Anne Mills


Anne joined the firm in March 2000 as Legal Assistant to Claire Battye in the Property Team at Portsmouth whilst studying part-time for her LPC (solicitor’s practice course) at the College of Law in Guildford. She had previously graduated from St. Anne’s College, Oxford with a BA Hons in English before going on to take a Graduate Diploma in Law (popularly known as the law conversion). She was consequently offered a training contract in March 2001 and qualified as a solicitor in March 2003.

After qualification, Anne returned to the Property Team at Portsmouth as Assistant Solicitor and was promoted to Associate in 2005, before being promoted to a Partner of the firm in November 2020. She has led various teams at our branch offices during her time with the firm and specialises in all aspects of residential property.

Anne strives to give the highest level of service and still loves the satisfaction of helping people achieve their move in a smooth and relatively stress free manner. She now leads our office in Chandler’s Ford office which opened in February 2018 and offers conveyancing services for the local area.

Anne has two children and on the rare occasion that she has any leisure time she enjoys swimming, badminton, country walks, piano playing, and socialising with friends.

Highly recommended and have already recommended to family and friends. Anne and Katie dealt with my case. They are highly professional and incredibly approachable. I am particularly grateful for Anne's responsiveness and willingness to guide me through the whole process. Even when it is not strictly speaking a solicitor's job, she was happy to explain the norm and let me know what to expect. She did far more than just sign posting me to the relevant departments. The two worked very well as a team, and has catered for my complex needs.

As first time buyers Anne made the process very clear and smooth throughout and always responded to our queries in a helpful manner.  Very friendly team - Katie always responded in a detailed way making it clear what we needed to do next.

Most excellent service.  Throughout a difficult sale process, including the pandemic lockdown, Anne provided us with constant and excellent service, including much moral support.  I cannot thank her and Kate enough.

We appointed Warner Goodman following a personal recommendation, and what a brilliant decision that was! Anne and the team in the Chandler's Ford office were all highly professional, friendly and efficient throughout the buying and selling process. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you myself.

Great service!! So happy with the service received - my end of the deal was in place weeks before the seller’s solicitors were ready. Would highly recommend this firm from my experience with Anne and her team.

My faith in the legal profession was very low due to previous matters that I have been  involved in, but I am pleased to say that dealing with your office at Chandler’s Ford has been a completely different experience.

You have been accessible directly to me, when required, and your team have given me advice and help when needed without having to refer everything. They seem to know much more about the business than other firms that I have dealt with previously and I felt that I was regarded as an important client.
