Biography

I am a Paralegal in the Wills, Trust and Estate Disputes Team in Leeds. I have experience in dealing with a variety of cases, including:

  • Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependents) Act 1975 Claims‚Äč – I am currently involved in various Inheritance Act claims in which we act for people who feel that they have not been reasonably financially provided for under a deceased person’s will. The clients that I have worked with include spouses, cohabitees, minor and adult children, and disabled children and I have worked on large to mid-value claims. I also have experience in acting for the defending parties in such claims.
  • Will Validity Claims – I have worked on numerous cases involving challenges to the validity of wills on the basis of a lack of testamentary capacity and undue influence. I have experience in dealing with such cases from a claimant and defendant perspective.

What inspired you to get into law?

Law is an area which affects everyone in some aspect of their daily lives, and it is an area which is ever-growing. I have always been keen to pursue a career in a field which is progressive and developing every day, which certainly keeps the role interesting!

What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?

The most rewarding aspect of my role is being in a position to assist people in their times of need, and obtaining results that will improve their lives substantially. Being in this area means that I often encounter people who are bereaved and who have been left in very difficult positions. Securing a result which will have a positive impact on clients’ lives is certainly the most rewarding aspect of this role.

What do you do away from the office?

I am an avid musical theatre fan, and enjoy watching shows on the West End, Broadway and local theatres.
