I qualified as a solicitor in 2006 and have specialised in wills, probate and trusts ever since.
My main areas of specialism are drafting wills (including inheritance tax planning and planning for the possibility of being in a care home in the future), deceased’s estates, trust management and preparation and mental capacity issues, including lasting powers of attorney and deputyship applications. I also have experience in managing clients’ finances when no suitable friend or family member is available, either as their attorney or deputy.
I enjoy assisting clients in planning for their futures and being able to offer help to them during difficult times.
I am a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and a full accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE).
Note: The STEP Code for Will Preparation in England and Wales is a set of ethical principles that operate for the benefit of the client. Katie Wigham is a full member of STEP and therefore adheres to this code in the preparation of a will. Follow the link for further information on the STEP code. Read here.
