Amy is a Partner specialising in inheritance disputes, otherwise known as Contentious Probate, but also with extensive experience in all elements of private client matters.

Amy qualified as Solicitor in February 2008 after studying LLB in Law at the University of Plymouth, attending the Legal Practice Course at Oxford Institute of Legal Practice and undertaking her training contract with a Plymouth Law firm where she continued to work as a Solicitor in the Private Client Department until joining WBW in February 2013.

Amy enjoys spending much of her free time with her young daughter, as well as walking, reading, and playing & watching netball.


“May I take this opportunity to say how much I appreciated your efforts in this regard. I feel that I was fully justified, once more, in calling on WBW Solicitors to handle this work, safe in the knowledge that they would have an expert to hand.”

“After a meeting with Amy Read, and further dealings with Deborah Ogle, they came up with an imaginative answer to my problem. All at WBW could not have been more helpful and I am very pleased with the outcome.”

“It was clearly evident that the care you took at the outset of my case to protect my own situation put me in a much stronger and safer position to fight my case.”

“Nothing has been too much trouble, phone calls returned promptly and I felt that my well being has always been at the forefront of your mind at all times.”

“You managed to explain a complex matter in a very straightforward way which I found easy to understand.”

“We wish to thank you for your diligence, thoughtfulness and professionalism.”

“I went to several Solicitors, large and small, regarding contesting a will.  One well known Solicitor in Exeter actually stated that there was not enough money in it for them and they would not take the case. I also contacted Solicitors around the country who specialise in the  Contentious Probate field.  They were helpful and had proven success but I felt the distances were prohibitive. I then looked at local Solicitor’s websites and saw Amy Read’s profile which interested me and I contacted her and made an appointment.  Without any real hope…Amy took her time going through our problems and actually said she would take on the case.  We found her sympathetic to our cause and  she actually wanted to help in stark contrast to the other Solicitors we had spoken to in our area. Our case was successful due to the continued support we had from Amy.  She kept us up to date on a regular basis which helped a great deal. I would not hesitate to use WBW again for any future issues.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your colleagues for the exceptional level of service you have provided. I am aware that dealing with my uncles estate,  has at times been incredibly difficult. Thank your for your tolerance, patience and assistance.”
