    Sarah Horton


    I am thrilled to have joined Brethertons as a Partner in the Wills, Trusts & Probate team.

    I qualified as a solicitor in 2008 and have specialised in Wills, Trusts, Probate, Powers of Attorney and estate administration since then. I assist customers in all of these areas, from the straightforward to the complex. I also qualified as a member of The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) in October 2014.

    As a solicitor in this department, my areas of practice include the following:-

    • Will drafting
    • Estate administration and distribution, including inheritance tax calculations
    • Intestacy administration
    • Trust creation, administration and distribution
    • Advice on all aspects of probate related UK taxation and reliefs
    • Lasting Power of Attorney advice, completion and registration
    • Court of Protection Deputy applications

      I really enjoy my job and take great pride in my role – I am a compassionate, patient, diligent person and really value being able to work closely with my customers, understand their unique circumstances and provide support in what can be difficult topics to deal with.

      Experience and Accreditations

    • Gained an LL.B (Hons) in 2004
    • Studied the Legal Practice Course at The College of Law in 2005
    • Qualified as a Solicitor in 2008
    • Became a full TEP member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) in 2014
    • Became an associate member of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) in 2017

    As a member of STEP, I adhere to the STEP Code for Will Preparation in England & Wales and the STEP Standard Provisions.

    When I am not at work, I enjoy time with my young children and husband, bike riding, swimming and exploring. If I am ever treated to a night off, I love going to live comedy!
