As a Private Client Solicitor within the Wills, Trusts and Probate Team, I’m here to help and guide you on any and all matters surrounding your personal affairs; from Will drafting and estate administration, to obtaining grants of Probate and Letters of Administration.
I’m also here to help you with life planning to protect your future and the future of your loved ones. After discussing your individual circumstances with you, I’ll draw up General and Lasting Powers of Attorney, and register them with the Office of the Public Guardian (a government body which protects people who don’t have the capacity to manage their own affairs). I’ll also advise you on the registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney, which were replaced with Lasting Powers of Attorney in 2007.
I’ll help you protect yourself and your family by preparing Declarations of Trust and Trust Deeds and administer Trusts. I’ll also guide you on applications to the Court of Protection in the case of someone who has lost capacity to manage their own affairs, and will advise on lifetime Inheritance Tax planning and estate planning.
I’m really passionate about helping people and families plan their futures and protect their loved ones, so I’m working towards completing a qualification with the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) which has a strict code of conduct promoting best practice amongst advisors.
Away from the office, my husband and I have two children and we enjoy doing family activities together at the weekends. We’ve recently visited the Butterfly Farm and Redwings Horse Sanctuary near Stratford upon Avon. I enjoy photography and I’m taking classes intermittently to learn what to do with my camera! I also enjoy going to the theatre and often go to the RSC performances in Stratford upon Avon
