Aileen, who qualified as a solicitor in 2011, joined the TSP Wills and Estates team in July 2015. She advises clients on a broad range of private client matters and is based in our Colchester office. Aileen was appointed as an associate solicitor in October 2017.
Aileen started her career as a city foreign exchange dealer but following a break to raise her children decided that a career in the Law was for her. She completed her Law Degree at the University of Essex before passing her Legal Practice Course with distinction at Anglia Ruskin University. Since her qualification in January 2011 Aileen has worked on a broad range of private client matters and advises TSP’s clients on their wills, lasting powers of attorney, trusts and estate administration. In particular, as a qualified member of Society of Trust and Estate Practitioner’s (STEP) , she advises the firm’s clients on trusts and estate planning. STEP members help families to plan for their long term financial future, providing expert advice on how to comply with the often complex law and tax rules surrounding trusts, estates and inheritance. Aileen is also a full accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE).
Thompson Smith and Puxon has, for a number of years, been highlighted by the Legal 500 as a Leading Firm in this practice area and Aileen is a Legal 500 Recommended Lawyer.
In 2017 The Legal 500 said “Clients describe Thompson Smith and Puxon’s private client department as ‘approachable, efficient, knowledgeable and empathetic’, ‘working well as a strong team’ and having ‘impressive dedication to the client’. Also recommended is the ‘professional, organised and sympathetic’ solicitor Aileen Hirst.
Aileen is married with two sons and in her spare time she enjoys cycling, walking and skiing, as well as holidays to France. Aileen says “I really enjoy this area of law. It is very rewarding to get to know my clients and to advise them so they can plan for their future, or to support families during difficult times.”
