Maya Elci


Maya specialises in contentious matters relating to wills, trusts and probate disputes.

“Maya took the time to carefully review our case when I didn’t think we had much hope and recommended proceeding. She was clear throughout the process and eventually managed to get a settlement that we were happy with.”

A satisfied client


Maya has experience in dealing with contentious matters at various stages including pre-action, mediation and within proceedings. She has dealt with various matters including:

  • Obtaining a satisfactory settlement (to include lifetime housing needs) for an adult child of the deceased who’s numerous Wills were rendered invalid due to lack of mental capacity.
  • Successfully protecting a large estate against a claim under proprietary estoppel which could have dramatically reduced the size of the estate.
  • Successfully assisting a family member to contest an application made by the OPG to the Court of protection to replace the original deputy without appreciation that other family members were competent to take on this role.
  • Contentious application to remove appointed attorney and setting a side the trust, enabling the client to take control of her assets.

"I am also happy I contacted your firm who are far better than any experience I have had from any of the solicitor firms in my town; You will never know how grateful I am to you and your solicitor firm Wright Hassall LLP."

A satisfied client


After gaining her law degree and concluding her LPC at Swansea University, Maya qualified in 2018 in London. Maya then joined a firm in West London as a newly qualified solicitor specialising in dispute resolution dealing with a variety of civil disputes before joining Wright Hassall.



Outside work Maya enjoys playing tennis and loves travelling. Maya also enjoys cooking and baking.
