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
I have had my first session with Brenda to sort out all my personal affairs. She is lovely, puts you at ease with difficult subjects and is really thorough and professional. I'd absolutely recommend her.
After dithering about updating my will for ages and having heard lots of good things about Brenda, I got in touch with her. Brenda's warm and friendly approach meant that I felt comfortable explaining a fairly twiddly family set-up to her. She was also able to explain the range of options available to me clearly so that I was able to make a decision and make plans that suit my circumstances. All in the comfort of my home. Thank you Brenda for your help. Highly recommended.
Brenda has a wealth of knowledge and bags of patience. highly recommended
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
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.
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.
Thank you Brenda for your help with our Will, feeling more secure now!
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.
