Iestyn Milton-Jenkins
MA (Oxon), LLB (Hons)

Director of Thorne Segar Ltd.

 

Iestyn is an expert in Wills, Lasting Power of Attorney & Court of Protection matters. Specialist in Law for the elderly.

Iestyn (pronounced ‘Yes-Tin’) is hugely experienced and takes a patient and practical approach to complex issues in sensitive areas including Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs), mental capacity and elderly care.

Leaving Wales to study Geography at Oxford University, Iestyn returned after his degree to take a further degree in Law, before training as a solicitork at a large Cardiff law firm. Family connections brought him to Minehead and Thorne & Thorne where he became a partner aged just 29.

Iestyn is a specialist in Wills and inheritance tax planning. Reflecting on this area of his work he says “Wills are like chess- you have to think about what impact clauses may have and the knock-on effects”.

Iestyn enjoys meeting people, and relishes taking an issue which might be worrying someone, talking it through, and finding a solution. Iestyn says another perk of the job is meeting clients’ dogs when he makes home visits across the local area.

When not working Iestyn enjoys running – a lot! He’s often seen running off-road over the hills of Exmoor. Iestyn is also a classical music buff and attends concerts locally and nationally whenever possible.

How Iestyn can help you and your family:

Wills

Every week Iestyn hears clients’ hopes and concerns, and has developed a deep appreciation for people’s individuality and their consideration for their loved ones. He is adept at dealing with complexity – listening to clients and establishing exactly what they want to achieve and helping them make decisions.

Iestyn can visit you at home, free of charge in the West Somerset and Exmoor area, so you can make your Will in the comfort and privacy of your own surroundings.

 

Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs)

Iestyn is an LPA expert. He can provide LPAs for both Financial Affairs and Health & Welfare. LPAs are made in advance, in case accident, illness or loss of capacity affect your ability to look after your affairs. Should the unfortunate happen matters can be taken care of by someone you have chosen for that role.

Iestyn has written a popular and useful guide “LPAs: Lasting Power of Attorney – Everything you need to know in 30 minutes…”. You can download a copy of the guide here or we can send you a printed copy free of charge by First Class post. Just phone 01643 703234 or email enquiries@thornesegar.co.uk.

 

Court of Protection and Deputyship

If a loved one has already lost capacity you can still help to look after their affairs with a Deputyship Order from the Court of Protection. Iestyn has experience in a wide range of Court of Protection work. Applications to the Court can take a long time – if you have concerns, do not delay contacting Iestyn.

Liam Wolley dealt with the sale of my stepmother’s property in 2021/2022 efficiently and with great care and sensitivity. In 2023, Rebecca Padgett dealt with obtaining probate for my stepmother's will. Again, this was dealt with efficiently and with sensitivity. I would very happily recommend Thorne Segar.

We had a difficult Intestacy when my Father died and his will was not valid. Rebecca dealt compassionately, patiently and professionally with what could have been a very acrimonious affair. From our first meeting with Rebecca we had total confidence that she could and would deal with this situation. At every step of the way she kept us fully updated and all parties were kept aware of all of the possibilities that may or may not occur. We had total faith in her throughout. Her advice was invaluable and at no time did she give us cause to doubt her. A situation that shocked us was made so much easier by Rebecca's total Professionalism. When we were finally able to sell my Father's flat there was absolutely no doubt in our mind that Thorne Segar could deal with this too - and they did in the same first class manner. Its a great pity that we can't give Thorne Segar more than five stars.

Our recent property sale was dealt with very efficiently by Liam. Nothing phased him and we felt reassured by his calm approach to every issue posed by the purchaser’s solicitor. We have had several matters handled by Liam and the rest of the team at Thorne Segar and our experiences have all been positive. In all legal matters they are our ‘go to’ provider.

Earlier this year we consulted Thorne Seagar in Minehead about preparing Wills for myself and my wife. We had an interview with Iestyn who we found very helpful and knowledgeble about Wills. We were very impressed with how they advised us on what can be a very tricky subject to deal with. We now have our Wills and peace of mind it is all sorted. We would certainly recommend and use this Solicitor again.

House Sale: I was apprehensive about using a solicitor for the first time, but found everyone I met or spoke to at Thorne Segar was approachable and helpful, ready to translate anything technical or tricky into terms I could understand, and help me appreciate the implication of anything I was asked about or asked to do. A good experience, thank you Liam and the team.
