Michaela’s clients

Most of Michaela’s clients are bereaved individuals who are trying to deal with the estate of a loved one who has passed whilst grieving their loss. She assists them with the estate by obtaining a grant of probate for them and with cashing in the funds of the estate, paying out any liabilities and distributing the estate on their behalf.

Experience and approach

Michaela has worked in the legal industry for the last 10 years. While working at a prior firm, she started in the Personal Injury sector before crossing over to private client. Here, she gained experience in Will writing, creating Lasting Powers of Attorney and dealing with probate matters from start to finish. She started at Rix & Kay Solicitors in August 2023 as a Probate Executive where she deals with a wide range of probate matters; whether this be fairly simple estates or complex estates, she deals with inheritance tax forms, probate applications and distribution.
