I have worked as a solicitor at Lanyon Bowdler for over 30 years and have particularly enjoyed building up my practice and experience in contentious probate work during a large part of that period. The quality and range of work has always been very good and kept me interested.

I have been supported by Lanyon Bowdler throughout my career. Starting as a legal support assistant in 2016, undertaking my LPC part time, and then through my training contract. I am now recognised as an associate solicitor. It has been a supportive and friendly place to work.
