Top Professional Qualification for Probate Solicitor

Kate Maybury, solicitor at Raworths, Harrogate has been awarded full membership of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners.  STEP (the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) is a worldwide professional association which promotes education and high professional standards among its members.  STEP conducts rigorous examinations over a four year period before admitting practitioners to its 18,500-strong ranks.

Kate joins Raworths’ solicitor Maureen Gilroy-Thomas who is also STEP-qualified.  Kate’s specialisms are the preparation of wills, providing inheritance tax advice, applications to the Court of Protection, Lasting Powers of Attorney and the administration of trusts and estates.

“We now have two STEP-qualified solicitors on our team and one more currently undergoing the rigorous procedure to achieve full membership of STEP.  We are proud to be able to offer our clients excellent quality advice from solicitors who are highly qualified in their area of law. Where such important matters as estate planning are concerned, it is always best to check the qualifications of the professionals offering you advice.”

STEP’s members include lawyers, accountants, trust specialists and other practitioners in this area and its members help families plan for their futures, specialising in a wide range of activities, from drafting wills to more complex issues surrounding international families, protection of the vulnerable, family businesses and philanthropic giving.
