Jenny Mayhew


Head of Wills, Probate and Trusts

Jenny qualified as a Solicitor in 1988 after a law degree at Southampton University and joined Dawson Hart in March 2004, becoming a partner in Dawson Hart in December 2010.

After spending several years engaged in civil litigation work, Jenny decided to specialise in private client matters. 

She now deals with a wide variety of issues especially the administration of estates (including those where there are assets abroad), drafting Wills and trusts. 

She puts her litigation experience to good use by dealing with matters relating to contentious probate and claims brought under the Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependants) Act 1975 for provision from an estate.

When not working, Jenny spends much of her time on her small holding, caring for her sheep, chickens, dogs and cats. She enjoys choral singing and has been a member of Heathfield Choral Society for many years.
