People / Dawn Parkes
I have been the firm’s Managing Partner since 2014. In addition to my management responsibilities, I specialise in Private Client, and can assist you in all aspects of wills, probate, trusts and tax planning.
Following my degree course in Law at the University of East Anglia, I joined the firm in 1989. I am a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners.
What do others say?
The Legal 500 has stated that the firm “can be trusted to provide good advice” and has “a good capacity for finding solutions”. Dawn has been described as being “ friendly and client-focused”.
‘My experience with you has been excellent right from the start. You have always made me feel welcome and comfortable, have explained everything in a way that I can understand, never mind me asking questions, and let family come in with me.’
‘Your firm was very good from the onset to completion. We found Dawn very helpful at all times. Thank you very much.’
‘We were very satisfied and reassured by the expert professional advice we received on a family matter. The eventual outcome was achieved in a much less stressful way, under your guidance, than would have otherwise been the case.’
‘Each visit to the office was comfortable and laid back. Everything was explained in layman's terms to make understanding so much simpler without all the legal jargon which can be inhibiting. Dealing with my parents' estate was a pain free experience.’
