The Legal 500 - The Clients Guide to Law Firms

Victoria Gratton


I specialise in advising and assisting clients with matters relating to contested probate, inheritance act claims and court of protection applications. I provide clients with clear and concise advice in what can be a difficult time in their life. I am based in our Colchester office, and am available for a free 15 minute chat over the phone on 01206 217628.

I chose this career path because even though it is a complex area of law, it is client focused. I wanted to be responsible for helping people find a solution at a vulnerable time and resolving their problems and disputes.

In my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors with my horses and dogs, as well as travelling so I can experience different cultures, learning languages – I am fluent in Portuguese, and spending time with my family and friends.

Our Court of Protection & Inheritance Disputes team offers specialist advice, in a niche and complex area of law, with empathy and a focus on achieving a just outcome for our clients. The area we work in can be very time consuming and emotionally difficult for our clients, so we work alongside them to guide them through the process as efficiently and easily as we can. We are committed to the constructive resolution of disputes by mediation or negotiation wherever possible, only resorting to the courts where absolutely appropriate.
