I am a member of the Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE), Private Client Section of the Law Society, and Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP). I currently serve on the Birmingham STEP committee, I am a member of the STEP Special Interest Group for mental capacity, and I am a Dementia Friend.
I qualified in 1987 and was Associate Partner in a large Birmingham practice before becoming a Partner at Tamworth firm in 1994. After a short career break and a stint in teaching on the Legal Practice Course at Birmingham City University, I returned to Private Practice in Birmingham and then joined Silks in 2007.
I have nearly 30 years experience in Private Client matters both in Private Practice and also as a lecturer and examiner. I deal with Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, Deputyships and Probates with a particular interest in the elderly and the vulnerable.
I like to build up a relationship of trust with my clients and their families to ensure that their needs are properly looked after in a respectful and caring manner. My priority is to ensure that all clients’ concerns are listened to and they are given the time and the space needed to help them to understand their options, explaining clearly how their objectives may be best achieved. I also work closely with other departments in the firm where their expertise is useful as well as with other professionals to ensure it is not just the legal aspects that are put in order, including financial advisors and accountants.
If it matters to my client then it matters to me.
Lis Whybrow dealt with the matters promptly and professionally. She was very thorough and I had confidence in her. We dealt with each other as equals rather than expert and non-expert. I would be happy to instruct her again should the need arise. Well Done.Mrs W
