Tricia is a Director with Lupton Fawcett and heads the Private Client Department. Having practised as a solicitor in the city for more than 30 years, Tricia has a good reputation as a private client specialist and advises on Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorneys, and administers deceased estates. However, she has always undertaken residential conveyancing too and so is pleased to be able to deal with the property aspects of an estate whether this be deeds of gift or estate related transfers or sales.
Tricia has also had strong links with Sheffield Mencap and Gateway for 20 years and is very proud of that connection. As well as providing advice to parents and contacts of those organisations, she is an appointed trustee in many trusts and settlements.

What Others Say
Tricia is always very pleased to receive a 'thank you letter' from a client at the conclusion of a matter. Amongst these have been "many thanks indeed for the immediate help and support", and "thank you for looking after us at this time in a friendly and compassionate manner." - Anon
Tricia Carter provided me with an exceptional service in a very timely manner, continually demonstrating an exceptional knowledge of legislation, guiding me through the options available to me and my circumstances. I would recommend Tricia and the professional services she offers to everyone. - Anon
Tricia Carter has a long association with Sheffield Mencap and Gateway and we're very glad to know her. For many years she has met regularly with groups of parent carers during the day and in evenings to answer questions about ways of leaving money and property through wills and trusts to people with learning disabilities. The families I work with always get a lot from her sessions and she is careful to always give impartial, sensible advice. I have only ever had extremely positive feedback from family carers who've come to the sessions and I've learnt a lot over the years from her too. - Dalia Magrill, Sheffield Mencap and Gateway

When not at work
Tricia enjoys playing tennis and racquetball and also swims regularly. She loves walking in Derbyshire, particularly if she can borrow someone's dog to take with her. Tricia also has a son and a daughter in their twenties (who both work in London), and her partner is a French chef, so she now cooks better, but eats more!
Tricia is also adviser at Sheffield Age UK and Honorary Solicitor to Sheffield Mencap and Gateway providing advice for parents on Wills and trusts.
