Meet your private client solicitor
How did you come to specialise in this area of law?
After spending the first 7 years of my career in Conveyancing I decided to change specialities, I’ve always been interested in people and find the client contact in this area perfect.
What misconceptions do people have about this area of law?
That it’s depressing. While we can deal with seriously ill clients it is nice to know that we can put into place their final wishes
What part of the work do you particularly enjoy?
The client contact and seeing clients that come in with an idea as to what they want to achieve and being able to ensure that these wishes take place.
If you weren’t working in law, what would you do?
Working on my book while drinking wine in the mountains somewhere.
What advice would you give someone coming to see a Lawyer?
Ensure that you have as many details of family to hand as possible before coming to visit, have an idea who you want to benefit under your will and don’t be nervous we are here to help you.
