Charlotte Smith

Trainee Legal Executive - Wills, Trusts & Probate

What's your role?

Since graduating from my university Law course last year I have been a part of the Private Client team, and am an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives.

Alongside my studies to become a Chartered Member, I work with the team and with clients on a variety of matters including drafting Wills, applying for Probate, administering estates and drafting and registering Lasting Powers of Attorney. I deal with new enquiries too, meaning I have to be quick-thinking and stay up to date with changes in the law in order to best assist our clients.

Which five words best describe you?

1. Conscientious

2. Determined

3. Efficient

4. Approachable

5. Enthusiastic

Three things we didn't know about you?

  1. I’m a keen netball player in my district League.
  2. One of my biggest (and most terrifying!) achievements is singing and dancing on stage for an audience of 1400 people.
  3. I’m a big fan of the Great British Bake Off and challenge myself to test the technical recipe challenges every week… some weeks are more successful than others!


Thank you for all of your assistance – you were very patient with me when I couldn’t get my head around everything.
