I joined the firm in September 2013 and qualified as a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives in July 2016.

    I have conveyancing experience which includes dealing with freehold and leasehold sales and purchases, shared ownership, transfers of equity, remortgages and the Help to Buy Government Scheme.

    I am a recommended solicitor for local developers. This type of work requires me to be precise, efficient and accessible and enables me to meet expectations and offer an excellent service to clients.

    My experience allows me to provide a friendly, approachable service where clients are kept up to date. By listening to my clients and understanding their needs, it assists in making the transaction as stress-free as possible.

    Living in Sherborne allows me a good knowledge of the town and surrounding area. I have also worked with clients on a nationwide basis.

    I have taught CILEX level 6 Conveyancing and completed my Level 3 Award in Education and Training.

    I enjoy many activities including spinning and zumba. I love to travel, read, cook and spend time with loved ones.

    Mr Torkington & Miss Guppy

    We are extremely satisfied with all aspects of the service you provided. Efficiently courteous indeed. Appears to be a very good working team - well done to you all! Good value for the money.

    Mr & Mrs Green

    We were very impressed with Jennifer and Verity. The service was excellent and Jennifer responded quickly to questions and queries. We felt that they worked very efficiently and professionally. We wouldn't hesitate in using Porter Dodson again in the future.

    Mr & Mrs Cobb

    Very pleased with the whole process. Everything was clearly explained to me from the beginning and throughout. Provided a value for money service. Kept fully informed throughout and felt as if I was part of the process. Very impressed with all members of Porter Dodson who I had contact with - professional, efficient and polite.

    Miss Watt

    A very comforting and highly professional service provided by Jennifer and Verity. Having been with Batt Sanders & Bennett since 1972, it is very reassuring that the new, larger organisation that has taken over the old, familiar firm has given us the confidence to know that our interests in both property and Wills are being looked after so well.

    Mr & Mrs Hunter-Inglis

    The team were very kind and helpful. They worked well as a team to keep me informed of the process. I would recommend them again and I am happy with the cost and the process as a whole. Thank you.

    Mrs Perry

    Very good communication and everything was done very promptly to ensure my house purchase went through successfully.


    The service my wife and I received from Jennifer was the best we have ever known. Any contact with her or her team always gave the impression of an oasis of calm.

    Mr and Mrs D

    Both Jennifer Knott and Hannah Loxston made the process very straightforward and there was excellent communication at all times. They both showed a high level of professionalism throughout and made the entire process very stress-free.

    Dr Moore

    I was generally very happy with the service that was provided by Porter Dodson.  Jennifer was extremely thorough and professional and she worked very hard to meet the demanding deadlines we had imposed on the sale. She was polite and helpful when contacting me and I felt I was in good hands throughout.


    Always a good service. I trust Jennifer implicitly to ensure all necessary information is received and checked before progression to exchange. I have used other law firms but always regretted not choosing Porter Dodson and wouldn't use anyone else in the future for conveyancing.
