I AM MOTIVATED BY A DESIRE TO ENSURE THAT THE RIGHTS OF VULNERABLE AND ELDERLY CLIENTS ARE BEING RESPECTED AND THAT THEY ARE SUPPORTED IN THEIR DECISION-MAKING WHEREVER POSSIBLE.
"One of the great people, a deputy's deputy – her commitment, her kindness, her expertise, her willingness to go absolutely the extra mile for clients is wonderful." Chambers 2016
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.
