Inspiring Quote

“If you love what you are doing you will be successful.”

Mission Statement: Relax. You’re in Good Hands.

How did you end up in this role?

I decided at a young age to pursue a career in Law. I graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2018 and undertook the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice in 2018/19. When I received notification that Simplicity Legal were recruiting Legal Assistants I decided to apply. I’d known of the firm from University and admired their client focused practice.

I was delighted to be taken on as a Legal Assistant in January 2019 and thereafter offered a Training Contract with the firm. I commenced my Training Contract in June 2019 and am now a fully qualified Solicitor.

What do you love most about your job?

Every day is different. There is no limit to the opportunities you are presented with and every day comes with a new lesson.  I have the opportunity to meet a wide variety of people all with various legal issues and no two are ever the same.

When I was considering my future in Law it was important for me to find a firm that had a unique approach to the profession that placed client needs at the forefront of the practice and that is exactly what we do.

How do you do what you do?

With a high degree of organization and a lot of hard work but with the knowledge and understanding that I’ve provided the help and assistance that my clients need.

Personal Information

When I’m not at work I enjoy sports, socializing and travelling.

I achieved my Third Dan Black Belt in 2018. I started Karate in 2004 and it has provided a platform to meet new people that I otherwise would not have come into contact with. I’ve been able to take the same determination and focus and apply it elsewhere, it was really useful when studying at University.

I also love travelling and am planning on visiting Vancouver again soon. I also play Violin and Piano and enjoy playing, when I can find the time!
