Suzanne Evans

Head of Court of Protection

I re-joined Buckles Solicitors in September 2017 as Head of Court of Protection, having qualified with the firm as a member of the Private Client team twelve years before. In the intervening twelve years, I headed up Court of Protection teams at two other law firms.

I am experienced in all general private client matters, such as Wills, Powers of Attorney, Trusts and administration of estates. I am a specialist in Court of Protection matters, including Deputyship and Statutory Will applications, and act as Deputy in managing the financial affairs on behalf of several clients.  I have successfully obtained Health and Welfare Deputyship Orders in a number of cases and I assist professional and lay deputies in the administration of the financial affairs of vulnerable and elderly clients.

I am naturally interested in people and recognise the importance of putting my clients at ease.  I am a Dementia Champion, a member of the CoPPA and the Professional Deputies Forum.

Out of the office, I am a mother to two active children, I run a book club, I love going to the cinema, and enjoy yoga. I am a member of a gospel choir which has set up a Dementia Choir for my local area (and for which, as a Dementia Champion, I provided Dementia Information sessions so all the choir members could become Dementia Friends and help improve the lives of people living with dementia).
