Jessica Savage

Solicitor

General Experience

I am a fully qualified member of the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP). I qualified as a solicitor at Milners in November 2012 and specialise in Private Client Law dealing with a wide range of wills, trusts, probate cases, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Court of Protection of work and administration of estates.

Recent Cases

I am currently dealing with the administration of a multimillion pound estate having prepared the complex Will and Trusts during the deceased’s lifetime.

I have acted on behalf many high wealth clients in the preparation of Discretionary and other Trusts. I have also recently acted for a very successful local business in the preparation of an Employee Benefit Trust.

I deal with the day to day administration of a number of large Trusts.

I have prepared all types of Wills from basic mirror Wills to complex Will Trusts covering the needs of all clients.

The number of Lasting Power of Attorney and Court of Protection cases that I am dealing with is increasing significantly as people become more aware of the huge importance of this work.

Background

After completing my law degree, I took a year out to travel in South America and then went on to study the Legal Practice Course in Sheffield. Following this I worked in a large city centre firm in Sheffield dealing mainly with Wills and Probate and Landlord and Tenant work. I moved to Leeds to join Milners in April 2010 and completed my training contract with them.

Interests

I like to spend as much time as possible outside and fill my weekends with horse riding, walking or biking. I try to keep fit and like to set myself regular challenges climbing Kilimanjaro in 2012 and completing my first triathlon in 2013. This year I plan to compete in a number of triathlons and half marathons, finishing with the Yorkshire Marathon in October. I enjoy snowboarding and scuba diving and like to travel when I have the chance. When the weather makes outdoor activities less desirable I enjoy reading, going to the gym and visits to the theatre.
