The most interesting aspect of my work is listening to people’s stories. Sometimes they can beat a Dickens novel with their twists and turns and coincidences. They’re fascinating and, because so many of them involve people losing touch with one another, they’re often also very moving. However, because of the nature of my job, I’m not just a passive listener, I’m engaged in the story, filling in all the details through research and tieing up the loose ends. I'm a firm believer that knowing and understanding the past helps to heal it.

Lisa joined Anglia Research in 2007. Originally from California, now residing in England, she comes from a strong research background, having worked as a research analyst of the California commercial property market, a freelance researcher of copyright law, and studied for a PhD in Literature at the University of Essex.

Lisa's testimonials:

I have instructed Dr Lisa Hill on many occasions and have always been impressed by her efficiency and expedition in dealing with my cases. She is friendly, professional and always helpful. I would not hesitate to instruct Dr Hill again and would certainly recommend her services to my colleagues and clients alike.
— Teresa Callender, Ashtons Legal

In most fields of expertise there is a stand out performer. In her field, this is Dr Lisa Hill. I am a member of STEP, and a private client lawyer of many years standing. Usually I am the objective professional. The death of a hitherto unknown relative, followed too closely by my brother, changed that. Dr Hill was the objective professional, but more than that, she clearly cared about what she was doing, she found relatives that another firm couldn’t, and treated my sister in law, and me, with compassion that was at the time very much needed. She is my “go to” person in the industry.
