I am a Private Client Practitioner based in the Hailsham office of Barwells Solicitors since January 2017. Prior to this I worked in our Eastbourne office for nine years.
I grew up locally in Eastbourne and attended Bedes Prep school and Bedes Upper Dicker in Hailsham. Since joining Barwells I studied to become a Legal Executive; graduating in May 2015.
I aim to offer a professional yet friendly service and my Specialist areas include:-
Wills, Administration of Estates, Care Home and Asset Protection planning, Creation of Lasting Powers of Attorney, Registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney, Management of client's affairs, Court of Protection and Administration of Trusts. I have recently completed a variety of complex Wills and Estate Planning for owners of Agricultural land in the Sussex area. I also work frequently with high net worth Estates and Inheritance Tax.
I am always happy to have a no obligation telephone conversation or appointment and our glass fronted office in the centre of Hailsham town welcomes clients to call in and see a member of our team at their convenience.
I am a registered Dementia Friend with the Alzheimer's Society who aim to change the way that dementia is talked about and understood.
Keen supporter of local charities and I am actively involved with St Wilfrid's Hospice, both in and out of work and try to take part in events to raise funds for the Samaritans as and when I can. I was fortunate to win the ‘Readers Choice’ and highly commended for ‘Contribution to the Community’ at the East Sussex Women in Business awards 2017.
