Wills & Probate
Hugh is a partner with our Wills & Probate team. He is a born and bred Islander and a familiar face in legal circles, having qualified in 1997 and worked locally throughout. Hugh joined us in 2011 and has over 12 years’ experience in Wills and Probate work. He was also the Isle of Wight’s Deputy Coroner for several years supporting John Matthews. The majority of Hugh’s work is spent drawing up Wills,Administration of Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney, obtaining grants of probate and administering the deceased’s estate. About 10% of his workload is spent acting as attorney or deputy for people who have lost capacity and not had the foresight to draw up a Lasting Power of Attorney; resulting in Hugh being appointed by the court to act for them.
In his spare time
Hugh enjoys playing the guitar Bluegrass style, reads, camps and walks around the Isle of Wight.
