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!

How can you get in touch with me?

Preparing for the Autumn sales - your consumer rights

As we prepare to descend on the shops to take advantage of the Autumn sales, Claire Bond, Legal Executive in the Civil Litigation team,  considers that it is worthwhile going armed with a little knowledge of our consumer rights. Claire says, “Studies have shown that almost half of the population do not know their consumer rights and almost a third of us lose money through not understanding what we are entitled to”.
