Get in touch

I joined Porter Dodson in March 2011. I am a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives and a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners.

I have worked for clients in the Taunton and Somerset area for over 25 years, advising them on Wills, Tax, Powers of Attorney and Estate Administration.

I have contributed to Radio 4’s Moneybox Live and regularly speak at seminars, including the Somerset County Council Preretirement seminars for the last 15 years.

With many years experience in Will drafting, Trusts and Inheritance Tax, I am able to advise on matters in a practical and accessible way. I believe in discussing matters and explaining issues clearly and in plain English in such a way as to encourage clients to be open and ask questions and to gain a full and complete understanding.

My experience in dealing with the administration of estates enables me to be aware of potential pitfalls and areas which can cause confusion or distress to a family.

Having been fortunate enough to live and work in the Taunton area for over 25 years, I believe I have an excellent knowledge of the needs and challenges of a wide range of client circumstances. For clients who find it difficult to visit these offices I am able to arrange to meet with them at home to discuss their needs.


A very friendly team that put me at ease and got to know me so that they could understand my needs and guide me to make decisions on my Will.
Peter understood my requirements and gave clear, concise recommendations. Such an easy process with him. Great value for money.
Really great service from Peter Cooke. Guided us through the process of Wills and Trusts. Explained it all in simple terms and was a very understanding person. I have now moved all my business to Porter Dodson because of this really good experience.
Great service, friendly, diligent approach. Would definitely use again. Thank you.
We have had excellent professional service throughout the process of having our Wills re-drafted. Peter Cooke delivered his guidance with a sense of humour and light touch whilst advising on our Wills, and is very approachable.
We were recommended by friends to consult Porter Dodson and we were not disappointed. Those who we met dealt with us courteously and professionally, explaining things very patiently and well, which made it an experience that we actually enjoyed, having been apprehensive beforehand. We certainly feel it was money well spent and we'll certainly recommend your firm to others.
We first met Peter Cooke some years ago when he drew up our previous Wills. We are very happy with the service Peter has given us through Porter Dodson.
Very good welcome from all the staff. Prompt, efficient and friendly. Good job. Thank you.
My requirement was dealt with extremely professionally by Peter, who guided me through the process answering any questions I had. First class service.
Peter was excellent at explaining all options available to me and what outcomes my decisions would have. I am very grateful for all his hard work.
