Amanda joined Kenneth Bush in January 2006 after having completed her initial training contract with a firm of solicitors in Norwich, and successfully passing all of her exams to become a fully qualified solicitor in June 2001. She is also an accredited member of the Law Society Advanced Family Law Panel.
She has a strong financial background, having previously worked with the Contributions Agency in debt recovery, and with Leicester City Council as a Senior Investigations Officer uncovering fraud and financial irregularities. This means that together with her legal expertise, Amanda can utilise her skills in auditing and accounting for the benefit of her clients at Kenneth Bush.
Indeed Amanda is adept at handling complex cases where a great deal of auditing is required, and she can help to resolve financial disputes between parties where there are multiple homes, business properties, pensions, and assets to consider, held in the UK or abroad. As a result, she is often asked to represent high net worth individuals, as well as business owners or clients who are in partnerships.
When not in the office, Amanda can often be found at court. She has excellent negotiation and advocacy skills, and has undertaken work before Magistrates in the Family Proceedings Court, District Judges in the County Court, and also at the High Court of Justice in London. She likes to take full responsibility for cases from start to finish wherever possible, and is focused on providing excellent client care, exceeding client expectations, and giving firm, frank and honest advice that clients can trust.
