Sarah Clifton



Sarah is a Private Client solicitor, dividing her time evenly between wills, lasting powers of attorney and probate (the administration of estates) and some Trust work.  Sarah is highly experienced and has drafted approximately 600 wills and lasting powers of attorney, including many wills with life interest or discretionary trusts.  She has also dealt with the administration of approximately 300 probate matters including many that are inheritance taxable, have other complications or result in an ongoing trust which Sarah then administers.  She is based in our Bexhill office but frequently travels to meet with clients in our Hastings office.

Sarah prides herself on offering an efficient, friendly and sympathetic service to all clients.  


After obtaining an LLB (Hons) law degree from the University of Kent Sarah went on to complete the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in London.  She then undertook her training contract with an Eastbourne firm, qualifying as a solicitor in January 2009.  


Sarah grew up in Bexhill and now lives there with her young family. 

Sarah volunteers with the Bexhill Dementia Action Alliance and is on the Board of Trustees of Bexhill Old Town Preservation Society.  Any spare time that Sarah has is spent her family and friends, attending Pilates and swimming. 


"An excellent service with straightforward and amicable attention to all that I asked."  (J Norman) 

"Sarah was able to deal with us in a fair way with patience, kindness and knowledge and also her efficiency and prompt addressing of any issues, when as a family we had never had to deal with any of these legal issues before.  Without her help we would have been much more stressed; I can never thank her enough for all her help." (G Mulligan) 

"Thank you very much for all your hard work Sarah and all the others involved."  (J Bent) 

"A lot to take in but had a good solicitor."  (P Rea)

"Excellent client-friendly service delivered by Sarah.  Process made easier by her kind and caring manner."  (Mr T Gourlay)
