I am currently a Trainee Solicitor working in the Tunbridge Wells office.  I started my training contract in September 2017, having worked as a paralegal for over one year.  Since joining MW Solicitors, I have been involved in a range of residential property matters ranging from freehold and leasehold sales and purchases to re-mortgages and transfers of equity.

MW Solicitors is a forward thinking company that invests a lot of time and training into their trainees and paralegals. This approach has enabled me to learn a lot and as such I am now able to work independently and provide a pro-active and personal service to all our clients.

As a part of the graduate training MW Solicitors hosts an annual advocacy competition. This encourages paralegals and trainees to develop important skills such as research and drafting whilst also gaining confidence in advocacy. This year I took part in the competition for the first time and received very encouraging feedback from the judges. The challenge has greatly improved my confidence and core skills and I am looking forward to taking part again next year.

Work in the Community / Pro Bono Work

I have taken part in several charity runs, most recently the Eastbourne Half Marathon for St Wilfred’s Hospice.
