I enjoy the challenges that come with working as a private client solicitor, being in a position to help clients through difficult times and helping clients put their affairs in order.


Bella studied History at the University of Hull before attending the York College of Law to study for the Graduate Diploma in Law and the Legal Practice Course. Bella joined Ware & Kay in York in 2011 as a paralegal, completing her legal training whilst working at Ware & Kay and qualifying as a Solicitor in October 2015. Upon qualifying, Bella spent time working at the Wetherby and York offices. After leaving Ware & Kay in 2018, Bella worked at Rollits in York and Hull and re-joined Ware Kay in July 2019. Her areas of expertise include applications for probate and the administration of estates, preparation of Wills and powers of attorney, Court of Protection matters and trusts.

Bella is a member of Solicitors for the Elderly and a member of STEP, the world's leading organisation for private client professionals. In her spare time, Bella enjoys fell walking, indoor and outdoor climbing, skiing and travel.
