I have lived in Hungerford for most of my life until moving out to Shalbourne with my parents and then to Ham with my partner last year. I studied at the two local schools, Hungerford Primary and John O’ Gaunt, and then went on to university to study law. After finishing my degree in Buckingham and LPC in Birmingham, I wanted to move back to the Hungerford area to work close to home.
I decided to take a few months off and started working in the local pub/restaurant. I started to look for training contracts in January of 2020 and as we all know, the pandemic hit, and the country was at a standstill. In March of 2021 when the country was getting back to normal, I got a notification on LinkedIn from a recruiter. She had seen my profile on CV library, and she had a local firm who were looking for a trainee. Within 3 weeks I was working at Marlborough Law.
It has been an amazing two years and I have learned so much from Alex and Karen. I passed my PSC exams with top marks in 2022 and then the countdown to qualification began.
Working within a small firm has been great as it has allowed me to experience a variety of different aspects of the law and has given me the opportunity to find what I really enjoy, which is conveyancing, probate client and family law. I have also been able to learn and practice on the job and have not been pushed to the side, which is what many law firms do to their trainees. In the last two years I have met and helped lots of people and have really become part of the community.
On the 7th April 2023 I became a fully qualified solicitor at Marlborough Law.
Now that I am qualified, I am looking forward to growing with Marlborough Law as the company expands, building up our conveyancing team, focusing on our retainers and Protect Your Business clients.
