Kim Neal is a solicitor in our private client department, based in the March office. Kim deals with all aspects of private client work including LPAs, Probates and Wills. Kim helps a wide range of clients, from younger clients making a Will on buying a house or becoming a parent to elderly clients making an LPA to protect themselves in case they later become unable to manage their own affairs.
Kim really enjoys helping and supporting people through what can be very difficult times in their lives, her clients can expect a solicitor with a sensitive, caring approach who considers other practice areas that may overlap with private client. Kim recognises that each matter is different and she pays particular attention to the specific needs of her client.
Kim studied law at Northampton University, where she graduated with a 2:1 and won the 2008/9 Sweet & Maxwell prize for the best dissertation by a law student in year 3. Kim then studied the Legal Practice Course (LPC) at the College of Law at Moorgate, London.
After gaining her LPC, Kim worked as a paralegal in the family law department of a Peterborough firm, before moving to a local firm to train as a solicitor. During her training, Kim studied seats in conveyancing, litigation and private client. After qualifying in April 2017, Kim worked as a private client solicitor at another local firm before coming to Fraser Dawbarns in December 2020.
Kim is an affiliate member of the Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners (STEP), a global professional body, comprising lawyers, accountants, and other practitioners that help families plan for their futures. Kim has a STEP Advanced Certificate in Administration of Estates.

I have recently updated my Will under very difficult circumstances with everyone on lockdown, the process was completed very quickly and efficiently. Kieren Cross who was very kind, friendly, helpful and efficient and made me feel totally at ease dealt quickly with my Will. Any queries I had were answered quickly by friendly office staff. I was very happy with the whole experience.Client - March Office
