How did you end up working for a law firm? By complete chance, I got a job as a paralegal in a Solicitor’s office during a break in my studies and enjoyed it so much that I decided to pursue a career in law.

Reviews & testimonials:
I recently completed a long and acrimonious divorce with the help of Gill Graveson and Ellen Woodward from the Preston office. I can’t speak highly enough of them and their Secretary, Carol. Throughout a very difficult process, they were professional, calm and supportive and helped me steer a sensible path in the face of extreme provocation. We reached a settlement that I was very happy with, and I was able to walk away with my dignity and integrity intact. The conveyancing for the transfer of the former matrimonial home was dealt with by the equally brilliant Samina Master, who showed professionalism, kindness and empathy. I’d like to thank all of you ladies - you kept me sane!
Excellent service from all departments.
