Amy Lang

Amy has worked hard to overcome adversity to get where she is. In some ways she is Martha, 15 years ago.

Quick and clever, Amy has a strong moral compass and cares about her work. Despite her spiralling debt and lack of earning potential, Amy relishes the opportunity to learn from the Silks at Shoe Lane.

When her first client isn’t quite what she expects Amy must fight hard to defend him and stand up for herself, earning the respect of those in Chambers even if it doesn’t quite go to plan.

Later in the series Amy finds herself in the middle of a confusing situation she misinterprets. In determining to do the right thing Amy threatens her position in Chambers despite all her hard work.
