Position Overview

Partner in Private Client Department and member of the Business Development Committee responsible for the future direction of the firm and for the running of the firm’s Hove office.

What I do and who my clients are

  • Estate administration
  • Complex Will drafting
  • Trust creation and administration
  • Formation and Registration of Powers of Attorney
  • Court of Protection and elderly client matters
  • Managing the general affairs of elderly clients
  • Inheritance tax advice and planning

I am a private client solicitor and member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP). I specialise in estate administration e.g. probate and intestacy, Will and Trust creation. I have fostered close links with other local firms such as accountants and IFA’s and work with them to meet my clients’ needs. I often find myself acting for large families where instructions are received from all generations of the family tree which is very rewarding.

My achievements and other appointments

I graduated from both University and Law School with First Class Honours and went on to study for a further professional qualification with STEP where I also achieved a Distinction. After qualifying as a solicitor in 2004 at another local law firm, I moved to Woolley Bevis Diplock in 2005 where I became a partner in 2007.

Professionally I take great satisfaction in looking after my clients and forging strong ties with the local community. I have also found that helping to steer the direction of the firm and ensuring its longevity has been highly rewarding.

...and finally

I am a keen badminton player, having played (to my horror!) now for over 25 years. I belong to three local clubs and have participated in various tournaments over the years at both a County and social level. I also enjoy reading, watching films, going to the theatre and conversing with friends and family over a nice bottle (or two) of wine!
