Joined Lawson West: 2017.
Andrea has spent 30 years as a specialist in the field of dealing with Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, the Administration of Estates and the Court of Protection. She qualified in 1977 after completing her law degree in Leicester and her post-graduate qualification in Guildford.
Based on Lawson-West’s positive local reputation in both the community and in legal circles, Andrea was keen to join the firm when a position in the Wills department became available and has been working with us since 2017.
Andrea has over 30 years private client experience and has handled all types of estates from small and simple to complex taxable estates including estates involving foreign assets. Andrea also has extensive experience in preparing Trusts, Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney and making applications to the Court of Protection.
Andrea is also responsible for supervising and training unqualified members of the team.
She comments: “Bereavement is one of the top three most stressful events a person can go through and part of my job is to guide and advise people through this difficult time. When presented with a carrier bag full of paperwork that hasn’t been looked at or reviewed for a number of years, I find it satisfying to help clients create sense and order.”
