Tamsin Lester-John

Legal Assistant

I joined Hedges fresh from completing my Bachelor of Laws (LLB)(Honours), which I achieved a First Class Honours in, alongside raising my young daughter. I have always had a passion for law and am excited to develop my legal career in such a unique and well-respected law firm. Having undertaken school work experience at Hedges back in 2011, it feels like things have come full circle to now be a part of the Private Client team, providing support in both Probate and Lifetime matters. I am due to start my LPC LLM postgraduate programme in September 2023, which on completion I hope to obtain a training contract here at Hedges.

In my spare time I am an avid baker, having started my own baked goods business during Covid, specialising in brownies and celebration cakes. Outside of this, I am incredibly family-orientated and spend the rest of my free time with my family and close friends.
