"I am a legal assistant in the estates team and have extensive knowledge of the administration of estates”

I work in the estates team and assist the wider team with all aspects of estate administration, including applying for grants of representation and registering the grant.

I have over 15 years’ experience working in the private client sector. I joined the private client department at Higgs LLP as a secretary in June 2012, I was promoted to a legal assistant in 2020.

Previous to working in the estates team i provided first hand support to the charity and not for profit team, being responsible for the day to day administration of our grant making charities. It was a role which greatly developed my knowledge and skills and I got to meet some really inspiring people who gave up their spare time to help those in need.

Always looking to update my skills and challenge myself, I moved to the estates team at the start of January 2023 to develop my career further.

During my time at Higgs I have developed strong relationships with our clients often being the first point of contact for bereaved families. I enjoy being able to offer support and guidance to those people in such difficult times.
