Supporting your ambitions
One of Lucy's highlights included acting for an adult daughter who was not left any provision in her mother's last will. Working with a more senior member of the team, Lucy obtained a very successful outcome for the client at mediation, meaning the family came to an amicable resolution outside of court.
What do others say?
Lucy recently worked for a client in connection with a complex trust dispute who said "I would like to thank Lucy for her help. I really felt besieged and she completely turned the tables and made them back down. I would not hesitate to recommend Lucy personally to people."
