Our Private Client Team consists of Sally Cook, Karen Yates, Rebecca Green, and Howard Burns. All our team members are specialist solicitors and members of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP). Sally and Howard are also both accredited Trust and Estate Practitioners (TEP).  

The death of a loved one, lifetime tax planning and making plans to organise your personal affairs in later life can be difficult issues and can give rise to a variety of legal problems.

We pride ourselves on providing a personal and friendly service.  We like to keep things simple and will use clear, plain and jargon free language wherever possible. We are here to help during what may be a difficult and stressful time, providing you with the support you need.

Your matter will be handled from start to finish by the same solicitor that you meet at the outset.  Our secretaries will also be available to help you throughout.  We do not operate in a call centre.....you will always speak to one of the team. 

There are no hidden costs and we will be able to confirm a full estimate of our costs at the initial meeting.  In fact, most of our services can be offered on a fixed fee basis.

What Our Clients Say

I was very impressed with Sallys patient, knowledgeable ideas and explanations. The law can be very confusing. Her genuine wish to help was much appreciated.

Mrs Baumber

I am part sighted and things that I have found hard to read have been read to me with understanding and patience. I feel well served.

Mrs Parkinson

I am now happy that my will and Lasting Power of Attorney has been prepared by a solicitor. In past years it was through the bank. They are not solicitors.
