    I have been a private client lawyer since I qualified as a solicitor. My work covers Wills, estate administration, inheritance tax planning, discretionary trusts, powers of attorney and asset preservation. I joined Porter Dodson in January 2000.

    I am able to apply my legal knowledge and my practical experience to assist my clients in finding solutions to their legal problems.

    Having developed a wide range of professional contacts I am able to introduce my clients to other specialists who are a perfect fit for their particular needs.



    My family have used Porter Dodson for many years, Ian Sankey and Jennie Vaughan-Jackson being our current solicitors. The firm never fails in giving 100% professional help and service.

    Mr F

    At a very difficult time, they were caring, compassionate, super-efficient and thoughtful beyond words. Nothing was too much trouble and they were always there to help, advise and answer questions. I have no reservations in recommending them, they were faultless.

    Straightforward, expert advice. Friendly and approachable.

    Mr and Mrs D

    Ian Sankey has processed my will on two occasions and I have always felt I had his personal attention- never hurried. I felt I mattered as a client. I would not hesitate to recommend your company in all aspects of legal work.

    Mrs N Marwood

    We had excellent service from Mr Sankey and his secretary who he brought with him to our house for us to sign the will.

    Mr & Mrs Fussell

    Ian Sankey's care and sensitivity has enabled an extremely difficult situation to progress as smoothly and painlessly as it could have been and I will be forever grateful to him. Easily the best experience I've had.

    Mrs Kerr
