Wills and trusts expert Katy Burgin has joined Atherton Godfrey Solicitors in Doncaster.

Burgin previously worked for a company in Sheffield that provided trust, estate and financial advice.

Atherton Godfrey senior partner Don Bird commented on the appointment: “We are very pleased to welcome Katy to the team.”

“Katy brings with her a wealth of specialist experience that will complement and enhance the service that we provide in this highly complex area of law.”
