Joshua is based at our Whitstable office, having successfully qualified as a solicitor with Furley Page in 2010.  He was promoted to Senior Associate in 2018 and is the contact for Private Client matters in Whitstable and the surrounding Coastal Towns.

Joshua also acts for clients from further afield and abroad, and he regularly advises clients who relocate to the area.  His work covers a broad range of issues including Wills, Probate and Estate Administration, Lasting Powers of Attorney and advice in regard to tax issues and Wealth Preservation planning.  He can also assist with Change of Name Deeds, Declarations of Trust and much more.

His client base is varied, from high-net worth individuals, to those on more modest means.   He has extensive experience in helping elderly clients, who may find legal matters daunting, and is able to offer easy access to legal services to those who have not dealt with solicitors before.  Joshua also advises National Lottery winners, with the firm having been on the specialist Camelot Legal Advisers panel for a number of years.

Joshua offers a friendly, but knowledgeable service.  He aims to help his clients understand their legal issues and then advise them on the merits of the options.  He is very happy to deal with any query you have for the firm and likes to be a point of contact and support for all his clients.

Outside of the office, Joshua is a Trustee of the Whitstable Castle, a governor at a local infant school and regular attendee at the Whitstable Business Club.  Joshua is an established adviser for the Kent Law Clinic, an award winning pro bono service set up by the University of Kent.  In 2017, Joshua accepted a role on their management committee.  Joshua also hosts the Whitstable 7Thirty networking event, which is held every quarter by invite only.

Joshua is also happy to give talks or presentations on a range of issues.  This may be suited to the newly retired individual or other professionals wanting to understand the area of Private Client work a bit better.

Before joining Furley Page, Joshua studied at the University of the West of the England, completing his Law Degree with honours in 2005.  He went on to work in London with HM Revenue and Customs in both their Prosecutions and Civil Proceedings offices for a number of years, whilst completing further legal studies in his spare time.

Joshua is a qualified Trust and Estates Practitioner.
