I joined the team at Purely Probate after more than 8 years as a Private Client solicitor in Somerset.
I have always enjoyed drafting Wills, whether simple or complex
I was attracted by Judith’s focus on putting the client’s needs at the heart of our work. The aspect of my work that I have always enjoyed the most is building relationships with clients, and helping to take away some of the burden and worry of paperwork at a difficult time following a bereavement. The team of staff at Purely Probate are friendly and down-to earth, so I know that clients will feel well looked after and in good hands.
You get a sense of a person’s story, and I enjoy trying to work out what is most important to them and how best to achieve their wishes. It can sometimes feel like a problem-solving puzzle and is rarely as simple as just deciding ‘who gets what’! I also enjoy the process of administering an estate and making sure all the necessary jobs are completed and all loose ends tidied up.
I have dealt with elderly client and mental capacity issues, including powers of attorney and deputyship applications.
I am looking forward to hearing some new stories and meeting some new families.
I live in the Chew Valley with my husband and two young children. I enjoy village life and am a Trustee of the local pre-school. I really enjoy dancing at Zumba classes, and when left to my own devices (which happens rarely these days!), I like nothing better than reading a good novel.
