Clare Presley Bio

Clare Presley

Solicitor – Wills & Probate
Branch(s) York Office
Direct Dial 01904 716045

I have always found work in the Wills and Probate team very rewarding. I really enjoy being able to give people practical and considerate assistance to guide them through what needs to be done when they have lost a loved one, need to help somebody with their finances or plan for their future.


Clare joined Ware & Kay in 2005 and qualified into the Wills and Probate team in January 2008, having spent the vast majority of her training doing this type of work.  Her areas of expertise include Probate and Estate administration, Wills, Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection matters.

When she isn't working Clare spends time with her young family, and enjoys trying to keep fit and fell walking.

What clients say:

"Have found your service 100% over all the years. Can't think of anything to improve it. Since we lost our son felt 100% in our trust, since my husband died I am alone and that trust is so needed and the compassion shown to me was 100% plus. Coming up to 85 and I panic regarding items that confuse. My mind settles I telephone and come to you."

"I find using your services very good and accommodating in every way."

"My wife and I want to thank you for the way you have handled this process [complete new Wills for us and establish LPAs], we have felt much assured by you through it. [...] Again - thank you so."
