I'm based in the Sheffield office and specialise in probate issues, inheritance tax and Probate Registry applications for Grants of Representation. I have 13 years experience in this field.
My specialty is dealing with complex applications to the Probate Registry such as dealing with unusual family situations, international jurisdictions and missing legal documentation.

"I appointed Irwin Mitchell to deal with obtaining probate and advise on my wife's will. Both Thomas Pape and Rachel Williams dealt with the procedure, made more complicated by the COVID restrictions, in a thoroughly professional yet kind and understanding way making the process much less stressful than it would otherwise have been. I would certainly recommend Irwin Mitchell, Thomas and Rachel to any one in the same situation" - 5* Trustpilot review
