I joined Porter Dodson as a Legal Advisor in October 2022. I have eight years’ experience in advising a wide range of clients in matters concerning wills, powers of attorney, administration of estates and acting as an attorney. 

    I take pride in building a close relationship with my clients and providing them with holistic advice at what is a very difficult time for them. I achieve this by encouraging transparency and tailoring my approach according to my clients’ concerns. 

    I am happy to act for my clients remotely where necessary or indeed in person at our Taunton office.


    Well organised, quick to respond to my needs and able to respond with knowledge and understanding. I was lucky to be recommended by the previous owner of this flat when we moved to the South West.

    My partner and I wished to update our wills and to put in place Power of Attorney. Michael Fitzgerald took us through the process for each, and was approachable, knowledgeable and very thorough throughout. We felt he had a genuine interest in making the best arrangements for us. We were happy with Porter Dodson's service when we made our original wills some years ago but our recent experience has very much confirmed to us that these are very safe hands.

    Michael Fitzgerald recently dealt with my late mother’s estate. The service was excellent. At all times, Michael was efficient and considerate. He dealt with the administration in a very timely and professional manner. I have also had contact with other employees for a range of services and I would not hesitate to recommend them.
    Good service provided from both Wills and estates and conveyancing departments. All staff were helpful and considerate of my needs.

    My husband and I consulted Michael Fitzgerald at Porter Dodson to deal with my late father's estate. We were both feeling very overwhelmed and out of our depth. Michael soon put us at ease and took the pressure off. He is always very pleasant, professional, and conscientious. Nothing has proven to be too much trouble. Michael kept us informed at all times every step of the way and certainly went the extra mile. He brought everything to a swift and satisfactory conclusion. We would highly recommend.
