Sarah Westwood

Head of Estate Administration, Partner

I am the Head of our Estate Administration team and based in our Stamford office. I have 12 years’ experience of handling probate cases, a considerable proportion of which are taxable cases with quirky elements. As I also deal with lifetime planning cases, around a quarter of my cases are probate cases.

I generally specialise matters concerning Wills, tax planning, care home fees, and Powers of Attorney.

I speak fluent German, having spent a year studying law at Trier University. I trained at one of the leading Kent firms and have an established reputation throughout the Lincolnshire area.

Away from work I love spending time with my family – the older my boys get, the more I realise that you just don’t get the time back! I also enjoy shopping with friends, ideally including a glass of wine! I wish I could write that I love some form of exercise, but I seem to do anything I can to avoid it!

  • I must thank you, on behalf of the group, for the informative and incredibly useful seminar you provided for our members. You made the complex understandable and slightly less daunting for us all.
  • My clients describe Sarah as 'so easy to understand', 'absolutely amazing' and 'genuinely brilliant'
  • At every step we found Sarah to be knowledgeable, personable and approachable. The subject matter of wills, and powers of attorney is quite dark when you think about it, and that is not lost on Sarah. However, she treated us like human beings who have sensibilities and emotional ties to the "subject in hand". I couldn't recommend her or the firm more highly. Thank you
