Helena Melaisi

Legal Secretary


I originally joined the firm in 1979 and have had the pleasure of working with and supporting a number of YVA’s lawyers. Originally, I was secretary for Paul Yiannakis Snr, where I gained experience of litigation, conveyancing and matrimonial law. After a short career break, I rejoined the firm and worked for Lambros Lambrou for twenty years.

I currently support Jonathan Bishop on residential and commercial transactions.
On the weekend I… spend time with my family. On a Sunday we always like to have a big family lunch.
On my first day at YVA…I remember Paul making me feel very welcome and taking me under his wing. I was thrown in at the deep end but this was to my benefit in the long run. YVA is a friendly, supportive firm which is the reason I have been here for so many years. It is rare people leave and if they do – they tend to return! It is my pleasure to be part of this family.
