Alexandra Truesdale has always aimed high. The first in her family to attend university, she read Jurisprudence at St Anne’s College, Oxford, qualifying as a solicitor and Solicitor Advocate and spending 15 years at the world’s best litigation firm, Herbert Smith. Leaving the City behind in June 2009 to raise a family (she is the very proud mother of two girls – a sixteen year old cellist and a twelve year old saxophonist!) Alex quickly realised that the best work:life balance would come through starting her own business.
By late 2009 Alex had joined the Institute of Professional Willwriters, the specialist Will writing association whose values best matched hers and whose entry requirements were the most stringent. Alex qualified as a Member of the IPW in June 2010 and her “middle child”, Alex Truesdale Wills Limited, was born.
Continuous professional development is at the cornerstone of Alex’s values and in December 2016 she gained the STEP Advanced Certificate in Will Preparation, considered the industry’s highest qualification, passing with Distinction and coming second in the country.
Alex prides herself on delivering personal, practical and pragmatic legal advice to individuals, couples and families across England and Wales, making the process of making a Will, creating Lasting Powers of Attorney, or navigating Probate as painless as possible.
Along the way Alex keeps her legal knowledge current through CPD training courses and events together with lecturing in law at BPP, and when she has any down time she is most likely to be found at the races…at a Jockey Club racecourse, naturally!
