HELLO & WELCOME

ABOUT ME

Personal Profile

I am a goal orientated business and legal strategist. Qualified solicitor since 1995 and CeMAP qualified mortgage broker with the London Institute of Banking & Finance since 2020.

That makes me one of the very few people in the country that can give you legal advice AND advise you on mortgages and protections - both highly regulated fields. One by SRA and the other by FCA. 

I thrive on challenges and sheer hard work to get jobs done.


I am proud to say that I served as a Reservist (Territorial Army) for many years, some of which I served as an All Arms Commando.


Expert in family litigation (divorces, children, finances and injunctions) and in Wills, Trusts & Probate law (Penn Chambers 


I am CeMAP qualified and with Penn Financial we provide professional mortgage broking, life, protections and insurance services. Fully independently, in an unbiased manner and with having access to the whole of the market.

WILLS & PROBATE 
PROFESSIONAL WILL WRITING / PROBATE SOLICITORS

Dealing with a Will can be an unpleasant experience. It need not be. Protecting your family after you pass away is a very responsible thing to do. Making sure that is done properly is not something you want to leave to chance.


Preparing a Will through a fully qualified Solicitor is the ONLY way to make sure you provide properly for your loved ones.

The administration of a person's estate can be a complex, time consuming and often emotional time. As a specialist probate solicitor, I ensure that it is done properly, with options to mitigate any tax liability and undertaken sensitively. It is something that needs expert knowledge and a good bedside manner.
