About Jo

Jo is a senior paralegal with 45 years' experience at Langleys. During her time she has assisted thousands of people and their families in dealing with their wills, administering their estates and drafting lasting powers of attorney.

Jo started her career in the probate department as an office junior. 

Considering what she feels is the most rewarding part of her role at the firm, Jo notes, ‘assisting clients on the loss of loved ones, taking away the administration stresses to allow them time to grieve’.

Jo fronts and participates in ‘Free Wills Month’ and Will Aid.  These are charity schemes each year where Langleys agree to do a Will and  raise monies for charity via legacies.  Over the years that Jo has coordinated these schemes, she has helped to raise hundreds of thousands of potential legacies to deserving UK charities.

Service expertise

Court Of Protection

When it comes to the care of our loved ones, ensuring that decisions are made in their best interests is always a priority. If a family member can no longer make their own decisions regarding their finances and other affairs, our Court of Protection solicitors can help.

Inheritance Tax & Succession Planning

Inheritance Tax, a duty paid on your property and belongings after death, can take a sizable portion out of the gift you wish to pass on. With expert planning, you can significantly reduce this impact. Based in York and Lincoln and helping clients across the UK, our friendly team of solicitors offer expert inheritance tax planning advice, helping you plan your estate, making it as tax efficient as possible to maximise the benefit of your financial legacy.

Lasting Powers of Attorney

A Lasting Power of Attorney is an extremely important document. It allows you to choose someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf, should you lack mental capacity in the future to make those decisions yourself.  They are vitally important documents that will give you and your family confidence at what will often be a very difficult time.

Private Clients

Wills & Probate

Perhaps, because it involves a subject, we least like to think about, many of us never get around to making a Will, despite it being one of the most important documents you could ever need.
