Get in touch

Having practised in dispute resolution since 2008, I qualified as a Solicitor in July 2011. I joined Porter Dodson in November 2015, being promoted to the role of Associate in May 2017.

My practice consists solely of disputes involving probate, trusts, and inheritance matters. I provide advice to Executors, Personal Representatives, Trustees (including Professional Trustees), Beneficiaries, Charities and anyone needing advice in these circumstances.

I am a member of the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS). My membership with ACTAPS and my particular specialism in contentious probate matters mean I have extensive experience in this area.

My specialism and experience allow me to undertake all matters with a focus on the cost effectiveness of the situation. I am client focused and believe that appropriate solutions can be gained by taking the time to consider all of the issues.

We are very happy with the service and expertise provided by both Cara and prior to that, Stephen Wray. They were both very efficient and we achieved the result we had hoped for. Money well spent!
We found Cara extremely approachable. Particular merit should go to Cara over the manner in which our mediation was conducted. Her determination to achieve the best possible outcome was commendable.
Approachable and professional. Cara was an excellent, firm and determined advocate during the mediation.
Mr Ash
Cara Hough was first class. I could not have wished for anyone better. Very professional in everything she did.
Mr White
Very good team of solicitors. Very friendly and helpful. I would recommend them to family and friends.
I found everyone polite, efficient and friendly. I hadn't been looking forward to the meeting but you were able to put me at ease and explain the situation clearly.
