To be voted by my brilliant peers in the Estate Planning sector as the “2022 Industry Champion” was as unexpected as it was amazing. To receive the award live from NASA in Florida is certainly something I’ll never forget!

It is truly one of the best accolades to have received and as the British Wills and Probate Awards are rightly termed as our sector’s “Oscars”. It has certainly given our business another edge in the minds of our clients and professional partners and I am truly grateful for that.
