Gavin Prideaux Williams 

I am a Legal Consultant and owner of GPW Trusts, qualified by examination as an Associate Member of the Institute of Professional Willwriters 
I am bound by the strict Code of Conduct of The Institute of Professional Willwriters and STEP guidelines via my association with Countrywide Tax & Trust Corporation 
I carry £2 million of professional indemnity insurance to protect you 
I attend Continuing Professional Development seminars throughout the year 
I have been vetted by the Criminal Records Bureau as fit and proper 
 
I am based near Chester and cover the whole of England and Wales. 
 
Having spent my working life in customer focused roles I have a thorough understanding of customer’s needs. 
 
It is important to me to put those needs at the forefront of everything I do. Choosing to work with me will mean that I am available when you want me to be and at a location to suit you. 
 
Professionalism doesn't have to be old fashioned and stuffy, so you'll find me approachable, easy to talk to and more than willing to convert all the legal jargon into plain, everyday English that everyone understands.

Brian Murphy 

 
Brian joined GPW Trusts as an Estate Planning Consultant in February 2020 following a career in Financial Services and Estate Planning within various companies. 
 
After completing our required foundation training Brian was keen to attend our more advanced training programmes to allow him to deal with more complex Estates and Inheritance Tax planning. 
 
Brian is highly motivated to ensure that clients have the correct Estate Planning solution for their needs. 
He is based on the Wirral with the majority of his clients in the Wirral, Cheshire, Merseyside and Manchester areas although he will be happy to visit clients throughout England and Wales. 
 
Brian can be contacted at brian@gpwtrusts.co.uk office 0151 630 3999 and mobile 07973 178081 
 
"We found Brian to be helpful, discreet and courteous. He went out of his way to complete work for us in what was quite a difficult time due to lockdown restrictions. We have already recommended his services to family and friends." 
F and L , Manchester 
 
"Thanks Brian for all your time in explaining everything so that it made it clear and in a way that didn’t make us feel like you were putting pressure on us, as this usually gets our backs up and we’d not have done business with you. 
 
You managed to turn John from sceptic to believer in a very short space of time. Thanks very much." 
 
A and J , Poynton, Cheshire 
 
We initially spoke to Brian regarding our Wills back in February 2020. 
 
Brian came round and spoke to us about our circumstances and the options available that would suit our needs best. He clearly explained the products available and the benefits they offer. 
 
It’s a difficult situation to consider and whilst we weren’t the easiest clients to get answers from, Brian remained in touch to patiently answer all our questions. 
 
Now we have everything in place, it’s given us peace of mind that our loved ones (which includes the pets!), our finances and our personal possessions will be taken care of should the worst ever happen. 
 
We also have peace of mind that GPW Trusts will act in our best interests to ensure our wishes are carried out and CTTC will act as Trustee if the children are too young to act as Trustees themselves.

Tina Timmins 

Tina joined GPW Trusts in July 2020 as an Estate Planning Consultant following a 16-year career at Blunts Solicitors in Macclesfield. 
 
Tina adds to the strength of the team with her in-depth knowledge of Probate. She covers all areas of Estate Planning - Wills, Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Deputyship (Court of Protection) and Probate. 
 
Tina will soon be working from our new Macclesfield office covering the Macclesfield and East Cheshire area. Until the office opens (late summer 2020) Tina will be working from home and is available for client appointments by phone, Zoom or in home visits. 
 
Tina has a positive, can-do attitude and is very loyal to her clients. Even during the liquidation of the company she previosly worked for in the middle of the COVID-19 lock down she was more concerned about her clients than herself! A rare trait and one we highly value at GPW Trusts. 
 
Tina can be contacted at tina@gpwtrusts.co.uk Mobile 07746 777760 Office 01625 881167 www.gpwtrusts.co.uk 
 
"We can't thank you enough for everything that you have done for us and I would especially like to thank Tina for the many Will Week appointments and Sunflower Centre talks you have given which have helped so many of our patients at a real time of need" 
Kate and all the team at East Cheshire Hospice 
 
" A heartfelt thanks to you Tina for everything you've done for me over the last decade. Don't know what I'd have done without you."
