Having a specialist of Cindy’s calibre and experience helping to look after our clients’ interests will be of enormous benefit to them and to the firm.” Cindy, who lives in Leyland, said: “Wills and probate is an area of the law with many different aspects to it and one that applies to every individual. I’m thoroughly looking forward to working with our clients across the region, helping them to make important decisions about the future.”
