Stacey Bell

Portrait of Stacey BellStacey Bell is a process-driven Wills and Estates lawyer with a checklist for everything. She has been in the legal industry since 2015 and joined Snedden Hall & Gallop’s Wills and Estates team in 2022.

Over time, Stacey has developed a method for her legal practice. She ensures positive outcomes and keeps her clients informed. Stacey strives to make difficult conversations easier with her involvement, knowledge and expertise. She builds strong relationships with clients to understand their goals, needs, and concerns. She aims to create estate plans that uphold her clients’ wishes and stand the test of time.

Stacey also has a particular interest in advocating for those who cannot speak for themselves, particularly in guardianship or contested estate matters.

Stacey has volunteered with the University of Canberra’s Women Lawyers Mentor Program. The program matches students with experienced lawyers. It aims to create networking and mentorship chances. The program also supports female lawyers in Canberra through panel events. In 2021, Stacey became Chair of the ACT Women Lawyers Association’s Marketing and Communications sub-committee but retired in 2023 to start her Masters of Applied Laws in 2024.

The details of Stacey’s presentation will be published soon.
