She comments: “My aim is to provide a high level of service which allows my clients to contact me whenever they need to. I understand that Wills and Probate have historically been over-complicated and difficult to understand, therefore I am always on the end of the telephone to explain any questions my clients may have, to make their experience as smooth as possible.”

Client testimonials:

“I felt unhurried and like I mattered.”


"When my brother sadly passed away earlier this year, I was faced with a mountain of forms and no idea what to do. After several unsuccessful attempts at completing probate forms, I turned to Phoebe who kindly spared me some of her free time to help me through the process. As well as saving me thousands of pounds in fees, Phoebe helped take a huge weight from my shoulders. She was very patient, extremely kind, and communicated the complex legal situation with a vast amount of understanding and care. Following months of difficulty, Phoebe’s assistance brought an immediate resolution that was so vital to me and my family. I am extremely grateful to her for all of her help.”


"I met Phoebe through her work at Lawson West solicitors, when she was recommended by a colleague as a specialist in Court of Protection and Attorneys. I’ve always found her to be professional in her approach and very personable in the way she deals with people. I referred a particularly challenging client to her and she dealt with the information and the difficult situation with expertise and humanity.

My own knowledge of the law is limited so to have a specialist such as Phoebe to ask for advice is incredibly useful. I would highly recommend her."
