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.
I have the pleasure of working with people of all ages to bring security to their families by protecting their property and assets using Wills, Trusts and Lasting Powers of Attorney.In 2014 I re-trained and qualified as an Estate Planner; 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 Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney and other suitable planning isn’t in place, resulting in 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 musical events.
Areas of Practice
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

Finally, we have put our affairs in order and sorted our wills. Brenda was brilliant! She is very knowledgeable, patient (needed in our case!). The whole process was handled with sensitivity, understanding and a touch of humour. We would highly recommend Brenda to anyone who needs a will. We know our kids will thank us for it - everything is clear cut and easy to understand. Thanks Brenda!

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 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.

Brenda helped me sort out my Will recently as well as put in place a trust for my children. What I really liked about working with Brenda, is her calm and patient approach to what is, quite a difficult subject matter. No question was too silly and she spent as long as was required to explain the ins and outs of different aspects of Will writing. Highly recommended.
