Probate Lawyer, Manchester
Sian Davies is a probate lawyer based in our Manchester office, specialising in Probate Law and Estate Administration.
Sian started her career at Co-op Legal Services as a Probate Assistant and has progressed to Associate Probate Case Manager, building up a varied case load.
Sian has experience dealing with complex and technical Estate administration issues together with smaller non-taxable Estates. This includes advising on Inheritance Tax and Capital Gains Tax throughout the Estate administration process.
She also has experience in administering Estates where the deceased person has not made a Will and their Estate must be divided amongst their closest relatives. This can involve a large number of Beneficiaries, complicating the Estate administration process.
Sian recognises that her clients are dealing with the death of a loved one and ensures that she explains often complex matters in a way that is easy to understand. She enjoys helping clients during this difficult time and relieving them of the stresses of dealing with the Estate administration process.
In addition, Sian provides a high level of customer service and strives to build a good relationship with clients and third parties. She is pleased for her customers when she is able to finalise an Estate in a shorter timeframe than estimated.
