Assistant Solicitor

I qualified as an Assistant Solicitor in December 2018.  

I began working at Minton Morrill after completing my postgraduate studies in 2014. I subsequently qualified as an assistant solicitor in December 2018 within the Court of Protection department. Working in the Court of Protection department is a humbling and rewarding experience as I have the opportunity to work with families around the country who all have their own individual journeys which I am obliged to be a part of.
