Profile

I first came to Kent to read Law at the University of Kent. I graduated with First Class Honours in 2014 and then completed the Legal Practice Course in Leicester, passing with a Distinction and receiving an award for outstanding results.

 

I was lucky enough to return to Kent in 2015 to join Whitehead Monckton as a trainee solicitor. Upon successful completion of my training contract in 2017, I qualified into the Tax and Estate Planning department. I am based in the Maidstone office and specialise in Wills, Estate Administration, Deputyships and Lasting Powers of Attorney with a particular interest in working with vulnerable clients, elderly clients and those living with dementia.

 

I became Chair of the ‘Building a Dementia Friendly Maidstone’ community group in September 2019 and volunteer for the Alzheimer's Society as a Dementia Friends Champion, regularly conducting information sessions for colleagues and the local community. I am the firm's dedicated dementia lead, responsible for taking forward Whitehead Monckton's 'Dementia Friendly Kent' commitments.

 

I am an associate member of Solicitors for the Elderly and of Society of Tax and Estate Practitioners (‘STEP’) working towards full accreditation through my completing the specialist STEP Diploma in Advising Vulnerable Clients. I am also part of the firm’s Corporate Social Responsibility team and a mentor for students at Kent Law School.

 

I was named Junior Lawyer of the Year at the Kent Junior Lawyer Division Annual Achievement Awards in November 2018. The judges praised me for my positive contribution to the firm, local community and the legal profession through both paid and unpaid work and in particular, my elderly client and dementia efforts.

 

What my clients say:

"I feel that I could not fault the way everything was handled.  I feel that Bekka Fuszard handled everything very well and was made to feel comfortable all through.  Thank you".

 

"Bekka & Amy were both very helpful in explaining to us things we didn't understand. Both very patient with us either in person or on the telephone. Nothing was too much trouble. Also found other staff that I had telephone contact with were very helpful"

 

“Thank you to Bekka Fuszard and Amy Turner-Ives for making the process of writing my Will and LPAs so easy and straightforward. Everything was clearly explained throughout the process and the paperwork was straightforward. I have already recommended this service to several friends.”

 

“All the meetings were on time.  We were never kept waiting.  Our solicitor [Bekka] was always most helpful clearly explaining very patiently points we did not understand.  She was friendly and had a good sense of humour.  From the moment we arrived at the car park barrier we were very well looked after.  Thank you.”

 

“Truly appreciate the kindness and patience you have shown us and that it has gone as smoothly as it has.”

 

"We would like to thank you again for your help with the administration of the estate, we are very happy with the service you provided by you and your colleagues at Whitehead Monckton"

 

“Some of the legal terms were so confusing but Bekka explained the words very clearly.”

 

“Bekka was first class”

 

“Polite and helpful service, we were impressed by the way we were received.”

 

“We have nothing but praise for Whitehead Monckton at Maidstone; from being greeted at reception through to the end of each appointment each time we were made to feel valued and heard”

 

When out of the office:

I enjoy baking, long walks with my dog and spending quality time with family and friends.
