I qualified in November 2000 with a small firm in Sussex. I have always worked in Residential Conveyancing. In 2005 my husband and I took the opportunity to move to the South West where we have lived up to the present day. We did move from Exeter in Devon to cross the border to Somerset in 2013, where we now live in a small village Stoke-Sub-Hamdon just outside Yeovil. I spent July 2005 to March 2015 working for Ashfords a top 50 law firm making associate then partner.
I was proud to head up and build a strong Residential Conveyancing team in the Taunton office during the last five years I worked with Ashfords. During my whole career I have always managed a team, trained assistants and new fee earners supporting their career progressions, alongside running my own caseload. I enjoy this element of the work although it can take considerable time and effort, it usually bears dividends in the form of a loyal and motivated team that enjoy working together.
My last three years have been spent with a local firm Battens Solicitors where I managed to expand the conveyancing team in Yeovil both in numbers within the team and workload which I managed to triple within my first year.
My cases vary considerably I act for the whole range of clients from high net worth clients buying their dream properties or a second or third home, investor clients and first time buyers, along with downsizers and everything in between. I also specialise in shared ownership properties and have experience of both Help To Buy and Forces Help To Buy cases.
