Claire is well established in the community of Holsworthy having attended Holsworthy Primary School and Holsworthy Community College and then continuing with higher education whilst also working at Peter Peter & Wright.

In her spare time (which is limited as she has 2 young children!) Claire enjoys swimming and spending time at home with her family.

Claire is extremely approachable and enjoys the varied nature of her work. She fully appreciates the careful and sensitive approach that is often required in private client work.

She says: “When assisting in the administration of an Estate I am aware that this can be an extremely upsetting and stressful time for clients who have recently lost a loved one. I have received many offers of thanks from clients who have found my sympathetic approach a comfort during such a difficult time.”

Claire became a Professional Member of Solicitors for the Elderly in February 2013, further strengthening her role as a specialist Probate and Elderly Client solicitor.
