New Zealand Institute of Legal Executives Certificate

Fellow NZILE

I’m a Fellow member of the New Zealand Institute of Legal Executives.

I joined Cooney Lees Morgan in March 2000  specialising in the area of estate planning and estate administration. This includes working with my clients to obtain a  grant of Probate or Letters of Administration and distributing the estate assets. I am also involved assisting in the on-going management of estate trusts and assisting clients with asset protection, wills and powers of attorney. 

I’m committed to helping grieving families through the difficult times they are facing in their lives when a loved one dies. I pride myself in being approachable and reliable and aim to assist my clients compassionately and with consideration.

I consider the family unit to be very important in today’s society. Outside of work, spending time with my husband and our family is very special to me. I love travelling and there are places on my bucket list that I want to visit in the future. When time permits I can be found pursuing my interest in genealogy.

Thanks to your perseverance while I was working on it with you and about giving up. My sisters and I thank you for your patience and always attentive attitude.

Many thanks Margaret and much gratitude for all the kindness you showed to mum and myself. You made a very confusing experience flow with ease and assurance and for that we are deeply grateful.

I thank you sincerely for the smooth administration of my sister’s Estate.
