Meet Gemma Caro, Hillyer McKeown Legal Advisor
A Will is an extremely personal document. I am a firm believer that every Will should be tailored to meet the needs of an individual which is why I take every step possible to work with clients to plan their estates with care and undivided attention.
When done right, estate planning can help keep families together during difficult times. This core purpose is at the heart of everything I put my name to. The support and resources within the Wills and Probate team at Hillyer McKeown means all my clients can benefit from this level of personalised support.
I regularly see clients with hugely differing circumstances and I am able to help with any of the following services and more:
- Making a new Will or reviewing a current Will.
- Estate planning.
- Care home fee planning.
- Inheritance tax planning and advice.
- Lifetime planning for loved ones.
- Making and registering Lasting Powers of Attorney.
Please contact me if you have queries about any of the above options or are looking for legal help and advice about protecting your assets. I understand that peoples’ situations can be very different – and I’m here to work through your options.
Unconventionally, I am a graduate of Mathematics from the University of Leeds. It was here that I was able to study areas of the law alongside my degree including contracts, negligence and employment. This experience led me to the conclusion that the legal sector was right for me, in particular private client services where I am able to truly help people.

Outside of working
