About me

Whether you need to make a will or want to better understand how to protect your finances, I can help you to ensure your family are secure in the event of death or incapacity.

The world of inheritance tax and probate is often complex, and the arrangements that should be put in place to look after your estate often need to be as well. I’ll help you decide the best course of action, make sure you understand exactly how these measures will help you and your family, and suggest practical steps that will ensure your wishes are carried out properly.

While I work with families, business owners, land owners, I have a special interest in helping farmers and local agricultural families, and I’m passionate about our local countryside. In my spare time, I’m a keen horse rider.

I am a full member of STEP.
