Cheryl Styles

  • Wills & Probate

Qualifications and Study Experience

Cheryl originally studied art at the University of Central England which is now known as Birmingham City University. However, Cheryl decided shortly after being appointed as a Caseworker within a Court of Protection Department that she wished to pursue a career in law which resulted in her achieving her qualifications and member status with the Chartered Institute for Legal Executives (CILEX).

Work Experience

Cheryl began her legal career at Anthony Collins Solicitors in 2010, starting as a Caseworker in the Personal, Planning and Management Department, specialising in Court of Protection matters. It was at Anthony Collins Solicitors that Cheryl decided to formally qualify through CILEX.

After 6 years at Anthony Collins Solicitors, Cheryl moved onto pastures new, taking a new role as Court of Protection Manager at MFG Solicitors in Kidderminster, dealing with applications to the Court of Protection in respect of Deputyships for Property and Affairs, Statutory Wills and other applications as necessary and the ongoing day to day management of Deputyships, Attorneyships and Trusts on behalf of the professional Deputy, Attorney and Trustees appointed. Likewise, Cheryl also dealt with Administration of Estates and Probate matters in respect of our late Deputyship and Attorneyship clients.

Following her time at MFG Solicitors, Cheryl was appointed as Legal Executive at SME Solicitors in Worcester in order to embark on a role encompassing more Probate and Administration of Estate matters.

Cheryl joined Waldrons Solicitors in January 2024 as a Legal Executive within the Private Client Department covering Wills, Statutory Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, registering Enduring Powers of Attorney, Court of Protection Deputyship applications and Probate matters.
