Joel Weitzman

Manager and Director of The Probate Practice 

Joel has been with NLP for over 20 years and wears two hats. He is a tax Manager and formerly looked after the day to day running of the tax department. Whilst he has retained his portfolio of tax clients, he also now heads our probate division, The Probate Practice. Joel was amongst the first to be granted a license to practice probate by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales when they were given regulatory authority.

He enjoys guiding clients through what can be a tangled web of legislation and administration. His tax experience and pragmatic approach has also seen him be approached by several clients, where we had not previously acted, to help them with HMRC enquiries into Inheritance Tax Returns and other Estate related matters. 

Out of the office Joel enjoys travel, although the arrival of a baby son in 2018 has meant that family holidays have now replaced seeing the world! He also enjoys most sport and is a keen Tottenham Hotspur supporter.
