Location: Taunton Position: Partner, Head of Private Client
Team: Private Client, Rural Business, Land & Agriculture
I trained with Porter Dodson and qualified as a solicitor in 2002. I was made a partner in February 2013 and now head the Private Client Team.
We seek to ensure that every client receives clear, helpful advice and support during the legal process. I have extensive experience in dealing with a range of private client matters, including Wills and Powers of Attorney, the administration of both estates and trusts, general tax planning and Court of Protection work, including Deputyship applications.
I enjoy meeting with clients and working closely with them. My experience enables me to establish clearly what my clients are looking to achieve and help them through the legal process with an approachable and straightforward attitude.
Born and raised in Somerset, I have a thorough knowledge of this area and am on hand to meet with clients either in the office or at home if this suits their needs.
I am a full member of the Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners (STEP) and have been recommended in the Legal 500.
The private client team at Porter Dodson have always provided a high level of service to our mutual clients. We feel confident recommending them. The team is led well by Sharon Collier and do seem to function very well as a team, which is important.
Sharon Collier is very knowledgeable and hard-working. She gives excellent customer service despite her high workloads.
Sharon Collier’s combination of ability and excellent bedside manner make her a stand-out in the firm.
As always, very happy indeed with the service I have received from Sharon, and I certainly consider it to be money well spent.
Really helpful, very easy process. We would always prefer to do any business by video conference. Signing well organised and straightforward. Really happy with everything - well done team.
I can only say that I could not be happier with the way in which our dealings with your company were handled. This was true throughout, from the first phone call to completion. However, recommendations count and I was recommended by my daughter, also how my sister's will was carried out many years ago by your company. Everything was carried out in a totally professional and yet friendly way with COVID-19 at the present time. Things cannot be easy for any company but Porter Dodson rose to the fore with the excellence of Sharon.
Over several years I have used other legal advisors but suffice to say I will contact Porter Dodson when next I need legal assistance. Very professional service with information delivered promptly and described in layman's language.
