I'm a solicitor in Gatwick specialising in Wills and Estates. I have experience in matters involving:
- Lifetime Planning
- Lasting Powers of Attorney
- Deputyship Applications
- Registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney
- Estate Administration, including those with foreign assets, complex family dynamics, and Trusts.
I qualified as a solicitor in 2013.
"As executor of my late mother's will, I found the prospect of carrying out her wishes and all the duties that go with it quite daunting. I was fortunate to hear of Sophie Smith at Irwin Mitchell, and immediately appointed her to undertake the task at hand. I couldn't have found a more dedicated person to act for me, and deal with the administration of my mother's estate.
During the twenty months that followed, Sophie worked tirelessly through all the problems that lay ahead. My mother's house sale was prolonged through Brexit and COVID complications. However, Sophie maintained a thoughtful and caring attitude throughout whilst maintaining communications with me here in New Zealand. I highly recommend Sophie Smith at Irwin Mitchell to anyone who requires a professional and dedicated private wealth solicitor." - 5* Trustpilot review

"Sophie Smith was terrific with us in very sad and frustrating times. Sophie was always sympathetic, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. It was great having her on our side against frustrating legislation in times of COVID when Government and financial institutions just don't communicate in any way whatsoever" - 5* Trustpilot review
