Kerry is a solicitor in Ashford's Disputed Wills team having retrained into this field.
Kerry joined the firm in September 2020 and now acts for both individual and charitable clients in bringing and defending claims or dealing with general disputes.
Her background is in disputes and litigation. After qualifying in 1996, Kerry has enjoyed a long career focused on personal injury and insurance litigation. Kerry practised locally before she was commissioned as a regular Captain in HM Army Legal Services in 1999-2000 when she served in Kosovo and Northern Ireland. Thereafter she represented Claimants in all aspects of injury litigation. In 2007 Kerry formed her own Company and provided a Small Claims Litigation Service on a Contingency fee basis having been authorised under the Claims Management Regulations 2006. More recently, whilst at her previous firm for almost a decade, Kerry specialised in Insurance litigation acting for multi-national insurance companies whilst also representing a wide range of clients at individual and corporate level.
In 2020, Kerry decided a change was in order and decided to use her litigation skills in this exciting and challenging area of law. She has completed the STEPS Certificate in Trusts and Estates and is also an Associate member of ACTAPS (Association of Contentious Trusts and Probate Specialists) having recently completed the ACTAPS course. Her knowledge and experience continues to expand against the backdrop of a sound litigation foundation.
