Geoffrey was admitted as an attorney in Natal, South Africa in 1973. He practised as a Director of a prominent law firm in Durban until July 1990. That year he and his family emigrated to England where he held the position of Operations Director in a large manufacturing organisation for two years. Following his foray into the commercial world, he joined a public company as its in-house counsel, a position he held until joining Roiter Zucker in 1994; he left to join Jaffe Porter Crossick LLP at the end of 2007 and was admitted as solicitor in England and Wales in 1998.  

Summary of Work  

Since joining Jaffe Porter Crossick Geoffrey continues to specialise in estate planning, wills, trusts and non-contentious probate. His commercial background has been invaluable and he has a broad understanding of those areas of law which concern clients as they plan their own future.  

Skills and Approach  

Planning a will, contemplating death, and administering estates are important matters, and can be stressful and emotional experiences. Geoffrey’s thorough, clear and methodical approach helps to relieve the pressures of such.  

In preparing wills Geoffrey helps his clients to clarify their ideas, making them aware of issues and possibilities which may not have occurred to them. The expertise he employs in structuring wills involves not only knowledge of the law of wills, but of the law of property, trusts, tax and other subjects. In administering an estate Geoffrey puts his clients at ease understanding what is involved and getting things done in an organised, reassuring and purposeful manner.  

Geoffrey is also the designated JPC Law Compliance Officer for Legal Practice.
