"I understand working in Wills and Estates is an emotional area. My role is to go through the client’s history, often from the day that they were born until the day one of their parents has passed away. Sitting with clients and hearing a story of their life is a unique experience. Everyone has a different story to tell, and different reasons as to why they have been left out of a will. Each case needs to be assessed on its own merit."

"I derive immense satisfaction from supporting clients through the legal process, and realising successful legal outcomes that often changes a client's life."

"What drives me is the ability to provide support to others and continue to improve social justice for everyone. Litigation can be daunting for clients, I ensure that my clients are confident and fully understand the process and the options available to them."

Alana holds Bachelor degrees in Arts and Law, has worked in general litigation including commercial, property, institutional abuse, personal injury and family law.
