    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.



    Ian Sankey has a real understanding of my affairs and has been most helpful over the past six years.

    Mr Dallimore

    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.

    Mrs Goddard

    Helpful, pleasant and cost effective service. No difficulties or problems whatsoever. Thank you.

    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.

    Mr S

    We have known Ian Sankey for many years- discreet, personable, helpful, excellent fine gentleman. Thank you Ian.

    Mrs Saunders

    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.
