Find out more about Andy Hitchon, Wills, Trusts and Probate Solicitor based at our Market Harborough office.
Q: How long have you been working in Private Client Law?
A: Having initially qualified into Construction law in 2009, I made the change to Private Client law in 2013 and haven’t looked back since.
Q: What made you want to get into Private Client Law?
A: Whilst I enjoyed Construction law, I felt as though my skill set would be much better suited to Wills, Trusts and Probate work. I like to think I was right!
Q: What is the most challenging type of case you have handled?
A: The most challenging cases aren’t necessarily always the most complex. There may be issues deep-rooted in a family relationship, which result in family members not seeing eye to eye with each other. It’s important to deal with cases like this with tact and sensitivity, whilst at the same time taking into account all the practical and legal ways of getting the job done.
Q: What types of cases do you have most experience in?
A: A broad spectrum of Wills, Probate and Administration of Estates, Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection matters.
Q: Why do you think so many people come to Bray & Bray to sort these types of issues out?
A: Bray & Bray is a well-known firm with a great reputation. We pride ourselves on being experts in our field and reflecting this in the work we do for our clients.
Q: Which sort of cases do you find that you can relate to most?
A: I have two young sons; so clients who come in to arrange their affairs to ensure their own children are taken care of (such as through guardianship in a Will) are often matters I relate to the most.
Q: What do you do to unwind after a busy day?
A: I usually spend the first hour when I get home playing with my sons which helps put a busy or particularly stressful day into perspective. Once they are in bed, I often find a nice glass of red helps.
Q: What is the key to your success?
A: Hard work, being personable and having a good sense of humour.
Q: If you weren’t a solicitor, what do you think you would be good at?
A: I like interacting with people and would enjoy teaching.
