More about Sharon

We asked Sharon:

Q: What do you love about your job?
A: Meeting new people and being able to assist them in preparing for the future.  Also helping people through difficult times.

Q: What can clients expect from you?
A: A friendly and efficient service.

Q: What do your clients like about you?
A: I’m easy to talk to.  I think clients also like that I deal with things as quickly as I can and assist them when they are going through difficult times.

Q: Why did you choose to specialise in Wills, Trusts and Probate and Court of Protection?
A: Part of my training contract was in the Wills and probate department and I really enjoyed it, that is what I wanted to carry on doing once qualified.

Q: Which of your achievements are you most proud of?
A: On a professional level, I am obviously proud of my qualifications but also being part of a strong probate team here at Switalskis. On a personal level, my children have to be my proudest achievements.

Q: What do like to do in your time outside work?
A: Before having children, I used to enjoy walking and in time, when the children are old enough, I look forward to doing more of that. At the moment, my spare time is taken up with them but I do enjoy reading a good book when I get the chance. I also like to get out and about with my family at weekends and tend to visit local places such as Nostell Priory and Newmillerdam.
