overview

Emma is a partner in our award-winning and Legal 500 Recommended Private Client team and a member of our award-winning Elderly Client and Vulnerable adult team.

Emma was Highly Commended Private Client Lawyer of the Year in the 2021 Surrey Law Society Legal Awards, a fitting recognition of her excellent contribution to the profession and her technical knowledge.

Emma holds a BA (Hons) in European Studies and Spanish from the University of Essex, and CILEx qualifications (levels 3 and 6) from the University of Westminister and CILEx Law School. She was admitted as a Fellow of the Chartered Legal Executive in 2015 and is a Full Accredited Member of The Association of Lifetime Lawyers (ALL), previously known as Solicitors for the Elderly. Emma was promoted to Partner in 2024.

Prior to joining Howell Jones, Emma worked at Osbornes Solicitors LLP in London. Before retraining as a legal executive, Emma worked at Title Research as a probate genealogist.

Emma’s specialism is in wills, estate administration, Court of Protection, lasting powers of attorney and trust administration.

Emma has had notable success across a number of cases. Here are details of some of her most prominent:

  1. Obtaining an urgent direction from the Court of Protection to enable an application for an interim possession order to evict squatters from P’s empty house.
  2. Re-sealing an Australia Grant of Representation for the estate of an Australian domiciled deceased to enable the English estate (which consisted of multiple shareholdings) to be dealt with.
  3. Dealing with the administration of a multi-million-pound estate consisting of six rental properties. This involved dealing with all of the tenancies to enable the properties to be sold at auction and liaising with HMRC to obtain clearance for undeclared income tax during the lifetime of the deceased.

When not working, Emma likes to relax with an occasional visit to the cinema and enjoys reading.

Wills and Probate

Taking control of what happens in the event of your death or incapacity isn’t the easiest thing to think about...

Lasting Powers of Attorney

Having a Lasting Power of Attorney gives you peace of mind that you and your affairs will be looked after...

Elderly and Vulnerable Client Services

Your older years should be a time of enjoyment but often they are affected by physical challenge, financial and legal...

Emma is a calm and confident lawyer, which is hugely helpful.

The advice given was concise and understandable. Emma took the time to be sure we understood fully everything she had said.

Thank you for your help with the probate, you are an absolute star.

Just a short note to thank you for the caring and efficient way you have dealt with Geoffrey’s estate. Your support throughout has been exemplary and much appreciated especially with the funeral. Geoffrey would have been very pleased. Thank you again.

I would like to take this opportunity of saying a big thank you for all the help, support and guidance you have given me over the previous months.

It was very much appreciated.

Let me take this opportunity to just say how great you have been over all this in the last few years. I really appreciated not having to deal with this and my sisters appreciated it too. I do in my day job have various discussions with law firms around corporate tax matters and in comparison, with that “corporate experience” (often unimpressive results). I have been very very impressed with you in particular (on the probate and our wills) and in Howell Jones in general (on the conveyancing)!

Thank you for taking this through to completion. I know at times this has probably involved a lot more work than anticipated. This has been a difficult and at times wretched experience however I am very grateful for your courtesy, professionalism and care in getting this done whilst always having our best interests to the fore. It has been a pleasure to have dealt with you.

I’m sure my sisters would join in thanking you for your excellent service.

The thought had occurred to me over the past couple of months that we might be approaching closure on my father’s Estate, and I’m glad that that is indeed the case. I’m grateful to Jess and Amira for the parts they played, and particularly to you for your calm and assured management of proceedings throughout.

I wish you every success and happiness in the times ahead.

Thank you once again for a great service and your patience and conscientious work.

I am delighted that everything is now settled satisfactorily and I would like to express my thanks to your team, and in particular Emma and Helen, who have dealt very sensitively and efficiently with all the complex matters that this has entailed.

Once again I would like to express our admiration for the thorough professionalism with which you have dealt with our LPA’s and the wills. We greatly appreciate too, that by looking at our previous wills, and identifying the weaknesses in those documents, you have protected the trustees from problems they otherwise would have had to deal with.

It has been a pleasure to work with you. I cannot recall ever having said that before to a member of the legal profession!

It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial for Howell Jones Solicitors. Their team is truly amenable and has created an unintimidating, pleasant, and welcoming environment for their clients. Their dedication to going the extra mile is commendable, and their fees are honest, excellent and easily comprehensible.

I have found it extremely beneficial to keep all of my affairs in the same practice, and I have been consistently impressed by the generosity of all of the staff.

I would like to express my gratitude to Amira for her diligence and effective communication skills and to Emma for her prompt, and assiduous completion of probate. Carolyn ensured that my enquires were always rapidly conveyed, and Nathan who showed empathy, understanding, and gave excellent advice.

Overall, based upon my experience, I would certainly use this firm again and highly recommend them.

Howell Jones Solicitors is an outstanding law firm that provides exceptional service and professionalism. Thank you all for your hard work.

Vivian Dalrymple

Thank you for your efficiency and approachability whilst dealing with the process of the administration of the estate. It was very reassuring to have your help throughout.

I would like to thank you for your service in managing the inheritance of the estate. Your professionalism, attention to detail, and timely communication have made a challenging process much more manageable.

I am grateful for your expertise throughout the entire legal procedure. Your efforts have not only ensured a smooth distribution of assets but have also provided reassurance during a sensitive time for our family.
