Penny Smith

Director & Senior Partner

“My passion is for excellent service and I am thrilled when a client thanks us – it helps us realise how much of a difference we can make.”

I qualified in 1980. My desire to help people and my technical strengths drew me to private client work and since 1992 I have dealt exclusively with Wills, administration of estates, Inheritance Tax, Powers of Attorney, Court of Protection, Trusts and related matters.

I was a senior solicitor with Blake Lapthorn until I joined Belcher Frost as a partner in 2002. I took over as senior partner in 2011 so now manage not only my private client team but also the practice.

My passion is for excellent service and I am thrilled when a client thanks us not only for the quality of our advice and work undertaken, but also for our efficiency or the kind and sympathetic way they were treated.

Other than my wonderful husband, the loves of my life are our three horses. I find giving them a groom or riding out in the fresh air and beautiful countryside is good for body and soul.

I am lucky to work in picturesque Emsworth, to have a dedicated, like-minded team, of which I am immensely proud, and very loyal clients, all of which are the reasons for me still doing what I do after over 40 years.
