Based in our Cowbridge office, Donna is a Legal Advisor within the Lifetime Planning Team, specialising in Wills and LPAs, having joined JCP in January 2019 when returning home to Wales after an absence of 34 years.
Donna is a Graduate Member of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives and has advised on Wills, LPAs and Probate matters since 2015. Donna has submitted her application and is hoping to be admitted as a Fellow of CILEx in the near future.
After many years working in IT, Donna began studying Law in 2010 and in 2012 attained the ‘Student of the Year’ award at Hertford Regional College for her achievements with her CILEx studies.
Donna undertook training in 2019 to become a Dementia Friend. A Dementia Friend learns more about what it is like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into action.
Donna is a compassionate communicator, able to put people at their ease and take them through the legal process that they need to undertake, be that in relation to a Will, putting in place a Lasting Power of Attorney or a Probate Application.
Donna aims to make a difference to each client. With the ability to identify a vulnerable client, Donna is aware that she may be speaking with people during a very difficult time in their lives, particularly those that are dealing with the loss of a loved one or when trying to organise their affairs when difficult family situations/relationships exist.
For Donna, weekends are a time for spending with family in Wales and her sons in London and Hertfordshire.
