Anna Heeley is an Associate Partner in the Road Traffic Accident department at Express Solicitors, having joined the firm in October 2013. Anna specialises in complex matters such as disputes over liability, accidents involving a number of injuries, and accidents resulting in serious injuries. When asked about her role at the firm, Anna explained: “I love working as a personal injury solicitor as I enjoy arguing and winning! My mum often says that she hasn’t won an argument with me since I was 6 years old. It’s not that I’m always right… I’m just good at arguing a point and love to win!” Anna’s passion to win an argument may go some way towards explaining her favourite quote by Confucius: ‘Choose a job you love, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.’
Anna has a great eye for detail and ensures that every single avenue has been exhausted in order to pick up on any key points. She comments: “In my cases I often see what others have missed, and it’s key details that have won me a great number of cases in the past!”
Before joining Express Solicitors Anna worked at Savas & Savage Solicitors for a little over 7 years where she was promoted to an Associate Solicitor position. She gained a law degree from Liverpool John Moores University in 2005 before going on to study an LPC at Chester College of Law.
Anna has been recognised in the 2017 Legal 500 who commented
