I have been a partner at QualitySolicitors Hopleys GMA since 2009. I gained my Law Degree at Leeds University and went on to specialise in Civil Litigation, Probate and Wills. I can assist individuals in planning for the future, from advising on the importance of wills and caring for those who are no longer able to look after their own affairs.
I also manage our successful personal injury department advising on accidents at work, road traffic accidents and tripping and slipping cases. We aim to achieve the best outcome for your case. I can advise on the potential success of any case and where appropriate obtain insurance to cover the costs. We are able to complete cases on a no-win no-fee basis so call me if you have a potential case.
In my free time I enjoy going Skiing with my family and playing tennis.

In this blog we look at what trusts are and how they work, some of the different types of trust, calculating tax on trusts and getting the right advice. The rules surrounding inheritance tax planning are complex, and so it’s best to get tailored advice before deciding what’s right for you.
Almost two fifths (39%) of over 40s in Wales don’t know what the term probate means, 78% admit they wouldn't know where to start- the highest in the UK. Over half (53%) don’t understand that executors need to settle debts.
