passed on her wisdom to those who chose to confide in her.  

 

Joan's granddaughter, Kelly, adored her grandmother and did everything she could, as her grandmother got older, to make sure she had all she needed.  Joan told Kelly her wishes for the future and Kelly gave her a voice whenever necessary.  Kelly helped her grandmother with the serious things in life and the fun things.  Joan battled with numerous health issues towards the end of her life but nothing could dampen her spirit, not even a bad day.

 

Kelly is the founding director of Argo.  The legacy to her grandmother.  A company which gives a voice to those who cannot be heard.  Joan is the reason Argo exists. To help those who need it.

Who are Argo!

What does a “law firm” mean to you?  Does it mean big offices with large boardrooms and people in suits?  Does it mean worry about the first meeting and what to expect? How much will it all cost? If the answer is yes then you have been using the wrong companies!

 

Argo was established to be different;  to care about you, to listen to you and provide a service that looks after you.  We know that life can be hard at times and we want to provide you with the support and back up you need to live a fun packed life, not just exist.  We are here to take the worry off your shoulders.  By sorting out legal and financial paperwork and obtaining advice at the right time pressures and stress can be alleviated.  Most importantly, we restore the balance within families so that relatives can remain as a loved one and not as your care teams or bankers.  We support the whole family as we understand that life's unforeseen obstacles like illness, or even the death of a loved one, will affect everyone.

 

Yes we write wills, prepare lasting powers of attorney, administer estates and provide advice on trusts and care funding but we are so much more than that. Our legal team are great at making the complex simple, ensuring that you understand exactly what you are signing and giving you the time you need to understand and make decisions.  In addition to the legal stuff we also look after you.  We help with benefit applications, arrange care packages, support with the management of finances and health issues, take you on amazing days out.  Our clients love our day trips to the Ritz for afternoon tea or to Buckingham Palace!  We have a dedicated social and wellbeing team to do this.  Our legal and social and wellbeing team support each other to provide an amazing service for our clients.

 

We want you to become part of our Argo family.  We do not want to see you once and never see you again.  We want to be here when you need us so you know you always have someone to turn to.

We spend money every year insuring our car and providing breakdown cover just in case but what happens if we breakdown.

Powers

of Attorney

Losing your capacity does not have to mean losing control. 

It is a myth that it is too early to prepare. It's never too early. 

Court of Protection

When a person lacks capacity it is still possible to look after their finances, health, make a will, gift money and other things.

Why not check what the Court can do?

Social and wellbeing

If you get to the stage when managing your financial, social and wellbeing needs are causing a problem why not have some help in sorting out the things that cause you stress?

Let's see what we can help with.

We mostly think of our legacy in terms of the money or property that we intend to leave behind and pass on to our friends and relatives. But a legacy can actually be anything given or received including things like values, beliefs, or attitudes. You share these things during your lifetime and pass these on to those close to you.  Have your children and grandchildren inherited your glass half full look on life and your belief that you always can fill it up more?

Your legacy is not just about your will.  It is how you have protected your family's future when you are no longer around and the life lessons you see they have learned.   Yes you can leave a legacy by giving a lump sum of your estate to someone but how much more value will this gift be if the recipient uses it in a way that accords with the principles you have instilled in them.

Would you not like your legacy to last for generations?

Our podcast section of argo Live! is where we share information that can help your make that decision or just to take away all those myths you have heard!
