I joined Porter Dodson in 2009. After completing my training with the firm, I qualified as a solicitor in April 2012. I became a partner in February 2020.
I work very closely with my clients to build a strong relationship with them. I often visit clients at home to discuss important personal matters in an environment in which they are comfortable. Similarly, I am available in the office based in the centre of the town to meet clients that prefer to discuss matters face to face rather than over the telephone.
I am a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners.
I won the Cook & Hatchard’s Law Prize presented by the Devon and Somerset Law Society in 2012.
Sarah is a charming and lovely member of your staff and has been helpful and painstaking on every aspect of my new Will.

'Attended a retirement course with Leonardo Helicopters where Sarah gave a presentation on your services. We were impressed with the overall professionalism and as our wills required updating, we did not hesitate to contact yourselves.'
Very easy to talk to. Was quite anxious about making my will over the phone but once I spoke to Lucy and Sarah, I felt very confident in dealing with such an important subject without actually meeting the people I was putting my trust in.
