I have worked in law for 21 years. For the last 17 years I've specialised in administering estates and advising clients on the complexities of dealing with a person’s affairs after their death. I'm able to give advice and guidance on the legal and tax issues that come with a deceases estate.
I qualified as a Chartered Legal Executive in 2009.
What inspired you to get into the law?
I started as a legal secretary and quickly realised that I wanted to have a career in law. I was supported by the firm and studied and worked full time to achieve my qualification as a Chartered Legal Executive.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
The ability to be able to help families at a difficult time in their lives and to make the process as painless as possible.
What do you do away from the office?
I enjoy spending time with my family.
"Thank you for the professional, efficient manner in which Judy Watson (Irwin Mitchell) administered this estate. I was particularly impressed by her immediate response to any question, situation and work that arose throughout the process. There was no delay in dealing with every aspect of this work. I would be happy to recommend Irwin Mitchell to my friends and associates in relation to Probate and Estate Administration." - 5* Trustpilot review
