I believe it’s important to understand my client’s needs and objectives in order to provide clear, practical advice. I always endeavour to understand the whole picture to provide my clients with tailored advice. I am based in our Colchester office and am available for a free 15 minute chat over the phone on 01206 217360
I enjoy meeting with clients and helping them through difficult situations, particularly following a bereavement. Work in the Wills, Trusts and Probate team is varied and I enjoy identifying the issues and coming up with potential solutions and options available to my clients.
My work involves preparing wills, trusts, and probate applications, administering estates, preparing and registering lasting powers of attorney, the registration of enduring powers of attorney, and tax and estate planning.
I obtained a History degree from Exeter University before converting to law to complete the Graduate Diploma in Law and going on to obtain a Law degree. I trained at a law firm based in their Bishop’s Stortford and Cambridge offices, qualifying as a solicitor in September 2014. Throughout my training contract I also gained experience in rural, commercial property and employment law. I am a Dementia Friend and provide advice and guidance to elderly clients and their families, also advising clients requiring estate and succession planning, in particular relating to business assets.
In my free time I enjoy reading, shopping, eating out and spending time with my friends, family and my Dachshund, called Simon!
