I am a Solicitor in the Wills, Trusts and Probate department at Crane & Staples.
I joined the firm in 2014 and completed my training contract in 2017. In October 2020, I became an Associate Solicitor.
I specialise in Private Client law and advise on a broad range of matters, including:
- Lifetime succession and estate planning including advice on the mitigation of Inheritance Tax
- Administration of estates of all sizes and complexities (commonly known as Probate)
- Creation and administration of trusts (including Declarations of Trust relating to property)
- Preparation and registration of Lasting Powers of Attorney
- Applications to the Court of Protection and other mental capacity issues
I enjoy meeting customers face to face and I am really passionate about helping people through what can be a difficult and emotional time.
I am also a member of the Law Society’s Wills and Inheritance Quality Scheme (WIQS). This is the recognised quality mark for legal professionals in drafting wills and dealing with estate administrations.
In June 2019, I won the Hertfordshire Law Society’s Junior Lawyer of the Year Award.
Outside the office
Outside of work I like to spend as much time as possible socialising with friends and family. I am a massive foodie and love trying out different kinds of foods and restaurants. I frequent the gym as much as possible, and I am also a keen skier and try to go at least once a year.
Georgina Donnellan did an excellent job when obtaining probate on my mother's estate. Her approachability, knowledge, efficiency and speed were first rate.
Georgina, thank you for the professional and efficient manner in which you have dealt with the estate. Your Lawyer of the Year accolade is clearly well merited.
I cannot recommend Georgina Donnellan more highly. She handled my mother in law’s estate and probate with expertise and skill in a very confident, efficient and friendly manner. She was very quick in solving any problems and issues that arose, and was constantly ensuring things were kept moving. She always responded well to any questions asked. An overall excellent service.
