Wills & Probate
- Powers of Attorney
"I rarely write Reviews. Coles Miller Solicitors' in Poole is not the nearest Solicitors' Office to my home. However I must let all those who are considering writing or updating their Last Will and Testament know, how impressed I was with the charming, courteous, professional and knowledgeable Clare Bland. As an elderly disabled person, I was very apprehensive about understanding the process. Clare was amazing, so kind and patient, I had no need to worry. I can honestly highly recommend her. I am so pleased and relieved that I chose Coles Miller Solicitors."
Clare studied BA (Hons) Criminology and Law at Coventry University and achieved a 2:1. She then went onto study her Graduate Diploma in Law at Bournemouth University. Following this she studied the Legal Practice Course, again at Bournemouth University, over 2 years and achieved a Merit.
Whilst studying the Legal Practice Course, Clare worked at Sunseeker International for a year as a paralegal and Lester Aldridge for a year in the Compliance Team.
Clare spent two years at Coles Miller as a Trainee Solicitor. Clare spent the first seat of her training in the Residential Conveyancing Department, then moved to our Probate Department. From there, Clare moved to our Commercial Property department based in the Poole office. Clare is now a qualified Solicitor based within the Probate Department in the Bournemouth office.
In her spare time Clare likes to go running on the beach and cycling. She frequently visits Oxted in Surrey as she spent most of her childhood/adult life there before moving to Bournemouth four years ago. Clare has a twin brother who also works in the legal sector.
