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.
