I am a solicitor and partner based at the firm’s Frodsham office. I have been based at this office since qualifying as a solicitor in 2012. I specialise in private client and property matters.

Prior to qualifying as a solicitor, I trained with Butcher & Barlow, and before that, I undertook my legal qualifications at the College of Law, Chester. I previously studied History at the University of St Andrews.

More particularly I deal with:

  • Wills;
  • Probate;
  • Inheritance Tax;
  • Trusts;
  • Powers of Attorney; and Court of Protection matters

I also act on a broad range of Residential and Commercial Property matters including Buy to Let Property, Leases, transactions involving Self Invested Pension Plans (SIPPs) and Owner Occupied Businesses.

I act for a broad spectrum of clients from private individuals and families to family trusts and commercial entities and pension funds to assist with a range of legal matters.

I am presently completing the examinations to become a full member of the Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners (STEP) which is the leading professional body for practitioners in the area of Trust and Estate administration.

Recent matters I have dealt with have included dealing with preparing Wills to contain trusts to assist vulnerable beneficiaries, mitigating potentially large inheritance tax bills in a deceased’s estate and also dealing with property transactions involving considerable Overage or Claw-back provisions.

Outside of these matters, I enjoy cooking and constructing Lego sculptures with my two-year-old son.
