Career

In her role, Elizabeth works with new clients and ‘off the street’ enquiries, as well as referrals to the firm and repeat customers. She deals with matters of Probate, Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Trusts. People often come to see Solicitors in Elizabeth’s area of law because of a big change in their lives, such as getting married or having a baby, losing a loved one or receiving bad news from the doctor. All are looking for advice as they navigate through these changes.

She always ensures she takes detailed instructions, researching as necessary and then drafting documents tailored to suit the client’s individual needs. Good at explaining legal jargon to clients, Elizabeth takes time to make sure her clients understand how it is of benefit to them. The diverse nature of the people she deals with provides a constant challenge, but Elizabeth works to ensure that she can find the right solution for their problem.
