Rebecca joins specialist Wills and probate team

Birchall Blackburn Law has announced the appointment of Rebecca Minto who joins the firm’s Preston office as solicitor.

Rebecca, who is from Poulton-le-Fylde, joins the private client team from Cobains in Blackpool.

She specialises in all aspects of wills, tax planning and probate. The new addition to the team also helps organise property, financial affairs and personal welfare for people who lack the mental capacity to make decisions for themselves.

Rebecca qualified as a solicitor in 2012 after attaining a masters in law from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) and completing a legal practice course at BPP Manchester.

She said: “BB Law has a great reputation and passion for helping clients with watertight inheritance plans, protecting their property, financial assets and personal possessions.”

Partner at Birchall Blackburn Law, Cathy MacCracken, said: “We are really pleased to welcome someone of Rebecca’s ability to the private client team.

“She has a real passion to help people and their families, often advising not just on Wills but the benefits of Court of Protection or Lasting Powers of Attorney. Her attention to detail ensures the client is always provided with the highest level of service.”

In her spare time, Rebecca is a keen athlete and is a member of Preston Tri, a local triathlon club. She is also a talented hockey player. Birchall Blackburn Law holds the prestigious Law Society’s quality mark in wills and inheritance demonstrating its commitment to client care and expertise in wills and inheritance law.
