Amy joined Short Richardson & Forth in October 2013, having graduated from Northumbria University in July 2013.
She has been with Short Richardson & Forth since commencing her training contract as a trainee solicitor in 2013.
She now works within the Private Client and Residential Conveyancing teams at the firm.
Within the Private Client team, she deals mainly with the preparation of Wills, Trusts and Lasting Powers of Attorneys in relation to both financial & property affairs and personal welfare. She engages in NHS funding appeal work, including preparing requests for Independent Review Panel hearings. Amy-Louise also does a lot of investigation work around contentious probate matters and has experience in claims against estate under the Inheritance (Provisions for Family and Independents) Act 1954.
"In Private Client and Residential Conveyancing, I see how stressful and emotionally testing such matters can potentially be. It is my personal aim to lift this weight from each and every one of my clients by using my own ambitions to provide a friendly, supportive and proactive service which is tailored to the needs of each client. For me, being able to achieve this makes every working day worthwhile"
I am recently married and after spending two whole years planning the ins and outs of one day, I was, needless to say, struck with post-wedding blues! I need not have worried though, because as word has spread I have now gained a reputation as a rather handy party planner for friends and family. I love making contacts, organising activities and making everything come together for a top notch do, no matter how big or small.
When I’m not party planning, I love devoting my time to my lovely little Maisie (my dog). My Husband can also be good company and the three of us spend a lot of our spare time enjoying the outdoors and along the beautiful Northumberland coast.
