Amanda joined the family firm in 1987 and was admitted as a solicitor in 1989.  She became a partner in 2004.  She is a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP), and the Law Society’s Probate Section and Solicitors for the Elderly.

She acts for clients on all powers of attorney and Court of Protection matters, including statutory wills, deputyship and applications for permission to make lifetime gifts. She acts as a professional Deputy for elderly clients, and also for children and young adults in receipt of personal injury awards. This work can also include the setting up of Personal Injury Trusts.

Amanda deals with the Administration of Estates of all sizes, from a straightforward application for probate, up to estate involving complex inheritance tax issues involving agricultural property relief and business property relief. 

Recent estate administrations have concerned the repatriation of assets held in Dubai, Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man.

Current topical issues for will clients are how to protect assets:

  • for children of a previous marriage
  • from potential care fees
  • where one spouse has already lost their mental capacity
