    As a Partner in the Wills, Trusts and Probate team I assist customers with matters surrounding their personal affairs. This includes Will drafting, Grant applications, the administration of estates and the preparation of Lasting Powers of Attorneys. I have a keen interest in Court of Protection work from the preparation of applications for the appointment of Deputies and Trustees to assisting Deputies with the day to day administration of managing a person’s affairs.

    I qualified as a Solicitor in August 2015 after obtaining a Law Degree by studying part time with the Open University, completing the Legal Practice Course at the National College of Law Training and training with Brethertons LLP for two years. Whilst studying for nine years, I worked in the legal sector covering different areas of law and have previously held legal roles at a sole practitioner’s firm and the Crown Prosecution Service. I have worked for Brethertons LLP since April 2010.

    I was ranked as a “Key Lawyer” in the 2021 Legal 500 rankings and I am a member of Solicitors for the Elderly, CoPPA and I am a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).

    I enjoy meeting customers face to face and I am really passionate about helping people through what can be a difficult and emotional time.

    Customers say that I am “very approachable and deal with issues sensitively”, and that I “respond promptly to queries ” and am “clear, reasoned and concise”.

    Outside of work, I am the President of the Warwickshire Junior Lawyers Division. The group allows young lawyers in the area to share experiences with like-minded individuals through workshops, seminars and social activities. I also enjoy going to the gym, running and keeping up to date with my friends and family.
