I am pleased to have the opportunity to assist people at what can be a very distressing time in their lives,” she said. 

Simon Leach, Director at Family Law Group, added: “We are really delighted to have these talented young people furthering their careers with us,” he said. “They are the kind of people who see law as more than a just career, but a vocation to help people. It’s a vital difference and this is what the legal profession needs. We wish them all well and will continue to support them in their progression.”
