Deborah Schmieder

Solicitor

Deborah trained at a small firm in London initially covering Immigration, Conveyancing, Private Client and Family Law, and upon qualifying moved to a larger renowned firm in London where she specialised in Family Law and Private Client.

She services the administration of estates often where there aren’t any issues, but, there are cases where the family dispute the deceased’s Will and disagree with how the deceased’s estate is to be distributed. She has several contentious probates where siblings are arguing over their entitlements. It is a difficult area where there has been a death, which is hard to cope with, but when in addition to that the children believe they have been left out of the estate or left less than they think they should have then the emotions run even higher. The same skills used to discuss matrimonial matters is useful here also, and the same skills apply.

Deborah is looking forward to supporting clients current and new, both in Minehead itself and the surrounding district.
