Joined Ellisons

Jeanette joined Ellisons as a trainee solicitor in 1982 having obtained an LLB (Hons) degree in Law. After qualifying as a solicitor in 1984, she has worked exclusively as a Private Client solicitor ever since.  After gaining further legal experience elsewhere, she returned to Ellisons in 1987 and was promoted to partner status in 1988.

Areas of Specialism

  • Complex and specialist Wills and Trusts, including Personal Injury Trusts and Trusts for Disabled Persons as well as Tax planning through Wills
  • Administration of estates and trusts, including those of a complex nature and/or high net worth
  • Advising the elderly in preparing and implementing Lasting Powers of Attorney and the ongoing management of their financial matters

Career overview

Since her return to Ellisons, she has seen the development and expansion of the Private Client department which now encompasses many more specialist areas.  Jeanette is a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners and the Private Client Section of the Law Society.

Jeanette is a ‘Dementia Friend’.  Dementia Friends learn more about what it is like to live with dementia and then turn that understanding into action. This helps our clients and their families just that little bit more.

In 2015, Jeanette was awarded a ‘Distinction’ in the STEP Advanced Certificate in advising Vulnerable Adults.  This shows her commitment to providing good quality advice to those dealing with issues of mental and physical incapacity.

Jeanette is also on the list of several charities as being a specialist who can provide advice to persons concerned to protect the interests of relatives who are vulnerable and/or who have learning disabilities.
