She is a member of the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS) and regularly acts in these disputes.

She also deals with linked professional negligence matters arising out of these circumstances.

What her clients say:
“Alison was fabulous. We were lucky to get somebody as genuine as her who made me feel safe in what we were doing at a really difficult time in our lives.”
“Her knowledge and advice have been invaluable.”
“As people who have been through such a dreadful nightmare of a dispute, we can honestly say that we wouldn’t have got through it without your calmness, diligence, judgement, knowledge and professionalism. You were always there to speak to or to email on the occasions where it was all too much for us. That was hugely important and so appreciated. We will always be grateful to you.”
“Her tenaciousness, meticulous attention to detail and sharp focus upon every element of the often bitter, mendacious and contentious probate claim made against us, encouraged our total confidence in her ability to deal with sensitive issues in a direct, assertive manner.”
