Lesley is an Associate member of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executive Lawyers and is currently in her final year of studying to qualify as a Chartered Legal Executive.
She joined the firm in 2002, initially working in the personal injury claims team. She transferred into the wills, trusts and probate team in 2006 and now specialises in the preparation of wills and lasting powers of attorney, applications to the Court of Protection with regards to the appointment of Deputies, assisting executors with applications for grants of probate and helping clients deal with the administration of estates.
If a client requires assistance following the death of a family member who has died without making a will or a client is appointed as an executor in a will, Lesley will be able to apply for a grant if required to enable the estate to be dealt with. Lesley can assist families to deal with the distribution of the estate, prepare accounts for the beneficiaries and deal with issues such as taxation. Lesley will provide an individual service to meet the client’s particular needs.
Lesley can also assist with applications to appoint or change attorneys. She is experienced in court of protection matters such as deputyship applications and is happy to assist deputies with their annual reports.
Lesley is based in our Skegness branch but she can visit you in your home, care home or in hospital anywhere in the surrounding area if you have difficulty in getting to the office.
