As I work from home I am able to be very flexible with appointments. I can offer appointments in the early evening or at weekends. I do not usually work on Monday.

I usually see clients at my office at home, but can travel to you if necessary. When requesting a visit to your premises please do bear in mind that in most cases I will make an additional charge for time spent travelling.

I have been a notary since 1994 and have experience in a wide range of general notarial practice.
