Specialist areas:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Probate
  • Lasting Powers of Attorney
  • Advising elderly clients

About me:

I bring a practical, efficient and equally important, a caring approach to this area of work, advising on the most appropriate way for clients to deal with their assets on death having given careful consideration to clients’ wealth and family circumstances. Equally, when I am approached by a client who has recently lost a loved one, I carefully and sensitively guide them through the process of dealing with the estate, making sure that the level of service we offer is suited to the clients’ requirements.

 

Key cases:

  • I successfully obtained the tax relief on a number of high value estates. Complex farming estates required careful investigation and a firm case put to the Revenue in respect of the available inheritance tax reliefs.
  • Successfully completed the administration of estates where all beneficiaries needed to be carefully guided through the process and communication kept equal with all parties due to internal family disputes.
  • I have acted for the clients’ Attorney or Deputy in all areas of the clients’ needs and often in close conjunction with the Court of Protection.

My top tip is never underestimate the importance of obtaining professional advice.
