I am a lawyer specialising in Court of Protection work and legal issues relating to the elderly and vulnerable. The early part of my career was spent in Guildford and Peterborough, before returning to Plymouth in 1990, where I worked as a Senior Solicitor and then a Partner for another local firm for 16 years. 

I have a background in private client law with over 30 years’ experience specialising in the field.  I have handled complex cases for the Court of Protection relating to those suffering from birth or acquired brain injury or by reason of the degenerative illnesses of old age.

Career Highlights

  • Recognised as a “leader in her field” by Chambers UK Legal Directory 2016
  • Immediate Past Chair of STEP Worldwide
  • Acts as Panel Deputy for the Office of the Public Guardian
  • I have had several articles published in various legal journals and contributed to the Law Society Will and Inheritance Protocol (published 2013)
