Get to know Kelly
I have 20 years’ experience working within the legal sector, 18 of those years working in Private Client. I joined Slater & Gordon in November 2023, having worked at high street firms previously, and am based in the Manchester Office.
My role as a Probate Executive means that I take clients instructions in relation to their Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Grant of Representation Applications, to also include administration of estates both taxable and non-taxable.
I completed my Law Degree in 2021 after studying part time for 6 years. Presently, I am studying for my Master's Degree, which includes an SQE preparation course with a view to taking the SQE exams in 2024. Upon completion, I will be a fully qualified solicitor.
I take immense pride in my journey within the legal sector, having embarked on this path at the age of 17 as a legal secretary. Through dedication and perseverance, I was promoted to the role of a Paralegal Assistant before progressing to my current position as a Probate Executive.
My pursuit of a Law Degree was a testament to my commitment, achieved through part-time study over six years while balancing full-time work responsibilities and caring for my three young children. Despite the challenges, my unwavering ambition remains focused on realising my ultimate goal—to qualify as a Solicitor, a culmination of years of hard work and determination.
The extra mile
I have actively participated in free Will Weeks in the past, aimed at raising funds for various local charities. Through these initiatives, I've contributed to supporting organisations such as Christies, St Ann’s Hospice, Dr Kershaws, and the Anthony Seddon Fund, among several others. These events served as opportunities to extend support to these charitable causes, underscoring my commitment to giving back to the community through the legal expertise and services I offer.
