I joined the firm in 1996, initially as a secretary, and then as a paralegal before undertaking training with the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives to become an Associate Chartered Legal Executive.
What can I do for you?
Clients instruct me to for help with wills and probate, administering estates, Court of Protection issues and trusts.
I can also create and register Lasting Powers of Attorney, where an individual appoints a person to look after their personal affairs. Or, if necessary, they can appoint Thomson Webb & Corfield to organise their affairs.
There are a lot of misconceptions about wills. I can guide clients through the whole process, to create a will individually tailored to their needs and circumstances.
I am also involved in informal meetings in the community, engaging people who may previously have been too daunted to think about drafting a will. They learn how easy it can be and what a professional, friendly and approachable team we are.
Why come to us?
Clients often thank me for my support and that is what this job is all about. Dealing with the affairs of a loved one who has died is deeply distressing, and I can offer support and understanding as well a practical solution. I like to go the extra mile and I do not mind if a client calls me three times a day with a question. I want them to completely understand the process.
Most of my work is for existing clients or people they have recommended me to. This is because I get to know and understand my clients. If our firm is managing your affairs, you can expect someone to know you and your case when you call.
What clients say:
“Claire explained everything really well. She was very helpful and supportive. This was my first experience with a Solicitor and thank you very much.”
“Claire was very efficient and drew up the wills in the time needed. She was professional and explained everything in an efficient manner.”
