I joined Irwin Mitchell in 1999 as a paralegal dealing specifically with writing wills. I qualified as a solicitor in 2005 and was made Associate the same year. I am now a Senior Associate within the Tax Trusts & Estates Team.
I have day to day management & supervision of the wills and probate teams as well as taking care of my own clients. My areas of expertise include:
- Administration of estates
- Tax planning
- Trust advice & deeds
- Deeds of Variation
- Powers of Attorney and Lasting Powers of Attorney.
I am also a full member of the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners (STEP).
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
Helping people at a difficult time in their lives when a relative or close friend has died.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I'm passionate about fitness - I'm a keen gym member and runner.
