I qualified with a BA/LLB University of Newcastle (NSW), College of Law – Diploma of Legal Practice in Sydney (NSW), before being admitted as a solicitor to the Law Society of England and Wales in 2006. I have 15 years post qualification experience and my practice areas include Probate and Administration of Estates, Wills, Inheritance Tax and Trusts. I currently spend 40% of my time working for uncontested probate. I am Member of STEP, a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of NSW and a Solicitor in England and Wales.

Outside of work you can find me cycling, or on muddy dog walks in the country.

What is your most interesting legal experience?

My most curious legal experience was organising the removal of goats from a farm. That was not something I ever expected to have to do as a lawyer!

What is your favourite aspect of work?

My favourite aspect of work is definitely the variety of interesting clients. Hearing their stories is fascinating, as they come from many different backgrounds and have diverse personalities.
