She most enjoys working with vulnerable clients, showing compassion, kindness and understanding to their often difficult circumstances. Clients can expect a kind, courteous and professional service from Gemma, delivered in a punctual manner.

Gemma is also happy to visit clients at home to discuss their requirements. Please call Gemma at our Southwell office to arrange this.


Gemma is an Associate of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, also known as STEP, the global association for practitioners who specialise in family inheritance and succession planning.

Additionally, Gemma is an accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly, a national association of lawyers who specialise in older client law. She is able to offer independent and confidential advice which is in the best interests of older or vulnerable clients.

She is also a Dementia Friends Champion. Set up by the Alzheimer’s Society, this programme encourages people to register as volunteers, who then encourage others to make a positive difference to people living with dementia in their community. They do this by giving them information about the personal impact of dementia, and what they can do to help.

  • Gemma was lovely. Explained everything I needed to know. Very knowledgeable and helpful.
