Jacqui is experienced in advising clients in all Will, probate, trust and attorney matters. Her work includes helping transform clients' ‘wish lists’ into valid Wills, setting up trusts to help surviving relatives protect property, particularly where there is a disabled child, and to make the best arrangements to avoid tax and other charges.
Jacqui assists executors and trustees with the administration of estates, dealing with the Revenue, ensuring that opportunities are not missed to re-direct assets in the light of changed or changing circumstances. In these cases assistance can mean either dealing with a specific problem or undertaking complete responsibility from death to distribution.
Jacqui can also help put in place a Lasting Power of Attorney to enable others to act on behalf of a client with respect to their financial affairs or health and welfare. It is crucial to make provision for future mental incapacity and in so doing avoiding the possibility of an expensive and time consuming application to the Court of Protection to obtain an order for the same purpose.
