Helen is the Private Client Solicitor based in our Kirkby Lonsdale office.

Upon qualifying as a Solicitor Helen initially specialised in all aspects of family law before  moving to Cumbria in 2014 to specialise in private client. Helen became a member of the Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners (STEP) to increase her knowledge and expertise gaining full accreditation in 2018.

Helen appreciates that sometimes clients require advice and assistance when they are emotionally vulnerable and prides herself on her approachable manner, caring nature and ability to guide clients through the process, providing advice they are able to understand, which means she frequently acts for more than one generation of a family and builds trusting and longstanding relationships with clients.
