I specialise in drafting Wills, administering Trusts and Estates, inheritance tax planning and Court of Protection work including completion and registration of Lasting Powers of Attorney, registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney and applications to appoint financial Deputies.
My clients are at the heart of everything I do. Quite often my clients are going through a very hard time dealing with the loss of a loved one, or they are going through a time in their lives where they are becoming more forgetful and they want to ensure that everything is in place. These can be some of the most stressful and challenging times and by putting clients at the centre of all my work I am able to provide both legal knowledge and expertise but also the chance for them to talk about these situations with which they are faced.
I studied Law and Politics at Cardiff University from 2010 to 2013; and then completed the Legal Practice Course in 2014. I completed my Training Contract at a regional law firm in Newport, and qualified as a Solicitor in 2016.
