I specialise in assisting clients in bringing and defending challenges for financial provision under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 claims. This is where clients, who fall into a specific class, feel they did not receive reasonable financial provision under a Will.
I also specialise in claims challenging the validity of a Will (on the basis of lack of testamentary capacity, undue influence, fraudulent calumny and knowledge and approval) and estate disputes including distribution disputes and applications to remove executors. While I have attended multiple hearings I also have experience resolving disputes by mediation.
What inspired you to get into law?
I had an interest in law and read law at university, I further expanded this interest by studying a Masters degree in Politics (Global Justice and Ethics).
I was inspired to work as a solicitor so to provide practical advice and solutions to help people resolve problems.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
It is rewarding to be able to resolve a case for a client in which I have helped to achieve a successful outcome.
