Josh Ryan | Trainee 020 7874 8526

I initially joined Hodge Jones & Allen as a Legal Help Advisor and, soon after, joined the Private Client department as a Paralegal specialising in wills, probate, lasting powers of attorney and Inheritance Tax. After my stint as a Paralegal, I now sit as a Trainee Solicitor in the Dispute Resolution department under the supervision of Chun Wong.

I currently assist on all areas of civil litigation – TLATA claims, contested probate and professional negligence to name but a few. My varied employment background lends itself to the wide-ranging nature of civil litigation and my time spent studying in France has enabled me to see things from a different viewpoint.

Specialist Area

  • Wills, Trusts & Probate

Client Comments

  • “Josh provided an efficient and effective service. Courteous and informative.”
  • “Josh was very helpful in dealing with all my enquiries and also in the drawing up of the final will. I’d previously had no experience at all with dealing with the law and legal side of doing things and Josh made me feel more like a valued client than a complete ignoramus.”
  • “I was very pleased at the way HJA and you had handled my affairs and would happily suggest to my ‘not so young friends’ that they come to you for the same treatment!”
  • “Thanks so much for your displayed patience and understanding regarding the drafting of my will, which had been quite a challenge.”
  • “My case was about making a final will. Since I don’t own any property it was a fairly straight forward matter and I was pleased the way it was handled.”
  • “Thank you very much for your help and kindness.”
  • “Very professional and efficient.”
  • “Friendly, approachable and issues handled sensitively, I felt comfortable.”


  • LPC – BPP (Distinction)
  • Diplome d’Université du Droit Francais – Université Pierre-Mendes France (Grenoble III) (Bien/First)
  • LLB Law with French Law and Language (Hons) – The University of Hull (2:1)


  • Joined Hodge Jones & Allen in December 2014
  • Legal placements at Bond Dickinson LLP, Gordons LLP and in-house with the Legal Department at Philips plc.

Personal Interests

Having spent a year in the French Alps, I love Alpine culture and cuisine. I aim to go skiing once a year- being attracted to the risk and adrenaline of the sport – and have visited many of the main ski slopes in France.
Aside from being a Francophile, I enjoy reading, travelling and learning about different cultures.
