I am a Chartered Legal Executive specialising in Wills, Probate applications, the administration of estates, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Enduring Powers of Attorney and Deputyship applications.
I have experience of preparing Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney and making applications to the Court of Protection for the appointment of a Deputy for persons lacking mental capacity to manage their affairs. My work mainly consists of non-taxable estates, although I do have some experience of dealing with larger taxable estates.
Through Solicitors for the Elderly I have experience of working with older clients. I am a good listener and very patient when clients are considering important decisions about their future.
I qualified as a Fellow of the institute of Legal Executives in 2003. I became a member of Solicitors for the Elderly in 2009 and have also undertaken Dementia Friends training in March 2017. In 2019 I was admitted as a CILEx Probate Practitioner.
