I am a solicitor at Amphlett Lissimore and work in the Private Client department. I specialise in Wills, Trusts, Probate, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Deputyship and Lifetime Estate Planning.

I enjoy helping and advising people on their Wills and Probate matters, and have a keen interest in the law of Trusts. My academic training has always been focused on the area of Private client which is the law relating to an individual.  

I offer a holistic and personalised approach as my client base is extremely varied from high net worth individuals to elderly clients at the early stages of their Dementia diagnosis. I assist families by providing advice on succession and estate planning, providing advice on how to pass assets to the next generation.

I am based in our Crystal Palace office, but regularly travel to our offices in Camberwell and Raynes Park to meet with clients. Home and hospital visits are also available upon request.

I recently attended at a local hospital to take instructions for a Will at the client’s bedside. Although my client had deteriorated rapidly she still had capacity and wanted me to put her mind at rest by writing down her wishes. I did so, at her bedside and the Will was executed. She died two days later, safe in the knowledge that her requests would be carried out correctly.  

I’m passionate about Law and I am an active member of its community. I am a committee member of the South London Law Society and the South London Law Society (Junior Lawyers Division) providing resources and interaction between industry professionals to encourage growth, learning and development. This year I also became a Dementia Friend alongside some of my colleagues in order to learn more about how best I could support my clients living with Dementia.
