Graduated from the University of St Andrews in 1987 and qualified as a solicitor in 1992
I assist clients, particularly the elderly, to plan for the future and put their affairs in order by taking out Lasting Powers of Attorney. I assist families making applications for Deputyship to the Court of Protection and I advise in relation to care fees and NHS Continuing Care Applications. I act as a professional Deputy and attorney and manage the property and affairs of clients who lack capacity.
I have special expertise in acting for clients who lack mental capacity and who are suffering from mental illnesses, including severe and enduring mental illness and significant learning disabilities. Increasingly I am called upon by the Official Solicitor to act for vulnerable adults in health and welfare cases before the Court of Protection.
When I’m not at Gotelee, I’m a keen amateur artist.
