I enjoy helping clients through what can often be challenging and emotional times in their lives. I will support you throughout and look forward to building a strong relationship and being your trusted adviser.

How can I help you?

I am a solicitor in the Wills, Trusts, Tax and Probate team here at Tees. I can assist with a range of issues including:

  • Court of Protection work
  • Creation and Administration of Trusts
  • Estate & Tax Planning
  • Lasting Powers of Attorney
  • Probate
  • Registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney
  • Wills


Delivering what you really need

Many of us do not like to think about what might happen later in life or the challenges we may face. I will work with you to identify your needs and objectives, pre-empting the issues which may arise and provide you with clear advice about the best way to proceed.

With this in mind, I will keep you regularly updated on progress relating to all stages of your matter and will do everything I can to achieve a successful outcome for you in a personalised, fast and friendly manner. In addition, I can draw on the specialist expertise of my colleagues should you require assistance with contested probate, family matters or assistance with residential property.


What else should you know?

I studied French and Spanish at King’s College London before completing the Graduate Diploma in Law and Legal Practice course. I have a Masters in Professional Legal Practice. I spent a number of years volunteering and working for Citizens Advice which I found invaluable. I also mentor a number of law students at the University of Law and BPP.

I am a member of our Corporate and Social Responsibility Committee and I sit on the committee of the Cambridge District Law Society.
