I am a Chartered Legal Executive specialising in Private Client Law. My particular areas of specialism are:
Administration of Estates and Probate
Administration of Trusts
Lasting Power of Attorney
I qualified as a Chartered Legal Executive in 2013 but have worked in Private Client Law for over 13 years. I am also an Affiliate Member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).
My main area of expertise is Probate and the administration of Estates and Trusts. I have a wealth of experience, with regard to Intestate Estates (where the deceased has died without leaving a Will); advising clients in relation to the administration of Estates of high value, including complex Trusts, and addressing any taxation issues.
I enjoy the Client contact that my role brings. I pride myself on providing clear advice and building good rapport with my Clients, especially at what can be a very difficult time in their life.
When not at work I am busy with my family, enjoying outings and holidays. I attend the gym regularly and enjoy taking part in fitness classes.
