Lorna Pratt – York

I am a Chartered Legal Executive with over 15 years’ experience in all aspects of family law. My specialisms are divorce and separation, children issues, financial matters within divorce and upon separation, cohabitation agreements and pre/post nuptial agreements.

I am committed to adopting a constructive non-confrontational approach to family law.  I strive to support my clients through what is a very difficult and stressful time in their lives by providing practical straight forward advice in a cost-effective manner.

Having worked for many years in traditional high street law firms I am delighted to have joined Rucklidge Law Limited and work alongside such dedicated and professional lawyers, all of whom share my ethos of placing our clients at the heart of everything we do.  Working as a Consultant means I can now dedicate my time and effort in supporting my clients and providing them with the best possible service rather than my work being driven by commercial targets.

Away from the office I love spending time with my family, supporting our local football team, York City FC and travel. I have been lucky enough to visit many beautiful places in the world but I am still awestruck by the Yorkshire Dales.

Claire Trueman – York

I have over 14 years of working in wills and probate. I was director and head of department for wills and probate at a law firm in York for seven years.

My speciality is helping our Clients with Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Probate matters. This include taking instructions for someone’s wishes for their Will and helping people who have recently suffered a bereavement.

I help Clients with the preparation and registration of Lasting Powers of Attorney, registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney and Applications to be appointed as a Deputy by the Court of Protection.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my young family, and I’m a keen golfer.

What our clients say about Lorna

Thank you for all your help during what was a difficult period in my life. I have been extremely impressed with the consistently excellent service I have received from Lorna. You have given me clear, prompt and jargon free guidance and always provided documents in a timely and well-presented way. You have certainly made things much easier for me. I also feel that your fees have been very fair and reasonable. I would have no hesitation in using you in future nor recommending you to family and friends.

What our clients say about Claire

Claire immediately came across as very friendly, and also very responsive to our query. Wills are not necessarily something you want to think about, but are obviously necessary and we found her to be very approachable and tactful when dealing with a somewhat difficult subject.  She put us at ease and made it a very easy process overall, guiding us with her knowledge and experience and answering any questions we may have had.  She was also great at keeping us up to date with progress and completed everything very promptly, which for us was great as it meant yet another thing ticked off our somewhat never-ending life admin list! We were very satisfied with the level of service provided, and would have no doubt in thoroughly recommending her to others (and in fact already have done!).

Thank you Claire.
