“I pride myself on providing clear and pragmatic advice to clients to navigate them through the difficulties of any litigation.

Client care is at the forefront of the work I complete and establishing a relationship of trust and confidence is a necessity in Wills and Estate Disputes, where clients are often facing claims that are emotionally challenging and distressing

I place great emphasis on ensuring my clients are kept informed at every stage of work completed and are provided with clear advice and guidance on their dispute and any associated litigation risks. Costs are always at the forefront of any approach suggested and I enjoy the challenge of working together with my clients to ensure that an effective resolution to their dispute that is cost effective and that they are comfortable with that is achieved”
