It comes after a lot of hard work and hours put in to achieve her dreams. She is a real asset to the firm and to our team, and this is just the beginning of another great chapter for her with TBI and with clients that she continues to support with her knowledge and expertise.”

Legal matters Laura will help you with include drafting Wills, the preparation and registration of Lasting Powers of Attorney, obtaining a grant of representation to an estate, dealing with the full administration of an estate and also Court of Protection matters.
