Bekka Fuszard

Job Title:

Senior Solicitor


  • Wills & Succession Planning


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.  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 now a senior solicitor and based in the Maidstone office.  I 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 am a full member of the Society of Tax and Estate Practitioners (‘STEP’), having passed the specialist STEP Diploma in Advising Vulnerable Clients with distinction in early 2020. I am also a full member of Solicitors for the Elderly.

I volunteer for the Alzheimer’s Society as a Dementia Friends Ambassador, regularly conducting information sessions for colleagues and the local community in the UK’s biggest initiative to change the way people think, act and talk about dementia. I am a former Chair of the ‘Building a Dementia Friendly Maidstone’ community group and still get involved with local dementia friendly events and initiatives.  I obtained ‘Working to Become Dementia Friendly Kent’ recognition for the firm in 2018 and have helped to maintain that recognition since.

In 2018 I was awarded Kent Junior Lawyer of the Year. 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.
