    Location: Dorchester       Position: Legal Advisor

    Team:  Private Client

    Specialism: Administering an estate, Appointing an Attorney, Care Home cost planning, Inheritance and other taxes, Making & updating a will, Trusts


    I am an associate member of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives having studied whilst gaining valuable practical experience in my chosen area of specialism with Porter Dodson. I first joined the firm in September 1998 and took a brief career break in 2007, rejoining the firm in December 2009.

    I help my clients plan for the future by advising on Wills, Power of Attorney documents, Trusts and Tax Planning. I also have extensive experience in all aspects of estate administration for my clients following a bereavement by providing sympathetic and supportive advice through what is often an emotional and difficult time in their lives.

    As family circumstances become increasingly complicated, my experience means I can listen to what my clients want to achieve for them and their family’s future security and provide a range of solutions to suit the individual circumstances.

    I aim to develop a lasting relationship with my clients and have often assisted several generations of the same family as a result. I am also able to visit clients in their own home or at care homes and hospitals if required.


    Kerensa and Sarah were both very patient and understanding and especially around both my daughter and my hearing impairment. They worked quickly and effectively but our meetings were never rushed and they always listened and advised clearly and effectively. Money well spent for peace of mind.
