Profile / Experience
I am a Director of Wills and Probate at Duncan Lewis. I also specialise in clinical negligence claims and motoring offences. I deal with all aspects of wills and probate including, but not limited to, drafting wills to include a wide range of complicated situations; advising in relation to any inheritance tax which may be due from the estate; gathering in the estate of a loved one when they have passed away, dealing with the tax situation in both taxable and non-taxable estates, and handling the affairs of a loved one who has died without making a will. In addition to the above, I also specialise in handling Powers of Attorney matters relating to both health and welfare and finance and property.
I carry out work for the employment department at Duncan Lewis, with a particular focus on settlement (compromise) agreements. Additionally, I have extensive experience in dealing with both non-litigated and litigated clinical negligence claims as well as considerable experience in representing clients who have been accused of committing motoring offences.
I am a member of the Society of Trusts and Equity Practitioners and am currently working towards my full qualification.
I am fluent in French, Spanish and Italian and have been able throughout my legal career to facilitate the successful communication between my firm and Clients from the above communities.
