T: 01242 229085
I am a solicitor in the Private Client team, advising clients on all aspects within that field including wills, probate & estate administration, trusts, tax, powers of attorney and applications involving the Office of the Public Guardian and Court of Protection. I work with all sorts of private individuals from new homeowners or young families just starting out, to experienced and sophisticated business owners, to people enjoying their retirement in later life and elderly, vulnerable people. I have a particular interest in assisting elderly and vulnerable clients, advising on matters relating to care and capacity issues.
Outside of work, my interests include yoga, baking and wine. I also love exploring the great outdoors, good food and spending time with friends & family.

Have you always worked in the legal sector? If not, what did you do before?
I completed my LPC in 2009 and started at MFG solicitors in January 2010. I have had a number of part-time jobs including waitressing, bar work, sales assistant at HSamuels and catering assistant at West Midlands Safari Park. My first job was “Saturday assistant” at Bewdley Library.

A cup of tea.
