- Executor and trustee disputes
- Proprietary Estoppel and claims under the Trust of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996 (TOLATA).
What inspired you to get into law?
I first became interested in the law during my A-Levels. After gaining work experience in the area of private client law and experiencing first hand the way that we can dramatically and positively change lives, I immediately became drawn to a career in law.

Irwin Mitchell is a firm that prides itself on excellent client service and is constantly seeking to improve the same.
"From the moment of contact I was carefully listened to and guided as to the best course of action. The professional approach by Amanda Holden was second to none. The case was protracted, not due to Irwin Mitchell's professionalism, which has been exceptional. I was kept constantly in the loop, given brilliant advice and literally had my hand held when the case became particularly difficult. I have been able to contact Amanda easily during working hours and she always responded quickly when I had any queries. Had I not used Irwin Mitchell and been allocated Amanda I believe that justice may not have been done and my father's wishes not carried out. I cannot thank Amanda enough."
