Based in our South London Offices at Elephant & Castle, Wallace is a housing and property law specialist. An Oxford University graduate, she has a strong sense of social justice, which has led her to advise on issues such as homelessness, disrepair, leaseholder disputes, and possession.
Wallace also advises and represents clients in complex judicial review applications involving the allocation of housing and accommodation suitability. Holding local authorities to account for their decisions is what drives her.
It was a secondment to a law centre whilst she was completing her training contract at a Magic Circle law firm that inspired Wallace to focus on housing law. She was deeply moved by the passion of the people who worked at the law centre and found the work intensely rewarding.
Wallace takes the time to meet clients in person. She pays meticulous attention to detail and is always well prepared. She is also alive to the latest legal developments in the housing area. She is happy to take on thorny cases which other solicitors may decline. She likes a challenge and the knowledge that her work is making a concrete difference in people’s lives.
