I currently head up the Wills and Inheritance team and have over 33 years’ experience across the whole spectrum of private client work. I specialise in Trusts, Tax/Estate Planning, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Elderly Client issues, Court of Protection, Wills and the administration of estates.
Having initially qualified as a Legal Executive, I carried on with my studies to become a solicitor. I'm also a fully accredited member of both Solicitors for the Elderly and the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP), which reflects my wide experience in Elderly Client issues and Taxation/Trust issues. In addition to this, I am also a practising Notary Public and am able to complete documentation for use around the world.
I am proud to be a Dementia Friends Champion and am the current Chair of the Alzheimer’s Society Derbyshire Dementia Action Alliance. I have given public presentations on behalf of major charities such as Mencap, Multiple Sclerosis and the Alzheimer’s Society, and regularly assist local community organisations and charities.
I am married with two children and enjoy reading, music, riding my motorbike (although I sadly got tired of "repairing" my classic Italian motorbike), indoor climbing, walking in the Peak District and generally being outdoors.
