Having qualified in 1987, I have worked in many different sizes and types of firms across Birmingham and the West Midlands, and also taught on the Legal Practice Course at Birmingham City University. I joined Silks in 2007 and I practice solely in Private Client matters, covering Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, Deputyships and Probates, and have 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 work closely with other departments in the firm where their expertise is useful, as well as with other professionals, including financial advisors and accountants, to ensure it is not just the legal aspects that are put in order .
If it matters to my client then it matters to me.
