Louise Chadwick (TEP)
Louise is based at Halesworth, acting as invaluable Office Manager and Probate Assistant.
Although born in Lowestoft, Louise spent her growing years in South Africa, returning to her Suffolk roots after qualifying as a Certified Accountant in London.
She was recruited by Cross Ram & Co in 2001 as Cashier. Recognising her gift for number crunching, the firm encouraged her to continue her professional development and in 2009 she became a full member of the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners, with additional certification in Will Preparation.
This has led to an important role as a qualified Probate Assistant: applying for Grants of Probate or Letters of Administration for estates on behalf of the heirs and administering the estates thereafter, calculating Inheritance Tax (if applicable) as well as preparing Wills and Codicils, Lasting Powers of Attorneys and Appointment of Deputies. Clients appreciate how sensitively she guides them through the potential minefields inherent in these issues.
Louise is involved with the local community and very much enjoys working with clients from the area.
