Dawn Cash, Associate Director
Probate & Estate Administration | Wills & Powers of Attorney | Deputyship
I am a Solicitor, Associate Director and Head of the Private Client Team here at Waldrons. I have worked for the Company since 2004 when I started as a Legal Executive in the Personal Injury team in our Lye office. Since then I have worked in our offices in Kingswinford, Merry Hill, Walsall and Worcester.
Career Pathway and Professional Development
I started my career in law as a secretary in a small firm of solicitors based in Worcester. Although I enjoyed my introduction working for someone else, I soon wanted more and I began training as a Legal Executive by attending a local college once a week while continuing to work in the litigation department. I qualified as a Legal Executive in November 1997.
After moving to Waldrons in 2004, they encouraged me to continue with my studies and after attending Wolverhampton University part time, I qualified as a Solicitor in November 2009 in our Personal Injury Department.
I changed specialisms at Waldrons and in September 2013, I started in our Private Client team and have never looked back. I enjoy helping to take the mystery and worry out of making a Will and looking for solutions for my Clients rather than explaining what they cannot do. I also help families to deal with the administration of the estates for their loved ones and I help people to make applications through the Court of Protection where a close family member is unable to make decisions for themselves. I work alongside other departments in the firm, such as the family, commercial and conveyancing departments and with other professionals such as financial advisers and accountants.
Essentially, I enjoy helping our clients to get their ducks in a row by planning for their futures and if they are unable to get into the office to do that, then home visits are always available to them.
I am a member of the Law Society Private Client Section.
Outside of Work
Outside of work I enjoy long walks my dog with friends and family, socialising and watching both Wolverhampton Wanderers and Worcester Warriors (but not at the same time!). I have done a parachute jump for charity but broke my ankle not paying attention on landing! I would love to live by the sea but for now, by the River Severn is good enough for me.
