A bit about me

Supporting people, especially at a time of real need and transition, is important to me, and my work brings into people’s lives when they are facing challenges, whether administering someone’s estate, helping them to draft their wills or set up Lasting Powers of Attorney.

Business owners, farmers and trustees are all among my clients, both English-and Welsh-speaking, and I am happy to advise on trusts and tax issues as well as on wills and LPAs in both languages.

Outside work I love meeting family and friends and walking my dog Murphy; travelling will definitely be back on my agenda now too.

Want to know more?

Make your wishes known – whatever your plans are, make sure you communicate these with the individuals they will affect.

Don’t be afraid to have discussions early and gaining legal expertise from the start.

Be open minded – we are here to support and help.

Why do I need a will?
A will allows you to spell out your wishes clearly. If you do not have a will, the law of intestacy applies, removing the control from you.

Why is a Lasting Power of Attorney required?
Lasting Powers of Attorneys (LPAs) are like insurance policies; you arrange for them to be registered just in case they are required. An LPA allows you to appoint someone (or more than one person) to deal with your property and financial affairs or make decisions in relation to your health and welfare.

If we have been together for many years, do we have a common law marriage?
No, there is no such thing as ‘common law marriage’ under the laws of England and Wales.
