Job Role at EMG

I am a family solicitor and I joined EMG in June 2023. I am regularly instructed in all areas of family law including divorce, separation, financial matters, and child contact arrangements.


I qualified as a solicitor in February 2021 having completed my solicitor training contract at a well-established firm in West Cumbria. I continued with this firm upon qualification until joining EMG.

I achieved a first-class honours in Law (University of Cumbria) in 2016 and passed the LPC with Distinction (Northumbria University) in 2019. I have worked in law firms for most of my career starting as a Residential Conveyancing Paralegal in 2016.

What do you like about working at EMG?

My colleagues! Everyone at EMG has been so friendly and welcoming. I could not ask for a better working environment.

Outside of EMG?

In my free time I enjoy walking in the Lake District, jetting off on city breaks and spending time with my family and Jack Russell Tink.
