Solicitor. Wills and Probate Team.
I have been a Solicitor for over fifteen years and a Trust and Estate Practitioner (TEP) of STEP (Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) for over ten years.
I undertake all areas of Private Client work such as Wills, Powers of Attorney, Elderly Client matters, Court of Protection, Tax Planning, Probate and Estate Administration.
I am practical in my approach to clients’ legal issues. I believe in providing clients with clear practical guidance of the steps and costs involved and the realistic outcomes a client may expect. Within this I aim to be supportive and sympathetic to clients when dealing with the loss of a loved one or when physical and mental health issues challenge everyday living.
Outside interests: I have two grown-up sons who still manage to keep me busy! I like to visit historic palaces and buildings and take an interest in history, especially the regency period. I like reading and making soft furnishings
I am a traditional secretary assisting Paula Jones and Wendy Beach in all areas of their work. I type and prepare their letters and documents, liaise with clients by phone and email and contact other solicitors and the courts concerning cases.
Outside interests; I love all types of music and I regularly go to music festivals all over the country and have seen many live bands.

Wills and Probate Team
I qualified in 1994 having studied Law and Spanish at Cardiff and Madrid Universities and chose to specialise in the area of Wills and Probate 15 years ago. I find this area of law particularly rewarding as each client has unique requirements. I enjoy getting to know my clients and working together to get the best outcome.
My area of law is very broad and interesting, and includes; drafting wills, creating Lasting Powers of Attorney, applications to the Court of Protection , administering estates after the death of a loved one. I also advise clients on Inheritance Tax and where there are assets held abroad.
Much of my work is recommended by satisfied existing clients and I often act for three generations of a family. Death and taxes affect all of us at some point and my aim is to provide practical clear advice and support in every case. I often hear “ That was not nearly as bad as I thought” after creating wills for clients. Dealing with the estate of a loved one can be overwhelming at a very difficult time. I provide general guidance for clients that are unsure about a particular matter or deal with an estate from arranging the funeral to the final distribution of assets. In all cases the matter will be handled sensitively and efficiently.
Outside Interests: I enjoy foreign travel and the Arts and try and combine the two wherever possible! I am passionate about the environment and wildlife and support my local wildlife trust whenever time permits.
