I am a Partner and Solicitor at Bolt Burdon, specialising in residential property work, and leading one of our residential property teams.
I qualified in 1999 and since then have dealt with the full spectrum of residential property work. I have dealt with everything imaginable from multi million pound portfolio purchases to beach huts and chalets. I also have a keen interest in providing quality advice on equity release mortgages.
Prior to joining Bolt Burdon, I set up and managed award winning residential property teams. Very often the key to setting up good teams is to ensure they deliver exceptional client care and are continually looking for improvements and advances.
I thrive on the fast pace and adrenaline of residential property cases and enjoy reconnecting with old clients, and getting to know new ones. I am conscientious, thorough, dedicated and spend time ascertaining what matters most to those individuals or organisations for whom I act. Whilst technology can assist with the legal process, I firmly believe that clients should be at the heart of everything I do hence the reason why my focus is on communication, accessibility and quality advice. With over twenty years experience in the law, during which I have helped thousands of clients, I have developed and honed skills as a trouble shooter on difficult or complex cases.
I firmly believe in the adage – a healthy body; a healthy mind, and try to stay as active as I can. I have been a sports enthusiast since childhood, and whilst the days of competitive participation are, sadly over, my support and interest have not waned. I am an avid follower of the national football, rugby and athletics teams, attending fixtures and meets wherever possible. I also support Essex Cricket and am a long suffering, but nonetheless devoted, West Ham fan.
I enjoy live music, concerts, comedy shows, theatre and films along with family time, walking the dog, fresh air and the wonderful scenery that this country has to offer. When I am not active, I relax by cooking, entertaining, reading and writing poetry and it is a consequence of enjoying cookery so much, that I have to stay as active as I can!
