Lisa Wood – Appointed director of WTW Solicitors 01.04.2019

Lisa Wood

Waddington Turner Wall Solicitors are delighted to announce the appointment of Lisa Wood to the Board of Directors.

Lisa, who lives in Oakworth near Keighley, joined Turner and Wall Solicitors in 1990. She started as a junior typist and, shortly after, was promoted to a secretarial post in the civil litigation department.

Lisa embarked upon and successfully completed a law degree at Leeds Metropolitan University with the encouragement and support of the practice. This was closely followed by completion of the Legal Practice Course at the University of Huddersfield. The fact that this was achieved whilst working full time and with a young family, is all the more admirable.

Qualified as a solicitor – 2011

Lisa was admitted to the roll of solicitors for England and Wales in 2011. She chose to specialise in personal injury, clinical negligence and probate litigation.
Through her determination, resilience, hard work and ability Lisa has proved herself both in legal work and management tasks meriting this appointment.

Interests & Hobbies 

Lisa spends her time away from the office exploring the outdoors with her family and dogs. She is an enthusiastic member of national trust. She enjoys DIY and cooking and makes a mean chilli.

What Lisa Wood thinks…

“I am delighted to finally be able to share this news. My family and the WTW team have been really supportive and I view this as a really positive step for both me and the company. I am more than ready to play my part in the business’s ongoing success and development.”


The expansion of the board is another indication of the commitment Waddington Turner Wall solicitors has to growing the business. We will continue to encourage this kind of career progression to anyone who has the qualities displayed by Lisa.
