Hayley is passionate about inheritance disputes and is experienced in the delicacy of skills required to fight her clients' corner for them at a time when they are at their most vulnerable, grieving the loss of their loved one. She has successfully concluded a high majority of cases by settlement (normally by mediation) but is also a tenacious advocate for her clients in the minority of cases which make it to trial.
She is a keen advocate of ADR, specifically mediation, which has great potential for resolving these claims to include resolution of disputes over items of sentimental importance, which the Courts cannot otherwise resolve.
Outside of work Hayley enjoys running and keeping fit, reading, films, spending time with family and friends and visiting her parents’ apartment in Spain.
