Iestyn Milton-Jenkins MA (Oxon), LLB (Hons) 
is a Director of Thorne Segar Ltd and provides practical legal solutions in sensitive areas such as Wills, Mental Capacity and Elderly Care

Iestyn (Pronounced ‘Yestyn’) is hugely experienced in a wide variety of areas enabling him to take a patient and practical approach to complex issues. Iestyn also oversees the firm’s busy conveyancing department.

Work Undertaken


to reflect your unique personal wishes and family circumstances. Every week Iestyn hears clients’ aspirations and concerns, and has developed a deep appreciation for people’s individuality and their concern for their loved ones.

Mental Capacity: 

Concern over a loved one’s mental capacity can be very emotionally burdensome. Iestyn’s unique practical advice provides welcome clarity.

Powers of Attorney

for both Financial Affairs and Health & Welfare are made in advance, in case of loss of capacity. Should the unfortunate happen then your affairs can be taken care of by someone you have chosen for that role.

Court of Protection and Deputyship:

If a loved one has already lost capacity you could 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.

Care Home Contract Advice:

Quality of life in later years relies upon careful selection of your care arrangements. Iestyn has seen the whole spectrum of care home contracts and is uniquely placed to interpret and advise.

Personal Profile:

I left Wales at 18 to read Geography at Oxford (MA) but returned to Cardiff after completing my degree to read Law (LLB), subsequently taking up a post at a large Cardiff law firm where I completed my training as a Solicitor.

I have family connections to Minehead and moved here to join my wife who had a teaching post in the town. I joined what was then Thorne and Thorne well over 20 years ago and became a partner at just 29 years old.

I am, perhaps, amongst the last of a generation of lawyers for whom practise in many different areas of law was the norm. This varied experience allows me to identify and address issues which many would simply overlook.

Family life is very important to me. I have school age children and I was involved with school governance in the area for many years. I was Vice Chair of Governors at a local school, then latterly became a trustee of the local West Somerset Multi Academy Trust. I have enjoyed participating in and serving the local community in this way.

These experiences have given me a new perspective on problem solving, and new skills to do so. My approach to my work is always to be patient, friendly and professional; and to provide practical solutions to sensitive and complex issues.

I am an enthusiastic trail runner in my spare time, and much of my thinking is therefore done on long runs over Exmoor. I often run at night with my dog, taking the opportunity to listen to lengthy operas whilst I do so! I also read extensively on subjects as varied as quantum physics, cosmology and mediaeval history.

My Dementia ‘experience’

Liam Wolley dealt with the sale of my mother’s property, following her move into a retirement home, efficiently with great care and sensitivity. Would happily recommend Thorne Segar’s conveyancing service to others.

My wife and I received a truly first class service in engaging Thorne Segar, in the persons of Iestyn Milton-Jenkins and Tina, to set up Power of Attorney for us. We really felt that they had our best interest at heart and valued us. Now that all has been arranged we have every confidence in their sincerity and professionalism, and are meeting them soon to arrange the updating of our will.

Our first dealings with Thorne Segar were after a close family friend had nominated us as his POA and executor for his estate shortly after his wife had passed away. In the following twelve months we had to make just about every decision a POA and executor dreads having to make. Throughout this process Thorne Segar were excellent, we cannot sing their praises enough, from our first dealings with Lestyn drawing up the POA who explained this process thoroughly and in plain English (with a slight Welsh accent) to his PA Tina who was always available to help and form a good line of communication with Lestyn. After the sad but inevitable ending to a long and happy life, Thorne Segar were there again to help guide and advise. Rebecca then took the reins to deal with the probate and Paul dealt with the conveyancing aspects of the house sale. This process for various reasons was not straight forward, but all the complications were dealt with without fuss or undue delay for which we are most grateful. I hope the best compliment we can make of Thorne Segar is that although we are not local, we intend to ask Thorne Segar to put our family POA's in place.

The service provided by Thorne Segar in connection with the sale of a property has been excellent. The communication has been very good and clear which made the whole process so much easier. I would certainly recommend Thorne Segar’s services to others.

Listened carefully to what we wished to achieve with our final wishes. Explained any points we didn't understand/grasp, in some cases explaining several times until we fully understood the legal terms and their implications. Very happy with the outcome and the professional and friendly way we were dealt with. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending Thorne Segar to anyone needing the services they provide.
