Laraine Smailes

Laraine has been a legal secretary since leaving School at the age of 16 (apart from a 6 year gap when she became a Care Assistant for both the elderly and also animals).   She moved to Cornwall from Kent in 1994 after also working and living in London and wanted a quieter lifestyle but periodically visits family and friends and inevitably they visit Cornwall.

Laraine joined the firm in September 2016 and is Assistant to Alan Gates who is Head of the Private Client Department.

Laraine has no children but is a great lover of animals and at present has one dog named Glitzi and a zebra finch named Bugsy which keep her busy.

She enjoys lots of long walks around the Cornwall countryside, Zumba and also circuit training once a week and reading amongst other things.
