I am a Partner and head of the Disputed Wills and Trusts Team.
Losing a loved one and then having to deal with the aftermath of a dispute regarding their estate is one of the worst experiences anyone will have to go through. Often, the dispute is between family members which makes it all the more tragic. I believe my job is to try and settle the dispute as quickly as I can on terms favourable to my client, not only for my client’s own peace of mind but also to keep the costs to a minimum.
I pride myself on always going the extra mile for my clients and ensuring that I carry as much of the stress and burden for them when dealing with their case.
I also act for all types of charities and appreciate the importance of protecting legacies left to them.
I have acted in a massively varied caseload relating to Wills, Probate and Trust disputes and claims brought under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 and I have extensive knowledge of these areas.
I also advise on Court of Protection proceedings, including Statutory Will applications and making and contesting Deputyship applications.
I am a full member of ACTAPS, a qualified Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) Associate, a committee member of ConTrA, who are a network for Contentious Trusts Solicitors and a member of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE).
I like to spend my free time taking long walks, relaxing at home, cooking and catching up with my family and friends.
