Assistant Solicitor


Hayley is a solicitor in the Wills, Trust, Tax and Probate department. Her work includes advising on and preparing Wills; registering Enduring Powers of Attorney and Lasting Powers of Attorney; making Deputyship applications; the administration of both testate and intestate estates; estate planning including post death variations; the preparation of Declarations of Trust and other trust related work.

Hayley is a full member of Solcitors for the Elderly (SFE)  and a student member of the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners currently studying the diploma in Trusts and Estates (England and Wales) having passed the Administration of Estates module with a distinction.

One of the most rewarding aspects of Hayley's  work is being able to help and support clients through challenging and/or distressing times such as the death of a loved one or concerns regarding the capacity of an elderly relation. Hayley works hard to develop strong working relationships of trust and confidence with her clients and aims to deal with all matters efficiently and with empathy

Hayley obtained an LLB Law Degree from the University of Exeter in 1996 before undertaking  the Legal Practice Course at the University in 1997.  She joined Tees Law as a trainee solicitor in 1997 and qualified as solicitor into the Litigation department in 1999.  Subsequent to this, Hayley had some time away from the firm working as a Law Lecturer at the College of Law London on a number of their post graduate programmes before taking a career break to raise her three children. During this time she was involved in a number of voluntary positions including being a community mentor at a local secondary school and Chair of Governors at a local primary school.

In May 2016 Hayley was delighted to re-join Tees Law as part of  the Wills, Trusts, Tax and Probate team.
