“I am a Partner at Furley Page Solicitors and head the Vulnerable Client Team. I joined Furley Page in January 2005, having previously worked for two large regional law firms. I have many years of experience in dealing with all aspects of private client work and am a specialist in elderly and vulnerable client matters.

I have been an Approved Panel Deputy of the Court of Protection for some years and was successfully reappointed to the panel following a rigorous selection process. I am the only Panel Deputy in East Kent and Medway and this is a reflection of my level of expertise in this highly specialised area of work. I act as a Deputy for those who no longer have the necessary level of capacity to manage their financial affairs.”
