About Me

I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Law from the University of Kent in 1974 and was admitted as a solicitor in 1977. I have practised with Gardner Croft for my whole professional life; first as an assistant solicitor, then as a partner and now as a consultant solicitor. For many years I represented clients as a criminal law and child care law specialist but since 2002, I have worked in the Private Client Department which I led until my retirement as a partner in April 2017. I have been a Trusts and Estates Practitioner (STEP) since 2006 and am a full member of Solicitors for the Elderly. I deal with Wills, Trusts and Probate matters, Estate Planning, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Court of Protection matters and Elderly Client issues, especially residential care costs. My particular specialisms include complex Wills and Estate Planning and advising and managing affairs for Elderly Clients.

I enjoy narrow boating and motorcycling. Cycling is a necessary evil but good for me and a pleasure in the summer months. At home I would enjoy sitting in the garden surrounded by the results of my wife’s gardening, when I got the chance, but this has recently changed with the addition of a new family member, a Norwegian Buhund puppy who is lovely but demanding.

Personal Mission Statement

“My area of work often involves complex issues. I feel that it is important to communicate with our clients in plain English so they have a clear understanding of those issues. Before turning to Private Client work, I practised for many years as an advocate in the Family Courts dealing with children’s cases. I also trained as a family Mediator. I find the skills from those disciplines helpful in my day to day practice now when dealing with or advising on clients’ difficult family situations."

What my clients have said about me...

“The Private Client Department were thoroughly professional yet friendly and approachable. No query or request was deemed too insignificant for a clear and prompt answer."
