Jennifer Duckett

Solicitor - Private Client

Career History

I graduated from the University of Wales Aberystwyth in 2007 with a degree in Law, and completed my Legal Practice Course the following year, at the University of Westminster.  I joined Neves in 2010 as a paralegal, the same year I began my training contract.  I completed my training contract in 2012 and qualified into the firm’s Private Client department.

Recent Cases

Preparation of Wills, matters relating to Powers of Attorney - including Enduring Powers of Attorney, drafting Declarations of Trust, Deputyship applications, Court of Protection applications, complete administration of taxable and non-taxable estates, applications for Grant of Probate/Grant of Letters of Administration, and professional attorney/deputy work.  

I am able to offer bespoke advice depending on the circumstances of my clients.

I appreciate that often my advice is given during difficult times, and I always try to approach my work with empathy and respect.

What makes me human

I do love spending time with my family and friends, and I’m partial to travel and the odd outdoor pursuit, but my absolute guilty pleasure,  and I’m sure to go down in estimations because of this confession, is reality TV!
