Notary Public in Newcastle Upon Tyne and North East England




I am a Notary Public based in Newcastle. I offer a full notarial service to companies and individuals in Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear, Northumberland, Sunderland, County Durham and the North East of England. My service includes assisting with legalisation. I welcome queries and do my best to see clients at short notice. Whenever possible, I agree a fee and any legalisation costs with my clients in advance.

A Notary is a qualified lawyer and public officer whose main role is the authentication and certification of signatures and documents for use overseas.

Many notarised documents also require legalisation by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (called an apostille) and/or by a United Kingdom consulate of another country. I regularly assist clients with legalisation and onwards dispatch of documents overseas, often as a matter of urgency.

Most notarial work involves a short face-to-face meeting. I am currently meeting most clients at my home in Gosforth. When asked to do so, I try to assist clients by meeting them at their place of work, at their home, in hospital, in board meetings and sometimes onboard ships. Please read the information on making an appointment on the “Notarial Services” page.

I look forward to being of assistance.
