Hello, I joined the firm as a Trainee Solicitor in 2005, after gaining a distinction in the Legal Practice Course at Chester College of Law. On qualification, I became a member of our well respected Wills, trusts & Estates team and in 2020 was delighted to be appointed as Head of Department.
I advise on all aspects of private client work, including wills inheritance tax planning, planning for care home fees, asset protection and estate administration. I also deal with Court of protection work. This includes making Deputyship applications and advising on the preparation, registration and use of Lasting Powers of Attorney and Enduring Powers of Attorney.
I also advice clients on trust creation and administration including the administration of charitable trusts.
outside work, i enjoy life with my husband and three children. My particular interests are music and travel.
