I’m an associate solicitor in the Wills, Trusts and Estates Disputes Team in our Gatwick office and also spend time with the team in Chichester.
I specialise in a range of disputes which may arise after someone has died, including:
- Will validity challenges
- Claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975
- Disputes between executors and/or beneficiaries
- Proprietary estoppel cases
I act for individuals and partnerships or companies nationally both in advancing and defending these claims.
I know this is a very emotionally fraught and often stressful time for my client and their family so I always aim to provide clear advice to help them achieve the best result for them. I always take their personal circumstances into consideration.
What inspired you to get into law?
I really enjoying working with clients to resolve disputes, particularly in this area of law as the outcome can be life changing and have a huge impact on the client’s family relationships and wellbeing
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
Successfully navigating my clients through litigation which can be tricky and emotional and reaching an outcome that allows the client to move forward.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
Working with the team at Irwin Mitchell - there is such a wide scope of knowledge in the team and a great ethos of working together to achieve fantastic results for clients.
What do you do away from the office?
I enjoy spending time with my young family and friends, a long walk and a pub lunch at the end of it.
