    Specialism: Care home cost planning, Continuing Health Care Funding, Court of Protection

    I’ve been working in Private Client areas of law since 2007.  I joined Porter Dodson in 2021 and now specialise in Court of Protection applications and management of affairs under a Power of Attorney/Deputyship Order.

    I am part of a team that helps individuals who lack mental capacity and assist their family/friends.  We deal with a variety of Court of Protection applications.  We also advise on payment of care fees.

    We will collaborate with clients and their family/carers to help them navigate the legal work and practical complexities they face.  We offer an empathetic and compassionate approach to help them reach their goals.  We work hard to develop long term trusted relationships with our clients.

    I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and love reading whenever I get a spare minute to myself!  I run the Uniform Exchange for the local primary school in the village where I live and I am also on the office Charity Committee at work.
