Sarah Begley

Wills and Probate Executive

Sarah is a key member of our Gravesend based Wills & Probate team with a wealth of experience. In particular, she has expertise in Will writing, Probate, Lasting Powers of Attorney, registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection applications.

What Sarah says:

“I started my training as a Legal Executive in London in 1983 with a small but prestigious Law firm in Gray’s Inn, London. I moved to a much larger firm after several years in order to expand my knowledge and experience overall in Private Client law and later expanded this even further with another legal firm in Bedford Row, London.

After raising my family, I joined Martin Tolhurst Solicitors in April 2004 and enjoy the variety of my role here – particularly the client interaction. Every day is different and I believe there is always room to learn something new.

I am a member of the Kent Law Society and regularly keep up to date with any changes in private client law. I see my clients at Gravesend and Ashford. If you are not able to come to the office I also see clients in their own home or nursing home. My aim is to explain legal issues in a simple manner to my clients and I receive a lot of positive feedback to this effect.

Outside of work I enjoy walking, trips to the cinema and my two book club memberships suggest I enjoy reading too. I am involved in my local church – running our annual fete and also assisting in the youth group too. Free time is precious to me as having 4 children means that there is always somewhere to be or something to be done (even though some have left home!)”

If I were not a lawyer, I would be...

Running my own business selling craft and homemade goods, I have always been a creative person and when my children were younger and I was a full time mum this was something I was able to explore and develop.
