Roche Legal adds to new solicitor to expanding team

Experienced solicitor Clare Presley has joined York-based Roche Legal.

Presley is a private client solicitor with 12 years of experience. She is also a fully accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE), an independent, national organisation of lawyers who provide specialist legal advice for older and vulnerable clients, their families and carers.

Roche Legal was set up by Rachel Roche in 2014 and specialises in wills, powers of attorney, Court of Protection, probate and elderly client law.

The firm has focused on using technology to enhance the legal services that it delivers. Following her arrival, Presley said: “Client care is central to everything we do at Roche Legal where we are a paperless office and committed to ensuring the process is as streamlined as possible. Six months ago many clients may not have heard of Zoom or used WhatsApp and it is clear that technology is and will continue to play, an increasing role and Roche Legal is at the forefront of embracing new ideas.”

“Because Rachel has been ahead of the curve in the way new technology has been integrated in how we work, we are able to offer clients a range of meeting options and it is about being flexible. People are very proud of being from York and value a local connection.”

There are further plans to expand the Roche Legal team, as Rachel Roche explained: “With everything that has happened in the world this year, like many businesses, we have made changes to adapt to what has been an uncertain time. As part of our forward planning, we are looking to add a paralegal/legal assistant ‘right-hand person’ to join our team of bright, energetic, organised, and flexible individuals, who are willing to work together to take the firm to the next level.”
