Solicitor – Dispute Resolution
Sam joined Lupton Fawcett in December 2020 as a Solicitor in the Dispute Resolution Team in Leeds. She studied Law at Staffordshire University and graduated in 2008.
Sam is a Contentious Trust and Probate specialist and advises on a wide range of wills, trusts and estate disputes.
These cases are emotionally challenging and upsetting for the people involved because they have often lost someone close to them. Sam will always explore the possibility of an early settlement. Sometimes this cannot be achieved, and court proceedings are necessary but Sam will fight hard to get the right result for clients.
“I was faced with a situation where it wasn’t ‘a solicitor’ that I needed, I needed a ‘solicitor with a heart’ and that’s what I found in Sam Hirst. Kind, efficient, to the point and I’d give her 10 out of 10 for fighting my corner. Thank you Sam, I shall forever be grateful for you representing me during my most difficult time. Wish you the very best.”

“Sam (Hirst) represented me and my family in connection with some issues with my late fathers estate. We found Sam to be a good listener and could rely on her to come up with solutions to resolve the issues we faced, she was professional and reassuring at all times. Sam made a very hard time much easier to deal with and I would recommend her to anyone in a similar situation.”
“I strongly recommend and can provide references to anyone thinking of hiring Sam (Hirst) to help navigate a probate / family dispute. She is calm, expert and always on point. She is a complete star of a solicitor and I cannot recommend her more highly. Very satisfied clients.”
“Sam (Hirst) is one of the best probate dispute lawyers I have ever come across. Sam’s ability to calmly stride through complex legal and family issues – is a rare talent. She is also responsive, caring and cost aware at all time. A superb mix and I was very lucky to find her for my client.”
“I highly recommend Sam (Hirst) for conduct of family inheritance / property disputes. We would have been lost without her calm and wise manner. It is obvious from the get go that she is used to dealing with contested matters between relatives. Sam’s expertise and practical approach was both reassuring and effective to achieve the resolution that was in the best interests of everyone. She was also 100% accurate with her costs estimate! Very happy client, thank you Sam!”
