I help clients in two main areas of law, Wills and Administration of Estates.
I Joined Gotelee in 2001 after working for a national law firm for 6 years
Too many people never get round to making a Will, though they always mean to, but it really is a painless process! I have a down to earth approach and explain what a Will is all about in a way clients find makes it easy to understand.
I also help clients who have recently suffered a bereavement and need professional support through a difficult time. I help with probate and the administration of the deceased’s estate. This can be straightforward where the estate is uncomplicated. Sometimes it can be quite complicated, particularly where no Will was made by the deceased or there are taxation issues, but my job is to make sense of it all and complete the job.
