Tanya joined the firm in April 2019 and is a member of the private client team based at our Gravesend office. After qualifying as a solicitor in 2011, Tanya started her career as a residential conveyancer, but since 2018 she has worked in private client.
Tanya's areas of specialism are the preparation of wills and powers of attorney, inheritance tax planning, estate administration and advising on and assisting with applications to the Court of Protection.
What Tanya says:
I started my legal career by studying Law and Accountancy at the University of Dundee. After graduating in 2004, I spent a number of years specialising in residential conveyancing before qualifying as a solicitor in 2011. After I qualified I became interested in private client and in 2018 decided to retrain and specialise in this area of law.
I am a full member (TEP) of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners after completing the STEP diploma with a distinction in July 2020.
What makes me different from other lawyers is the varied scope I have on law firm services. Being a kind and considerate lawyer in times of high emotion and stress can really put people at ease, explaining everything in simple terms is the key to a trusting relationship with my clients.
Outside of work I enjoy crafting and working with metal clay to create unique pieces of jewellery. I also regularly attend local dementia groups and I am proud to be a dementia friend.
If I were not a lawyer, I would be…
A jeweller, I find the whole process of making jewellery very calming and it satisfies my perfectionist streak.
If I were stranded on a desert island and could take 3 pieces of music with me, they would be…
I would take three books by Rachel Abbott. A page turning psychological thriller would make me forget I was stranded!
