It is Helena’s responsibility to deal with the administration of estates, whether straightforward or more complex and the preparation of Inheritance tax forms and Probate applications. It is really important to Helena to help Executors and family members through a difficult and sad time by taking as much of the work and worry away from them as possible.

Legal matters can be difficult to understand.  Helena’s aim is to make meetings  and conversations as relaxed and straightforward as possible.

When not working, Helena enjoys hiking and recently got the ‘running bug’.  She has completed several 10k races and enjoys the sense of achievement.
