Janet Deller

Probate Executive

Jan first joined Rix & Kay over thirty years ago when she was a secretary to a Senior Partner in the wills, probate and trusts department.  She took a break from the legal professional to be a residential social worker and to work in Local Government but joined us again in 2008 choosing to specialise in probate administration.

Jan’s Clients

Jan’s caseload typically involves bereaved families or individuals but she also handles probate for Professional Executors.  Her experience has benefitted many clients over the years.

Experience and approach

Jan enjoys working closely with clients when dealing with probate.  She’s skilled at listening and reassuring her clients through a difficult time in their lives and tries to accommodate (client’s varied expectations).  She instinctively knows when clients want regular contact, or a bit of time to digest information, and works hard to deliver an efficient completion so that clients can have some closure when dealing with the death of a loved one.

Areas of expertise

• Grant of Probate Applications
• Administration of Estates
• Tracing missing beneficiaries
