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’

My Dementia ‘experience’

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.
