Director, Private Client Services (Asset & Wealth Protection)
I have lived and worked in Hampshire and Surrey for over 25 years and am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives and a Professional Deputy. I initially trained with Metcalfe Solicitors in Bordon, Hampshire moving to become Head of Private Client at Tanner & Taylor in Farnham, Surrey.
I specialise in what is usually called ‘Private Client’ work. This essentially covers Wills, Probate, Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection work, all of which can be relevant to just about everyone regardless of their age or their circumstances.
People do though have different needs. For example, if you are reading this as a young parent, you may be juggling work with numerous other demands on your time and so I am always happy to arrange appointments in the evening or, if it helps, I can come to you.
Or perhaps you, or someone you know is elderly. Then your main concern may be that the whole experience of visiting a firm of solicitors can be daunting and quite possibly, if mobility is an issue, akin to planning a polar expedition. In those circumstances, and again I can come to you, a cup of tea and a chat is usually all it takes to establish a relaxed atmosphere and get the job done.
But always, my prime focus is to make sure that the advice I give is completely understood and that any actions I take properly reflect your intentions and protect your best interests.
