Following my first career in the army (The Gordon Highlanders), I was a specialist private client solicitor in law firms across Buckinghamshire and the Home Counties for over 20 years.
Having lived in Wendover with my family since the late ‘90’s, I have now realised a long-time goal of setting up my own Wills & Estate Planning Consultancy, based in my hometown.
I offer clients friendly, pragmatic and bespoke specialist legal advice. This is mainly in private client matters including Wills, estate, later life and succession planning and powers of attorney. I am also a member of The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, which is a specialist body in this line of work.
My aim is to make the whole legal process of planning for the future as straight forward and user friendly as possible. I therefore see clients at their own homes or businesses, whatever is most convenient, at a time that suits them.
I work very closely with other professional advisors such as financial and wealth management advisors, accountants, banks and other solicitors in providing comprehensive advice for clients.
The way I have approached my legal career (which often involves guiding people through difficult circumstances) and the wish to provide a worthwhile and important service, has been significantly influenced by my time in the army. One of my aims now is to work closely with both serving and retired military personnel and military focused charities.
I have assisted various charities over the years and am keen to develop this area further. I have also been a trustee and bereavement listener at my local hospice and am currently leading a project on ‘charitable giving in wills in the legal profession’, for Remember A Charity.
