I am Head of the Wills, Probate and Trusts Services and deal with the day to day management of that team.
I specialise in the drafting of wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney, advising on care fees and dealing with the administration of estates. My clients are wide ranging across all age groups and include individuals, couples and families.
I have a particular interest in the administration of estates, including those with agricultural and/or business property. The administration of estates involves varied activities from valuing and collating assets to making final payments on the estate and organising the full preparation of accounts - no two cases are the same.
I enjoy meeting and interacting with people and relish the diversity that this area of law provides to me.
I also get a lot of satisfaction from helping elderly clients with difficult matters, as well as supporting bereaved clients, when compassion and understanding is essential.
I am a member of Solicitors for the Elderly and hold a level one certificate in British Sign Language. I am also currently studying to obtain the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners Diploma in Trusts and Estates.
I am a full accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE).
