Annamaria graduated from the De Montfort University in Leicester before qualifying as a Solicitor in 1997. She has practiced law locally in Nuneaton and Bedworth since 1985 and has worked as a solicitor locally since qualifying.
At the beginning of her career, Annamaria dealt with all aspects of family law. In recent years, Annamaria has turned her skills to private client work. Her skills from her days as a family lawyer have stood her in good stead for this, as often preparing Wills needs an understanding of family dynamics.
Annamaria is very excited about the merger, and to be a part of a dynamic busy practice headed by the senior partner Bob Willson. She is working closely with Bob in the Private Client department, preparing Wills, and dealing with Probate for clients as well as Lasting Powers Of Attorneys, which are needed by most of our clients.
Annamaria considers her strengths to be her client relationships. She has an excellent rapport with her clients and will strive to ensure that they are provided a good service that meets their needs and expectations. Annamaria offers both understanding and compassion in what can often be very difficult circumstances. The priority for her is to ensure that clients are made to feel comfortable and at ease,knowing they are in capable hands.
Away from work, Annamaria loves nothing better than taking her spaniel Basil for long walks and spending time with her friends and family. Summer months keep her busy gardening, which she finds relaxing, and she also has a 9 hive apiary which keeps her busy. Any excuse to watch local team Leicester Tigers or any national rugby match is a bonus.

Pete started working for a local firm of solicitors in 1978, studying in his spare time to qualify as a Legal Executive before attending the college of Law in Chester to qualify as a solicitor.
Pete is the Head of the Conveyancing department and enjoys dealing with all aspects of residential conveyancing. He enjoys dealing with clients and, wherever possible, will try to reduce the pressure on clients during what can be a very stressful process. Pete will always try to cut through the conveyancing jargon to make sure that information is provided in a format that can be understood.
Pete has a team of people that he trusts to do everything they can to look after clients and if required to go the extra mile to make the conveyancing experience as seamless as possible. There are regular training sessions within the department to ensure that service levels are maintained and the client experience is made as user-friendly as possible.
Whilst Pete and his team always try to achieve their clients' desired timescale for completion, there are times when this simply cannot be achieved due to factors beyond the control of clients or the firm. We will always take time to provide information to our clients to explain any delay.
In his spare time, Pete enjoys spending time with his family, listening to music and going to see bands at music venues and pubs all over the country.
