Eilísh Adams - The Law House Family Law Solicitors, London & Peterborough

Client Profile Image

Given the weather, where would you holiday in the UK and why?

1. Constantine Bay in Cornwall. Best place to be in the sun or rain and open all year for dog walking, truly heaven.

One thing I never travel without and why?

2. Global adapter, usually two of them because someone always borrows yours. Nothing worse than not being able charge the kindle, phone, tablet or laptop.

What is the best piece of technology you have ever owned and why?

3. More of an app really, Audible. Saves carrying 10 books. Does anyone remember how much luggage space books take up. Headphones on and the smell of salty air, nothing better.

What is your best reason for cancelling an appointment? Did it work and did you feel guilty?

1. None, but that doesn’t stop me. Making arrangements always seems like a good idea but then life intervenes. When people cancel before I do the relief is palpable.

How environmentally friendly am I?

5. Pretty good, remember when you would put out 3 bags of rubbish a week, now it is only once a month and barely one bag at that!

I am a solicitor and I specialise in Wills, Probate, Trusts and Lasting Powers of Attorney. I am also one of the directors of The Law House.

Prior to life as a lawyer, I had a background in psychotherapy. This does add a dimension of having a sensitive and thoughtful approach when dealing with clients. That said, I have a morbid sense of humour and you may often hear me joke about death. I do this to ease clients at what can often be a difficult time. From making a Will to dealing with the death of a loved one, my daily role is to deal with all things morbid. I try to make it humorous and to challenge clients’ perceptions of what to expect in their lawyer. I don’t believe in formality and often find that with a bit of humour, making a Will does not seem as daunting and once done, my clients can get on with living their lives knowing they have taken care of the important things.

In my role as a director, I also spread the word about The Law House and am involved in marketing and business development for the firm.
