MICHELLE WOOD ( Wills & Probate )
Michelle began her career as a legal secretary. After six years, she returned to university and graduated with a law degree and Masters in Legal Practice from the University of Huddersfield in 2015. She went on to work as a Paralegal before securing a training contact and qualifying as a Solicitor in 2019.
Working at the firm’s Middleton office, Michelle acts for clients on all matters of wills and probate.
Outside of work, Michelle enjoys spending quality time with her daughter and going to the gym.
Everything was explained to me in the way I could understand and I could ask about things that were worrying me and I receive helpful advice. Michelle put me at ease on my visits and I felt I could discuss personal matters with her.
Michelle was so easy to talk to and made the process stress-free. I would highly recommend Russell & Russell to friends etc.
I was shown great empathy in the handling of my wife’s estate and the complicated paperwork was dealt with in order to produce a timely outcome. A very professional service.
The service we received from Michelle Wood was excellent and could not be improved. Michelle's advice and interpersonal skills helped us greatly at what was a very difficult time in our lives
Michelle Wood was so good, I would recommend her to anybody. She is an asset to Russell & Russell
Michelle was fantastic. Very friendly and easy to get on with. Rapport and trust is key and I feel I received both. Thank you
Michelle is brilliant. Apart from being efficient, she is also straight talking to the point and spoke to us on a level. The opposite of other solicitors we have encountered. She’s a keeper!
A big thank you to Michelle and full team. The moment I met all the stress I had disappeared and felt I was dealing with a friend I had for many years. You should be proud of yourselves and hope you and all families stay safe. Thank you again
May I just mention your receptionist Ruth who welcomed us with a huge smile and kind and friendly manner. Both Michelle and Ruth gave us the feeling that we really mattered to your Company. To our minds you are very lucky to have these very very pleasant people working for you
Michelle explained the process from the start and despite me requesting alterations to my Will 3 times, she met each request with professionalism and courtesy. I had an exact requirement and didn't at any time feel that I was being unreasonable.
Michelle put my requests to the forefront of time and workload to ensure that my Will was as I wanted. She at no time made me feel that my requests were excessive or uncalled for and supported me right through the process
Thank you Michelle
Michelle is a very nice person with a good sense of humour. She made us feel very relaxed right from the start. She explained things in a very professional way which was easy to understand. We could not have wished for a nicer person to deal with our needs. Thank you.
It seemed more like dealing with a friend rather than a solicitor! Need I say more!
Michelle listened to us with patience and understanding and with a very kindly approach throughout. We are very satisfied with our wills. Thank you for this and for the prompt and efficient way you dealt with matters
