End of an era as Legal Practitioner retires after 44 years

The end of June will mark the end of an era as wills, trusts and probate specialist Jill Griffin retires after 44 years’ service with leading Somerset and Dorset law firm, Porter Dodson.

Jill is a member of Porter Dodson’s highly regarded Private Client team which is one of only four in the area to be recognised for its work in leading directory, Chambers UK.

For the past five years Jill has been based at the firm’s Taunton office and during her time with the firm, has built up a strong reputation and loyal following with clients in and around the Taunton, Bridgwater and Langport areas, as well as her home town of Street.

Jill’s clients will be well looked after by colleague Peter Cooke, who himself has over 20 years’ experience in the field and is a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).

Speaking on Jill’s retirement, Porter Dodson Partner and head of Taunton’s Private Client team, Sharon Collier said. “Jill has shown enormous commitment to Porter Dodson and on behalf of the Partners I would like to thank her for her tremendous hard work and dedication. Jill has been a key part of the team and we will miss her, but we also wish her all the very best for a long and happy retirement.”

Jill comments. “Despite major changes to the legal sector and economy over the years, Porter Dodson’s continued success and support has given me the opportunity to develop my career. I have worked with some wonderful people and I would particularly like to thank my clients for their loyalty. I know that Peter will build on those relationships and that my clients are in safe hands.”
