Based in our Woodbridge office I am a solicitor specialising in private client law including:
I qualified as a solicitor in 2001 and practised as a litigator before re-training as a private client lawyer four years ago. I joined Gotelee’s private client team in 2019. With my background in dispute resolution, I have a particular interest in Court of Protection applications, disputes in relation to Lasting Powers of Attorney/Enduring Powers of Attorney and probate disputes including challenges to the validity of Wills and claims under the Inheritance (Provision For Family and Dependants) Act 1975. I am an associate member of the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS) and am currently working towards full ACTAPS membership.
Outside of work I am a parent governor at a local primary school.
