Leonie Merrifield, ACILEx Paralegal


I have worked in probate for almost 20 years, building my experience with three Somerset firms.  I studied with the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives gaining an Associate CILEx qualification and, in addition to probate, I have previously dealt with Lasting Power of Attorney and Court of Protection applications and then managed annual Court of Protection accounts on behalf of deputies. I joined this firm in challenging times in 2020, and enjoy working with an experienced, dynamic, good-natured team. My focus has always been on the client, - their needs and concerns - which fits perfectly with our ethos.

I have lived and worked in Belgium, the Middle East, Oxfordshire, and the Dordogne province of France; and worked in engineering and creative industries, acquiring business, book-keeping, management and administration skills, before settling into law.

Family wise, I have four children, all now self-sufficient and independent.  I have a lifelong love of country and  coastal walks, music, and craft skills.
