Overview

I am a Graduate Member of Cilex working in the Dispute Resolution Department. I specialise in Contentious Probate disputes, Landlord and Tenant disputes and specialist Court of Protection litigation in the Court of Protection. I can offer clear, pragmatic advice and assistance in all of these areas.

I joined Bennett-Griffin in 2017, having gained experience of litigious debt recovery at a Worthing based Firm.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, baking and playing the saxophone.

Recent Cases

Acting for concerned relatives, we succeeded in revoking the position of an appointed Attorney and achieved replacement by a professional, Court appointed, Deputy. The prior Attorney was accused of serious misappropriation of funds over a sustained period of time. The Estate of the protected party was preserved and the incoming Deputy was able to conduct a detailed investigation into the serious allegations against the prior Deputy.

Acting for a Life Interest Beneficiary under a Trust, we successfully mediated a solution to a long-standing and entrenched Trust Dispute. The Client was ultimately able to sell the original Trust property and purchase a new Trust property which was better suited to her changing needs.
