I qualified as a solicitor in 2007. I have been a specialist Private Client solicitor with Birchall Blackburn Law for more than a decade. Private client matters require sensitivity and attention to detail. These are personal and financial matters that will impact on your future and those of your family and loved ones. It is important to speak to an experienced solicitor whom you trust.
I have a wealth of experience within:
- Administration of estates
- Lasting Powers of Attorney
- Estate Planning
- Trust Administration
- Tax Planning
- Court of Protection
- Elderly client services
My work with the older generation led to my appointment as Chair of the South Ribble Dementia Action Alliance (SRDAA). The SRDAA is committed to transforming the quality of life of people living with dementia in South Ribble community. We also look to support people caring for friends or relatives with dementia. I am immensely proud of the role I play within the Alliance and all the work we do to help and support vulnerable people.
I decided on a career in law after I completed work experience at a local Solicitor’s practice whilst at school. I gained an insight into what a week in the life of a Solicitor was like and I was hooked. Initially, I wanted to specialise in Criminal Law, but during my training contract I was enticed into the Probate Department by the very wise head of the team, and I have never looked back.
I gained a law degree and a commendation in Legal Practice at York College of Law. I am a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, The Association of Lifetime Lawyers, and the Law Society’s Private Client section.
