I am an experienced litigator who specialises in disputes that arise after a person has died.
I guide individuals through the emotional and legal problems they face when a loved one has passed away. I strive to find practical and cost effective solutions for my clients. I am committed to the cause, I leave no stone unturned and will work tirelessly to do the very best for my clients.
I have strong and specialist experience in dealing with a wide range of post death disputes. My experience includes dealing with disputes such as, those under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, disputes in relation to the validity of Wills, executor and trustee disputes and disputes in relation to promises of property or assets to individuals before death. I have a particular interest and specialism in dealing with disputes concerning the disposal of bodies.
In addition, I have a breadth of experience in dealing with contentious Court of Protection matters, including, contested deputy appointments, deputy and attorney removal and contested statutory Wills.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
I have enjoyed debating and arguing from an early age. I always wanted a career where I could make a difference to the lives of people and a career in law was the perfect combination.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
I pride myself on being a lawyer who people can rely on to help them navigate through what often is a very emotionally and upsetting time. The most rewarding aspect is seeing my clients at the end of a dispute with a successful resolution, happy and relieved that their case is over so they can move on and properly grieve for the loss of their loved one.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?
I enjoy long countryside walks with my cockapoo and husband. I like to keep fit by running and training in the gym.
