I am currently an Affiliate member of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives and am training with them to qualify as a Chartered Legal Executive specialising in Private Client services.

I started my Private Client career around 4 years ago when I joined a Will Writing company as a Trainee Will Writer.  After discovering a passion for helping clients achieve their wishes and a real interest in each client's individual circumstances, I realised that I would like to pursue Will Writing under a legal profession, study for the same and specialise in all other aspects of Private Client work too.  It was at this time that I was introduced to the studying board of CILEx and began my learning with them.  I also began working for a solicitors, enabling me to broaden my knowledge in the Private Client department and act for clients under a much wider range of services.  After two years of working with EMD Law LLP, I was given the opportunity to work with McMillan Williams, to continue to broaden my knowledge in the Private Client sector and achieve my career goal of helping every client under every aspect of Private Client Services.

I pride myself in the personal service and empathy I provide to my clients and it is very important to me that they feel supported and understood throughout matters that can be incredibly sensitive and difficult for them.

After beginning my journey just writing Wills, I am now able to offer my clients the following services with the appropriate advice within the legal profession:

  • Wills
  • Lasting Powers of Attorney
  • Deputyships
  • Declarations of Trust

I have begun internal Probate training with McMillan Williams and look forward to adding this service to the above list in the near future.
