I have worked in law for 30 years and for most of those years I have specialised in working with clients who are trying to sort out the affairs of someone who has recently died. I guide my clients through the maze of administrative requirements as well as legal and tax issues which might arise. Every client’s needs are different. I may help some clients in specific areas only, whereas others may want me to deal with everything to remove the stress and worry from them. No two matters are the same and I continue to see new challenges.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I did not start out with the intention of working in law – but after working in a solicitors office, you could say law found me and I knew very early on that I wanted to pursue a career in law.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
Getting to know my clients and their families and being their first port of call for any problem. Even if their problem is not within my specialism they know I can offer help from colleagues within the firm.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
Golf – especially mixed friendly matches representing my club.
I qualified as a Chartered Legal Executive in 1993.
