Get in touch

I qualified as a solicitor in 1980 and joined the firm in December 2000. I specialise in commercial property matters, including land acquisition and disposal, options, and landlord and tenant issues.

I have many years’ experience of property transactions, and based on that experience I am good at problem solving. I enjoy working with clients to achieve their goals.

As head of our education team I have been responsible for the property work in Academy Conversions. I have built links with schools converting to Academy status who have praised my work with them.

I often visit clients at their place of business. This gives me valuable insight into the clients’ business and assists in meeting their needs.

I am based in the Taunton office and have strong links with the local community. I was a trustee of Age Concern Somerset and am currently a Trustee of Mary Street Unitarian Chapel.



The whole process was very well conducted by a very professional and approachable solicitor.

Wouldn't go anywhere else. Have used Porter Dodson on many occasions. In my opinion, always money well spent.
