Lee is a member of the nationwide group ‘Solicitors for the Elderly’ which specialises in all areas of law affecting the elderly client.

Whilst still undertaking some more traditional wills and probate work, particularly in high value and / or complex matters, Lee now undertakes a significant amount of dispute work relating to elderly or deceased individuals including:-

  • disputes with both the NHS and various local authorities over the funding of residential and nursing care.
  • contested probate matters;
  • claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975; and
  • family disputes over the finances and/or care of elderly relatives; and
  • disputes within the Court of Protection.

Once a fit and active sportsman, but with age and his devotion to his family having reduced his sporting efforts to weekly 5-a-side football, he has now taken up running in an attempt to arrest the increase in his waistline. He has been a trustee of Basildon Borough’s Citizens Advice and separately of a charity responsible for the provision of sporting and fitness facilities in the Grays/Thurrock area.
