I qualified as a solicitor in 1995 and joined Crane & Staples in April 2000, becoming a Partner with the firm in April 2003. I specialise in tax planning, wills and probate, trusts and general advice for the elderly, including powers of attorney and Court of Protection matters.
I was Honorary Secretary and Treasurer of the Hertfordshire Law Society from January 2002 until January 2008, when I became Vice-President. I served as the Hertfordshire Law Society President in 2009.
Outside the office
My sporting interests are very much of the outdoor variety – such as skiing, cycling and mountain walking (I am a member of Hertfordshire Mountaineering Club).
I also have a passion for history and a decent pint of real ale! Many of these activities have been somewhat curtailed since the birth of my two sons!
