Hannah Stanford joined the firm in August 2013 and qualified as a Solicitor with the firm at the end of 2018. Hannah joined the Dispute Resolution team in January 2018 and is based at our Medway Office. She is experienced in dealing with both matrimonial and general litigation matters.
Since joining the department in January 2018 Hannah has dealt with a variety of matrimonial and litigation matters and has experience with divorce and finance, children law, landlord and tenant matters, property, land and other general disputes. Hannah has recently enrolled to complete an accreditation in contested probate, having developed a keen interest in this field whilst completing her training with the firm.
What Hannah says:
I joined the Dispute Resolution team in January 2018 and have been exposed now to an array of client disputes, both in the matrimonial context and general litigative context. As such I now have extensive experience in dealing with matters requiring resolution be it by way of negotiation, settlement or court proceedings. The matters I have dealt with are varied, from land and property disputes to family disputes. I am most interested in contested probate matters and am now working to complete my accreditation in this area of law.
I have always had a keen interest in litigation. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Reading and completed my LPC at the University of Law, Bloomsbury where I simultaneously achieved a Masters in Professional Practice. Throughout my studies I had elected to study litigative modules such as family law, property law and litigation.
Prior to joining the dispute resolution team I had worked within the Wills and Probate team and had first hand experience with administration of estates. Probate and trust disputes are becoming more and more common and the legal process of challenging a Will is often extremely intricate and complex, requiring a keen understanding of both the law and the client’s circumstances. Recently I have been involved with cases that have centred around allegations of lack of mental capacity and undue influence and that are now before the High Court.
Outside of the office I am devoted to my dog, Lily. We have been lucky enough to qualify for Crufts two years in a row. I am also a yogi.
