I love the day to day people contact that I get in my job; getting to know and help the different generations of families with planning for the future, with succession and the distribution of estates. I consider myself a people person and am at the end of the phone for all my clients, even if I haven’t heard from them in a while.

How can I help you? 

I qualified as a solicitor over 5 years ago and have worked in Chelmsford as a Wills, trusts, tax and probate specialist ever since. Working in the town has enabled me to forge close relations with other local advisors to deliver a really complete service. 

My work includes advising on all aspects of trust law; wills and succession planning, court of protection matters and powers of attorney (EPAs and LPAs)as well as all inheritance tax and capital tax issues. I am experienced in probate administration from complex business matters through to straightforward estate administration and the creation and management of trusts in Wills. 


Delivering what you really need 

I am happy to visit you at your home or residential home if required, and particularly if you are somewhat elderly or have mobility issues. Furthermore, I look forward to building a relationship with all my clients, from those who are younger who may have just started a family or got married, to those in their later years who want to ensure that their assets pass to their family as they wish. 

As a committee member of the Essex branch of STEP (The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) I am well regarded in the local professional community, and I am able to use my professional links to provide added value to my clients. It also means I can and point them in the right direction quickly and efficiently if Tees cannot help you. 


What else should you know? 

I am a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP). I have also presented to care home managers and residents on Lasting Powers of Attorney. I am also a keen fundraiser for local charities through my work with the local Round Table, and I am also a member of the local law society Cricket team.
