Vicky Tassell

Senior Solicitor

I joined Buckles in April 2021 as a Senior Solicitor in the Private Client team and I’m based in our Cambridge office. I qualified in March 2016 and have specialised in Private Client work since then. My Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning gives me a good understanding of financial products and investments and how these interact with lifetime planning and wealth preservation.

I assist clients with all aspects of lifetime planning, such as the preparation of Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney and creating and administering lifetime Trusts. I have an Advanced Certificate in Estate Administration from the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners and am experienced in all aspects of applying for Probate.

It’s important to me that my services are accessible to people and my advice is easy to understand. I often become involved with people and families at really difficult times in their lives and I see my role as making the process as smooth as possible. To me, this means always being one step ahead and making sure that I keep my clients regularly updated.

I am a Trustee of Age UK Hertfordshire as I live in Hertfordshire with my partner.

I enjoy running and have recently completed my first half marathon.

  • We have recently completed our Wills and Lasting power of attorneys with Buckles, solicitors, at their Histon office and would like to thank them, in particular Vicky Tassell, for the way our requests were handled. In particular, exercising our wishes coupled with recommendations, and explaining the legal implications involved.

  • We recently engaged Vicky Tassell at Buckles Solicitors to handle some complex issues regarding my late father’s estate, which included IHT and property ownership transfer with the Land Registry. Vicky quickly understood what was required and discussed possible solutions and proceeded to handle all matters expertly and promptly. As a result the  probate on the estate was simplified and completed in a timely manner.

  • I would highly recommend Buckles Solicitors. I called Buckles when my father passed away and spoke to Vicky Tassell. She was brilliant, I had a long and in-depth conversation with her about the next steps regarding probate and she talked me through the process, allowing me to ask questions to ensure I really understood everything. She then also emailed me to follow up asking if I needed a video call to clarify anything. The whole probate process was amazingly quick and totally hassle free. I would not hesitate in recommending Vicky at Buckles, she always responded immediately to every phone call and email. It really was a first class service. Thank you.

  • Vicky was an invaluable support during the administration of my mother-in-law's estate. She is friendly and knowledgeable, and was able to provide the right level of expertise at different stages during the process.

  • Just wanted to thank you for your help and kindness over the last four months. You certainly made the very sad process of dealing with my darling mum's estate much easier for us all
