I was born in Barton on Sea, grew up in this area and have spent nearly all of my working life in New Milton. My first degree was in biochemistry, and later I retrained to qualify as a solicitor.
I started my legal career doing residential conveyancing, wills and probate, and some years later took on litigation and family work. My current case load mainly comprises commercial and property development work, business dealings and wills, with a modest amount of litigation.
I have sat on the main committee of the Hampshire Incorporated Law Society since 1993 and was President of HILS in 2002. I am currently the Chair of Education and Training for that Society.
I have great pride in my team, all of whom will be pleased to assist you in dealing with your legal requirements.
Following a 30 year career with a major bank I joined Anthony Harris & Company as Probate Manager in 2001, where I cover all aspects of probate, general management and trust administration.
Although my work has taken me throughout Hampshire and the Channel Islands, I have lived locally since 1976, and always aim to provide help and support during difficult times.
I grew up in the small coastal town of Ilfracombe in North Devon. I moved to Southampton in 2004 where I studied Law at Southampton Solent University. On completion of my degree I worked in Christchurch, before returning back to Southampton Solent University in 2010 to complete a Masters Degree in Law.
I joined Anthony Harris and Company in April of 2016 and currently assist with residential conveyancing. I am an associate member of CILEx and currently studying on the Graduate Fast Track Program working towards becoming a Chartered Legal Executive.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and collecting vintage gaming memorabilia.
