Josephine Walker, a Private Client and Probate Solicitor in Cumbria working for Brockbanks Solicitors, has been awarded Full Member status of the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP).
Josephine joins a select group of Solicitors in the North of England who have this qualification. At the time of writing there are only four solicitors in North & West Cumbria with full member status.
The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners is a global association for solicitors, accountants and other related professionals. STEP members specialise in probate, family inheritance and financial planning for individuals and businesses. Please click on their link above for further information.
STEP members help families plan for their futures. Services provided range from drafting a will to advising on issues concerning families and family businesses, protecting vulnerable people, and charitable donations. Full STEP members are known as TEPs. They are internationally recognised as experts in their field, with proven qualifications and experience.
Practice Manager John Branch said:
“We are thrilled that Josephine’s hard work has paid off, and that she now holds the highest accreditation to demonstrate her expertise in her field. Having Josephine supervising and leading our Private Client Team at Brockbanks is a clear indication to our clients that their matters will be handled to the highest possible standard and in accordance with globally recognised best-practice. We all wish to congratulate her on a job well done.”
Solicitors for the Elderly – Josephine’s other specialist accreditation
In addition to her full membership status with STEP, she is a full accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly. They are a separate association who specialise in legal services for older clients. As membership to Solicitors for the Elderly is voluntary, Josephine has chosen to complete additional specialist training with them as well to ensure that she is qualified to the highest possible standard.
