This includes Will drafting, Grant applications, the administration of estates, the preparation of Lasting Powers of Attorneys and the registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney. I also have a keen interest in Court of Protection work and I am appointed as a Professional Deputy to a number of clients.
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. I have worked for Brethertons LLP since April 2010.
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 am also ranked as a “Key Lawyer” in the Legal 500 rankings.
I enjoy meeting clients face to face and I am really passionate about helping people through what can be a difficult and emotional time.
Clients say that I am “very approachable and deal with issues sensitively”, and that I “respond promptly to queries ” and am “clear, reasoned and concise”.
I am currently on maternity leave, please contact Leah Bignell in my absence.
