I give confident and straight forward advice, whilst also being sensitive to the particular needs of every individual client. I have many clients who return to me for advice on a regular basis. I am based in our Colchester office, and am available for a free 15 minute chat over 01206 217364.
I specialise in giving advice on long term care matters and NHS continuing health care. I also advise in detail on the preparation of wills and lasting powers of attorneys.
I am an associate member of Solicitors for the Elderly and I hold Higher Rights of Audience: Solicitor-Advocate (Higher Courts Civil).
I used to represent children in the care system and so went to court on a frequent basis. When Birkett Long stopped doing care work, I moved to Wills, Trusts and Probate. I have therefore always advised and represented people who may sometimes be vulnerable. I love working with older people and advising them, so as to ensure the best possible planning for their future.
I volunteer at St Helena Hospice in Colchester and also in my free time I enjoy walking, and travelling to see the world.
