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.
We have always used your Sherborne office for our legal requirements and remain very happy with the help, advice and services provided to us.
I have always found Lucy Horsington and all the staff in Sherborne to be absolutely first-class. Many thanks.
Lucy Horsington is outstanding, efficient and helpful.
Lucy Horsington has again provided exemplary service and advice. She is totally professional, well informed, polite and sympathetic as usual. She is a pleasure to work with and I feel privileged to be able to consult her.
Lucy Horsington could not have been more helpful and actually visited my mother at home. Thank you- it was a painless experience.
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.
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.
