Louise O'Donnell, Wills, Probate & Inheritance Solicitor at Hedges Law

Louise O'Donnell


I am a STEP qualified Private Client solicitor and specialise in probate and estate administration.

I completed my law degree in European, Comparative and International Law followed by the Legal Practice Course at the University of Sheffield and the University of Leuven in Belgium. I went on to complete my solicitor’s training contract at a firm in Bath, and qualified as a solicitor in 2009.

Following 7 years working for the private wealth team within a large national law firm, I relocated to Oxfordshire in 2018 and I have loved the county ever since. I particularly enjoy the strong community spirit and the welcoming people I have met here.

I have three young and wonderful children. We love spending our weekends taking part in all the sports we can and going on adventures through the beautiful local countryside.
