Solicitor

Job Role at EMG

I joined EMG as a Solicitor in January 2023 and specialise in Residential Conveyancing.  The majority of my work involves the buying, selling and refinancing of house, both freehold and leasehold.

Experience

Prior to joining EMG, I have worked as a Family Paralegal but started my Residential Conveyancing journey in 2016 as a secretary in a local law firm.  After 5 years of working my way up to Trainee Solicitor, I qualified as a Solicitor in February 2021.  I believe that having a good relationship with clients is really important to my role as buying and selling houses can be stressful, so communication is key.

What do you like about working at EMG?

It is great to be a part of a firm that supports each other and the local community.

Outside of EMG?

Outside of work I love to read crime fiction, spend time with my family and go for walks with my dachshund, Versace.  I am a huge Harry Potter fan and love visiting places where the films have been set.
