Based at our Trowbridge office, Jenny also often visits clients in their homes, in hospital or nursing homes. She recognises how daunting the preparation of Wills and Powers of Attorney can seem and always aims to lead her clients through the process with clarity and empathy.
Jenny’s work often brings her into contact with people at the most challenging time imaginable, when a loved one has passed away. Clients value her professional and practical support at such times.
