Why choose me

Achieving wishes for a client’s future and helping families to fulfil these wishes is why I enjoy practicing in this area of law. Working in private client law, my role is to help clients during very difficult periods of their lives and to put their minds at ease.

From wills to probate administration, I discuss the available options to help clients feel informed and in control of the decision-making process. My advice is tailored to their circumstances and I review my advice as the client’s personal situation changes.

Outside work, I enjoy swimming and reading.

Questions my clients ask me

You should appoint people that you trust to manage your affairs and deal with your estate in accordance with your wishes. Clients tend to appoint family members, but you can also appoint professional executors.

LPAs can be put in place to cover both your financial affairs and your health and welfare decisions. In your LPA, you appoint people (your attorneys) to act on your behalf in case you lose capacity to make decisions yourself.

This will very much depend on the size and complexity of the estate. For a simple estate administration, it can take around six to nine months. However, if there is a property to be sold then it will likely take longer.
