About me:

I’m a qualified Solicitor working with the Tax, Trust & Estates team and am currently based at the New Mills office.

I advise clients on the preparation of their Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney. I also guide clients through what is an emotionally difficult time when dealing with a loved one’s estate. I am empathetic, supportive and deal with the estate in a caring and practical manner.

When a client does not have the capacity to deal with their affairs themselves, I help guide them and their families through the Court of Protection process to allow them to make decisions in respect of their Property and Finances and their Health and Welfare.

Key cases:

  • I have helped clients who have unfortunately been unable to look after their own affairs and also have no loved ones to help them to put their affairs in order. I have done this through the Court of Protection process and allowed them to access their monies and helped apply for benefits on their behalf and protected their assets for them

 

  • Tailored client’s specific requests in terms of their Wills to make sure their wishes are correctly recorded and also helped tailor their Will to consider care fees in the future.
My top tip:

It is never too early to consider making a Will and once you have made one always remember to re-visit it to make sure it is up to date where possible.
