The Coronavirus Pandemic has emphasised the importance of having your affairs in order and documents in place to ensure you and your assets are safeguarded. If you are worried about what might happen if you or someone you love become unable to make decisions for themselves, either as a result of an accident or a progressive mental illness like dementia, Shannon ensures lasting powers of attorney are put in place, together with an advance decision on medical treatment where a client is clear that they do not want to receive life-sustaining treatment to give piece of mind to those unable to make decisions for themselves and for their loved ones that they will be looked after.

For those wanting to set out how their estate is to be distributed on their death ensuring that loved ones are provided for, Shannon ensures wills are prepared and tax planning advice is provided.

Dealing with bereavement and with the affairs of someone who has just passed away can be extremely stressful and extremely emotional. Shannon prides herself in making clients feel at ease at such a difficult time and providing the advice needed to ensure that the client knows how to begin moving forward and what needs to be done in dealing with the administration of someone’s estate.

Shannon is based primarily at our Gravesend office but advises clients throughout Kent.
