What do you specialise in?


Kathryn has specialised in Wills & Probate since her qualification in 2008 and was promoted to Director in 2018. 

In December 2019, Kathryn became an Associate Member of the Solicitors for the Elderly and along with many other members of the Wills & Probate team, Kathryn is also a registered Dementia Friend.

Kathryn was promoted to Head of the Wills & Probate department earlier this year and deals mainly with all aspects of Probate such as:

  • Grant of Probate
  • Full Estate Administration
  • Complex estate administration where businesses, foreign assets and land may be involved
  • Intestate estates where this is no Will in place

Kathryn is also a specialist at dealing with the creation and administration of Trusts. This can include acting as a professional Trustee herself, or advising other Trustees of their roles and responsibilities to ensure the trust is managed in accordance with the needs of the beneficiaries. Kathryn is also a Professional Deputy.

Working alongside our Personal Injury Department, Kathryn can also assist with the creation of specialised Personal Injury Compensation. This is a special type of Trust set up the protect compensation awarded following an injury sustained from an accident.

The nature of matters that Kathryn works with can be very complicated and quite overwhelming for some clients. Kathryn specialises in working through all kinds of highly complex cases, and her exceptionally calm and sympathetic manner immediately puts her clients at ease.
