Expert profile of Rachael Gooding

Get to know Rachael

I studied History at Cambridge University then spent a decade with the Ministry of Defence before deciding to switch to law. I achieved distinctions in my law degree and solicitors’ Legal Practice Certificate, in which I specialised in wills, probate, and trusts.

I joined Slater and Gordon in 2015, as a trainee solicitor, and am now proud to lead the wills and probate team as part of Slater and Gordon’s wider private client department, as an associate solicitor. I specialise in the administration of estates and trusts, and advise on estate planning, preparing wills and creating Lasting Powers of Attorney.

I’m known for being able to explain legal terms and concepts clearly and simply, particularly in wills, trusts and tax. I translate legal terms into easy to understand, accessible language and help my clients decide how they want to proceed. I’m efficient and practical when taking cases forwards whether that’s drafting a new will or dealing with a complex estate. Ultimately I really enjoy giving people the peace of mind and reassurance of knowing everything is in place.


I’m a fully qualified member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP), following a rigorous two-year qualification process which I passed with a high Distinction. I was awarded STEP’s Worldwide Excellence Award for my work in the Trust and Estate Accounting module and was formally recognised by STEP for my results in the Tax Examination.
