    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 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

    Ian Sankey and Jennie Vaughan-Jackson went far beyond what I would have expected of them to assist us and deal with all the situations that arose. A pleasure to deal with.

    Mr Ash

    I have been totally delighted with all the services and help I have received. A very friendly, professional manner at a time of great stress. Thank you all involved.

    Mrs Stainer

    In helping us prepare our Wills and letters of wishes, Ian has been exemplary - efficient, helpful advice, good execution and remarkable value for money.

    Mr & Mrs Dalglish

    I was treated with sympathy and an understanding of my needs. The fee was very reasonable and I feel well looked after.

    Mrs Pitt

    I was pleasantly surprised at how friendly and extremely helpful Ian Sankey was during my communications with him. I would be very happy and confident to recommend his services.
