About Gay Cherryson - Partner at Everys Solicitors

Gay has acted in a large number of complex Will and Estate Disputes over the last two decades, representing family members, beneficiaries, and professional trustees, often in the High Court. She has wide-ranging knowledge and experience in this area and focusses on finding a solution to even the most seemingly intractable disputes, where often emotions are running high. She also deals with lifetime disputes regarding capacity, undue influence, and fraud, and the exercise of powers by Trustees and Attorneys.

Her other specialist area is high-value Personal Injury Claims, sometimes involving life-changing injuries such as loss of sight, limbs, or permanent back damage. She deals with these with empathy and understanding whilst aiming to procure help with rehabilitation, and access to private medical tests and treatment, together with maximum damages for the client

Gay graduated from Oxford University in 1989, qualifying as a solicitor in 1995, and worked for a well-respected regional firm immediately before joining Everys in 2002.

She has now been a Partner at the firm for many years, and is based at both our Exeter and Tiverton offices although her clients come from all over the South-West, and sometimes further afield.


"From the outset we were given very sound advice from Gay. The communication between us and Everys was second to none. Thank you once again for your professionalism and care with our matter. "
