Susan started her career in the legal environment in the 1980s working for the London firm Linklaters, then moved to regional firm Cripps during the 1990s. She’s held a number of legal positions over the years and has decided to specialise in probate within the Probate and Estate Management team based in Uckfield.
Susan is the dedicated contact for a number of clients whom tend to be bereaved family members, close friends of the deceased or Professional Executors.
Experience and approach
Probate administration can be complicated and Susan takes care to break down her explanations and use layman terms so it’s easier for her clients to understand. She’s experienced at listening, a skill invaluable when working with people during a difficult time in their lives, and is empathetic and professional in all her dealings with clients and third parties.
Susan relishes the challenge of investigative work and decided to choose probate for her career as she enjoys working directly with clients and seeing first hand how her efforts help people. Susan is an Associate of The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx).
