Kathryn Hughes

Kathryn Hughes - Associate Solicitor
Associate Solicitor • Kendal

I grew up in Lancashire and studied law at Bristol University. After graduating I stayed in Bristol to complete my training at the large city firm, Osborne Clarke. I then specialised in matrimonial law practising in Somerset, before giving in to the desire to return to “the north” and settling in Kendal.

Once I had a family of my own I moved into specialising in wills, probate, Court of Protection and all aspects of work in relation to the elderly. I practised in several firms in the South Lakes area before joining Thompson Wilson Pattinson in 2002. I am a member of STEP (the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners).

In addition to having a busy family life I enjoy swimming, walking, yoga and reading.

“ The help and guidance I have received following the very sudden death of my husband has been outstanding, helping me to understand and explaining every element in detail. Also the understanding of the pain I have been going through. A huge thank you. ”

“ Kathryn Hughes does your firm great credit. Apart from being very efficient, she displays a kind and caring nature. ”

“ I have felt completely reassured that all dad's estate was dealt with in a very efficient and capable way. Any questions were always dealt with quickly with helpful and careful explanations. Kathryn's secretary was always prompt in replying and helpful in resolving any queries. Thank you - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you ”

“ All the staff in the office were kind and efficient in leading me through a particularly difficult time following the death of my husband. In particular, Kathryn Hughes and Duncan Fox (Financial Services) were professional, kind and nothing was too much trouble for them in explaining legal processes and financial options pertaining to my husband's estate. Thank you both. ”

“ Thank you for all your support and patience through all the process of granny's estate - from the preparation of her will to the resolution of all the details along the way. I would highly recommend you to any friends or family. Thank you. ”
