Who am I? Faye Evans TEP, Associate.
What do I do?
I work in the Private Client Department. I am a Member of Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners and Solicitors for the Elderly.
What can I help you with?
I deal with Probate and Administration of Estates, Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Trusts and Court of Protection Applications. I do some outreach work in the community; giving seminars to local groups, and I run the drop-in clinic at our Southsea office on the first Wednesday of the month. I also give talks to students of various ages (school leavers, university undergraduates etc.) about working in law.
What do I like most about my job?
People. My job is to help people deal with the legal aspects of some really difficult times in their life. I get to hear all their stories and it makes every day different because everyone’s story is different. I also like the more academically challenging aspects of my role which require navigation of complex legal problems.
What are my hobbies?
I have a vintage VW camper that I love going out camping in! I also bake and I write poetry.
Why did you decide to train to be a solicitor?
I got a job as a secretary in a local law firm because they needed someone who spoke German and I was fluent. Once I got there I realised I enjoyed the work so I completed my training contract with them and qualified as a Solicitor.
If you didn’t decide to become a lawyer, what would have done instead?
I came to law quite late. I have been a teacher, a farm inspector, a warehouse manager, I did import/export at Frankfurt Airport – you name it, I’ve done it!
