Amy Tagoe

Housing Law Solicitor and Associate

Amy has been specialising in all areas of housing law since 2005 and joined Stephensons in 2012.

Amy studied law at the University of Liverpool, followed by a masters degree in international law and human rights. Amy was called to the bar in 2005 following completion of the BVC and was admitted as a solicitor in 2008.

In addition to acting for clients under legal aid funding and on a private basis, including some fixed fee services, from our offices throughout the North West, Amy also provides advice at a number of free legal advice clinics within the Trafford area. Amy also offers training and advice to local voluntary agencies and charities on aspects of housing law and has close contact with the local Citizens Advice Bureaus to provide specialist assistance.

Amy has a great deal of experience and a particular interest in dealing with clients with mental health issues and often acts on behalf of clients through the Official Solicitor. Amy believes in providing a complete service to the client which will include ensuring that appropriate support is available to clients throughout proceedings and after proceedings have concluded to enable them to manage their tenancies in the future.

Amy enjoys representing people at court and enabling people to remain in their home or to help homeless people to find a home. She currently has three high profile cases pending at the Court of Appeal which could have a significant and far reaching impact in housing law.

Amy also enjoys writing on specific areas of housing law and has written blogs for the Stephensons website and articles for a local newspaper.

Amy is listed as an notable practitioner by the 2017 edition of Chambers and Partners.

What clients think

As a mentally and physically disabled client of Stephensons, I have been astounded by their eye for detail, their impeccable social skills, and their ability to make more than reasonable adjustments for their mentally disabled clients. I have used Stephensons for many years, and would never go anywhere else for legal advice. In my opinion, Stephensons are currently the best solicitors within the United Kingdom and I would have no problem recommending them to family and friends. Tahira Chakotai
