I am a Chartered Legal Executive specialising in residential conveyancing and work from the Firm’s Leigh office.

I started my career as a Trainee Legal Executive in 2003 after completing my LLB (HONS) Degree and graduating from the University of Central Lancashire. I qualified as a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives in 2008 and joined Butcher & Barlow LLP in January 2014. I was made an Associate in 2022.

I deal with all aspect of residential conveyancing transactions, including:

  • Sales of residential properties, Freehold and Leasehold
  • Sales of residential leasehold apartments
  • Purchases of residential properties, Freehold and Leasehold
  • Sales of Buy to Let properties
  • Purchases of Buy to Let properties
  • Re-mortgages, including Buy to Let and apartments
  • Transfers of Equity
  • Deeds of Gift

I pride myself on providing an excellent level of client care to my clients. I am approachable, down to earth, and always on the other end of the phone or email.  I do like to see clients in person which gives a more personal service.  I feel this is the reason that a large percentage of my clients are returning client, having instructed me previously and been more than satisfied with the work I carried out on their behalf.

I have worked in the local area throughout my career, initially working in Leigh Town Centre for some 10 years, before Tyldesley Town Centre for some 6 years before returning back to my roots in Leigh. I feel that working within the local area gives me an advantage – I have a good working relationship with the local estate agents, mortgage brokers and solicitors, which helps to ensure completions take place in a timely manner and makes for a quick, stress-free and pleasant transaction.

Outside of the office I enjoy long walks with my two clumber spaniels, Reggie and Paisley, and holidaying with them in Cornwall.
