Rebecca Stapleton


Rebecca is a newly qualified lawyer specialising in private client work, including drafting wills and powers of attorney, as well as contentious probate matters, including disputes about wills and inheritance.

Rebecca embarked on her legal career at Samuels Solicitors in November 2016 as an Office Assistant and swiftly progressed to a Legal Secretary, Paralegal and then Trainee Solicitor. Rebecca achieved a 2:1 Bachelor of Law (Honours) Degree with the Open University whilst working full time as a Paralegal and subsequently completed her Legal Practice Course at the University of Law in Bristol whilst working full time as a Trainee Solicitor. Her academic journey culminated in the attainment of a Master of Laws (LLM) during which she compiled a research report on the Office of the Public Guardian’s 2025 Transformation programme and the protection of vulnerable donors in preparing lasting powers of attorney.

As a result of her training, Rebecca has a wide breadth of experience in property litigation, residential and commercial conveyancing, professional negligence, private client and contentious probate. Her diverse skill set is invaluable to both her clients and colleagues.

Rebecca is dedicated to providing a compassionate and pragmatic approach to all matters she handles, whether contentious or non-contentious. She has a particular interest in challenges to the validity of wills, claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependents) Act 1975, breach of trust disputes and TOLATA proceedings but also offers effective will writing and estate administration services.

Currently readjusting to the luxury of weekends after 5 to 6 years of study, Rebecca has found a new love of Pilates and badminton.
