“I decided to look into Legacy Planning having heard Diane speak at a Pre-retirement Seminar organised by my employer.
Diane gave very clear explanations and suggested scenarios I would otherwise not have considered. I can’t overemphasise how valuable that was. As a result, I’ve ended up with a solution tailored to my needs and circumstances, more than just a Will, but nothing more than I need.
Throughout, Diane made the process simple and straightforward. Thank again for your help with this.”

“Diane Bush has been extremely kind towards my elderly mum whilst arranging her Wills, Trust and Legacy Planning. She has dealt with her as any daughter would wish their mum to be dealt with, while still remaining very professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending Diane to anyone.”
“Just to let you know how happy we have been with the service we have received from you as an individual and your Company.
It was important for us to ensure protection of our assets and make sure they would pass to our bloodline relatives (although hopefully not too soon!).
The Family Trust and associated mirror wills were perfect for our needs. Together with the Lasting Power of Attorney documents, we now feel that our assets and future are protected as fully as possible.”
M & S Byrne, Southport
“I would like to recommend Diane Bush for the manner in which she has conducted the setting up of my trust fund.
During every meeting, I have found Diane to be very knowledgeable and professional, and her friendly manner makes what could be an upsetting task much easier to deal with.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Diane to others.”
K Smith, Cheshire
“I have been giving my legacy planning some careful thought for many years and been offered various pointers and advice during that time. Nobody however, was able to support me clearly, given the regular changes in law and my specific requirements.
I was fortunate enough to meet Diane Bush at True Bearing Legal Services through close friends whilst witnessing their legacy.
From day one, Diane was very diligent, clear and open to questions & so I felt immediately confident that I would use True Bearing Legal Services.
Diane has treated me as an individual and took the time to listen carefully to my goals and often raised questions for me to consider that I hadn’t necessarily covered. My whole family is now engaged and informed of my legacy planning because of her attitude and approach. She has been thoroughly supportive and was free to advise me at any stage throughout the past few months.
Whilst I respect the professional work that True Bearing do, it is Diane that I fully bought-in to, she has given me the confidence to bring my wishes to fruition and I would recommend her services in a heartbeat.
I cannot thank her enough for helping me to fulfil my lifelong dream & I hope she is recognised for her hard work and contribution. Heartfelt, genuine thanks from me and all my family.”
Sadhna Bharat, Runcorn
“I sought True Bearing legal services to set up legacy plans following a devastating critical illness diagnosis to my Wife. Part way through the legacy planning process, my wife passed away unexpectedly. The support and help I received from True Bearing Legal Services, and in particular from Diane Bush was invaluable. I was able to contact her anytime during difficult times when I was either at hospital, out of hours or via email with my queries and concerns about what was happening.
I highly recommend True Bearing and Diane Bush for helping to arrange legacy planning no matter what your circumstances are, and encourage people to make plans as life can change unexpectedly. Once it’s all set up correctly, the feeling of security and peace of mind is very reassuring.”
