I qualified as a Solicitor in 1999, working for a firm in Reading. During this time I studied to become a member of STEP (the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners), qualifying in 2004. I also joined Solicitors For the Elderly.

I have considerable experience in drafting Wills and advising on Inheritance tax planning and asset preservation. I deal with all aspects of estate administration, advise on trusts, prepare powers of attorney and undertake Court of Protection work. I joined Porter Dodson in January 2005.

My practical experience and knowledge means that I can help and encourage my clients in planning for the future, whether during their lifetimes and/or on death. I can support families and friends at worrying times and can help ease the stress of ill health and bereavement, by dealing with practical and financial issues in a quiet and efficient way.

Having lived and worked in the area for many years, I have developed and maintain good relations and contacts which can assist clients, especially those new to the area. For example, accountants, IFAs, estate agents, social workers, care home managers, auctioneers and undertakers.

I would like to thank Lucy for the care and patience she showed when there were some aspects of making my LPA which I didn't always understand. I am confident that my future affairs are in safe hands.
Mrs Smith
Courteous, understanding, punctilious and professional in all respects. Extremely satisfied with service and outcome.

Making my Will was daunting for me but it was made a lot easier with Lucy's patience. I would recommend your practice to anybody. Thanks once again.
Mr & Mrs Pickford
I felt very confident that the information and advice given was sound, well deserved and knowledgeable. I am pleased with the outcome and would certainly call on Lucy's services should the occasion arise.

Clear, concise, efficient, exacting, empathetic. As a client, we felt relaxed, informed and confident that our business was professionally dealt with. Thank you - an easy mind is so comforting!

Lucy and her colleagues provided an excellent service. She described each stage of the process as clearly and simply as she could and provided the right level of information to help us in my decision making. Would highly recommend her and her colleagues to others.

As always, good advice, help and service from Lucy Horsington and her team. Wouldn't go anywhere else - have used your firm for over 20 years and will continue to do so, when necessary.
Mr & Mrs Pickford
I really can't fault the service I received from Lucy. She explained everything to us in layman's terms and was always available to call or email should we need to clarify something.

I couldn't want for a more charming and efficient person. If all the country was staffed by people like Lucy Horsington, what a wonderful world we'd live in.
