In Jess' capacity as an Associate Court of Protection Solicitor, her responsibilities span a broad spectrum. From advising clients on complex matters like statutory wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney to representing them in Court of Protection hearings, the legal work is undoubtedly intricate. However, what fuels Jess' daily practice is a deep-rooted commitment to demystifying the law for those who find it most daunting. Empowering clients through clear, accessible advice is not just a job requirement; it's a personal mission.
This dedication to making legal services accessible isn't confined to the courtroom or the office. It's a commitment Jess has carried through different phases of her career, whether it's volunteering to protect the rights of those who can't afford legal services or blogging to make complex legal subjects more approachable for the public.
But law isn't just about statutes and case law; it's about people. That's where collaboration and relationship-building come into play. Jess believes in forming lasting partnerships with my clients and their families, as well as with other professionals in multidisciplinary teams. This collaborative ethos ensures not only that legal solutions are tailored to individual needs, but also that they are reached through a process that respects and values the input of everyone involved. It's this blend of legal expertise and ‘human touch’ that forms the cornerstone of her practice.
