Trainee Solicitor

Career History

I joined Neves in September 2018 following the completion of my Law degree and LPC. I have really enjoyed my first year at Neves and everybody has been friendly and welcomed me into the team.

My first seat was in the family department working firstly with Mary McEvoy before transferring to Milton Keynes to work in Beth Woodward’s team. My supervisors have been more than happy to take time out of their day to discuss my work with me and provide regular feedback, which has really helped me to develop and learn.

In October 2019 I moved into the conveyancing team with Kelly Loft in Milton Keynes and I am enjoying learning a completely different area of law and style of working.

Recent Cases

As a trainee I am given a lot of responsibility and exposure to complex cases, which has been great experience. Towards the end of my seat in the family team I began to take on my own files.

What makes me human

In my spare time you will often find me in the shopping centre, out for a run (begrudgingly!), in the kitchen, and spending as much time as possible with my family and friends.
