During our meeting we’ll consider the eventualities in life that could affect your wishes and to make you are aware of all the options available to you. I will ensure that you achieve the protection and certainty you require, so that you can be confident that the ones you care for most will benefit fully from your inheritance.
In 2014 I re-trained and qualified to become an Estate Planner to enable me to assist people of all ages to plan how they would like to protect their family, property and assets. This was an ideal career change for me as I’ve always been interested in Legal Matters; I studied Business Law at College and I was a Magistrate in North West Durham for several years. I’m at an age where I’ve seen what can happen within families when suitable planning isn’t in place, and the resulting needless devastation, heartache & expense. I’m passionate about helping families ensure that what they’ve worked long and hard for is left to those they intend. I’ve always been an active member of the Community as a former school governor and a member of various committees. I’m fortunate to have a growing family of Grandchildren, I’m a keen walker, cook and gardener. I’m a member of a local community Samba Band and I’m often found at local events.
Areas of Practice
Brenda has a wealth of knowledge and bags of patience. highly recommended
Brenda is fantastic, she's helpful, professional and friendly.
Brenda did a talk at a business club I attend recently about how to protect ourselves and our families financially when it comes to wills, trusts and power of attorney. She explained things really closely and gf as definitely given me did for thought, so great to hear someone discussing protecting the many what if, so you don't have to work then out for yourself. Highly recommended
I attended an overview session with Brenda today looking at personal and business resilience in the event of illness, disability or death. Brenda really knows her stuff and I have already arranged my will and family trust through her. Highly recommended as someone who talks in everyday terms and gets the right package to meet your needs.
Brenda gave a talk on protecting yourself and your business to a group of local businesses. VERY knowledgeable, REALLY easy to understand, and ABSOLUTELY took the fear out of some of the processes involved, definitely recommend Brenda
I've known Brenda for over a year now and I'd happily recommend her to anyone who needs advice and guidance regarding Wills, Trusts and Legacy Planning.
I 1st met Brenda at a networking event where I said to her: "My situation is a bit complicated" to which she replied: "Everyone's situation is complicated!" and put me right at ease. She was probably right too!! I have now sorted my will out from the comfort of my own home as Brenda came to me twice. She was so patient and lovely whilst being professional and getting me to think properly about things. I feel better now knowing everything is in place and I have an up-to-date will. Thank you Brenda! I strongly recommend your services!
Brenda has that rare combination of extensive knowledge and the ability to communicate it clearly and appropriately. I attended an introductory session for sole traders and came away confident that I knew what my next steps need to be. Thank you Brenda.
