Associate, Probate Manager

Rachael is our Probate Manager, leading the probate team whilst also acting in administering individuals’ estates on behalf of private executors or when Wright Hassall members are executors, or on behalf of administrators for intestate estates.

"I would like to say a big thank you to both Rachael Kell and Julie Bell for their excellent service on two different matters."

Rachael has acted in three separate administrations for one family over a period of 8 years, as the family were confident in the level of service and attention provided.

Rachael has experience in proving handwritten Wills or those which may have been damaged, lost or altered and the additional requirements this involves in putting a case forward to the Probate court to ensure the testators wishes are upheld.
