Profile / Experience

I am a Consultant Solicitor in the Civil Litigation, Wills and Probate and Family departments at Duncan Lewis Solicitors.

Civil Litigation
I specialise in all areas of private client work. I assist the civil litigation department in dealing with a number of contentious probate issues, this frequently includes;
  • Tolata claims
  • Possession proceedings
  • Debt action
  • Both individual and company disputes.
I pride myself in getting the best outcomes possible for clients in a timely and cost effective way and in my ability to give friendly, impartial advice and guidance. I am a capable and experienced litigator but also settle many matters without the need to put my clients through lengthy court proceedings, through the use of mediation and solicitor correspondence.

Wills and Probate
I genuinely care about my clients and empathise with them during what can be the most difficult time of their lives. I am able to explain complex matters of estate administration to the clients and assist them to make the probate administration less stressful. Most of my clients come with recommendations from previous clients and that satisfies me knowing I have done such a good job that I am recommended to my client's friends and family.

Areas I specialise in are as follows;
  • Administrations of estates,
  • Applications to court of protection
  • Court of protection disputes including capacity issues
  • Deputyship applications,
  • Estate planning and trusts,
  • Deed of variations,
  • Obtaining the grant of probate/letters of administration
  • Taxation for individuals
  • Wills
Family
Primarily I deal with divorce and finances and all children matters. My clients recognise that I care about each and every one of them and want to get them all the best outcome possible. I pride myself in doing all I can for my clients and going that extra mile to ensure they are as well as they can be when they are going through a difficult transition in their lives.
