"I am an estate planning lawyer who advises on a range of private client matters with a particular focus on wills, lasting powers of attorney and inheritance tax planning”

I joined the firm in September 2019 as a trainee solicitor before qualifying into the private client department, specifically the wealth preservation team, in January 2022.

I have experience in a variety of aspects of wealth and estate planning matters. In particular, I advise on and draft wills, lasting powers of attorney and provide inheritance tax planning advice. I also advise on trust creation and the administration of ongoing trusts.

I am currently a member of Higgs’ Inclusion Group as I am passionate about promoting the firm’s inclusion agenda.

I am an affiliate member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners and am currently working towards obtaining the STEP Diploma and full membership.

I am also a member of Future Faces Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce and a committee member of the Wolverhampton and Black Country Junior Lawyers Division.
