Victoria creates order in her clients’ personal and financial affairs.
She advises on how to plan for the future, so clients can have peace of mind knowing their assets, money and legacy are protected and will go where and to the people they choose. This includes writing and updating wills, putting lasting powers of attorney (LPA) in place and advising clients on how to protect their wealth, for both them and their family.
Victoria is a full member of Solicitors for the Elderly
, which means she puts people at their ease, explains things in clear, easy to understand terms, and is aware of the health and social problems clients may be facing.
She is also an associated member of the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners
, which specialises in helping families to make wise decisions with a view to future inheritance tax liabilities and succession planning.
Qualifying as a solicitor in 2003, Victoria has spent her career specialising in private client and family law. She joined Horsey Lightly in 2004 and, after a short career break to start and focus on her young family, returned in 2017, continuing to offer sensitive and practical support to clients old and new. Victoria is a popular and much valued asset within the team and with her clients.
Some of Victoria’s work highlights

- Setting up lasting power of attorneys (LPA) for a couple in their fifties who don’t have children.
- Simplifying the probate (property, money and possessions) of a complex estate.
- Reviewing the estate of a wealthy client to minimise the future tax implications and enable more to be passed down to family members.
“Just to say thank you for all the work you did in respect of my Lasting Powers of Attorney, you did extremely well.”
Life beyond the office
When she can tear herself away from her family and friends, Victoria is a veritable bookworm.
