Amanda Melton

Committee Member


I am Head of the family law and contentious probate team at IBB Solicitors. I am a specialist lawyer dealing with financial aspects of relationship breakdown and disputed aspects of a deceased’s estate.

My aim is to listen to what my clients want to achieve, discuss with them a strategy to achieve those aims or the nearest achievable aims and then to assist them in implementing that strategy whether by way of agreement or by way of hard fought litigation if required. I can assist in arranging funding for those people who have limited resources in their own right but who need to pursue their spouse to obtain a settlement which is fair and reflects their contribution to the relationship. I can also assist in cases where assets are being hidden or disposed of to avoid claims.

As an experienced lawyer and litigator in all types of family dispute I can guide my clients through the process and assist them in achieving the best possible outcome.

I am also a Trustee of the Chiltern child Contact Centre and in my spare time I love to spend time with my husband walking (with our very spoilt dog Hamish) and boating whenever possible.

I am also a keen dressmaker and enjoy all manner of crafts and cooking.
