I specialize in drafting Wills, Tax Planning and the administration of estates. I assist people in planning for later life, dealing with Court of Protection work and assessment of challenges to care charges.
I appreciate that my clients approach me during the most difficult times in their lives and they need clear and concise advice.
Each case is dealt with in a sensitive and professional manner. I ensure that Executors and Personal Representatives of estates are fully protected, that every Will is robustly drafted and that clients receive bespoke advice tailored for their particular circumstances.
I am proud to be the head of our Wills & Probate Department, which is a close knit team dedicated in making the legal process as smooth as possible. Clients are very nervous when they come into the office but they are soon put at ease.
I am a full member of the Society of Trust & Estates Practitioners and a member of the Law Society Private Client Section. I am also appointed as a Deputy by the Court of Protection to administer the financial affairs of several clients.
I meet with clients at any of our offices, in hospitals, hospices and care homes or arrange home visits as required.
When not working, I spend my time planning travels abroad, reading and watching classic black and white films.
