Paralegals and trainee solicitors at Hopkin Murray Beskine
Our solicitors rely on the support of our paralegals, many of whom go on to complete training contracts with the firm. We provide a collaborative workplace where paralegals are well supported and supervised by experienced lawyers in our specialist family, public law and housing teams. Paralegals and trainee solicitors will have experience of a wide range of cases, including within our thriving legal aid practice.
Some recent comments from our trainee solicitors and paralegals:-
"In the nine months since starting at HMB I have seen clients, attended with the duty solicitor assisting with the possession list in the County Court, run my own files with supervision and have assisted in cases in the County Court, High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court. I have been able to work on a range of interesting public law and housing cases in a supportive and friendly environment and I am looking forward to completing my training contract.” (Graniah Douglas, trainee solicitor, 2016)
"Since coming to HMB in 2015 I have been able to develop my interest in family law. I have had the opportunity to work on a range of cases, from care proceedings to private ancillary relief and from domestic violence injunctions to international child abduction work. I have been able to provide advice at Hearthstone, a domestic violence and support centre, and to conduct advocacy on my own cases. I think that any lawyer starting out in their career would enjoy the variety of work and the collaborative environment at HMB. I am very pleased that I will be starting my training contract here soon and I look forward to also working in our other specialist areas of housing and public law.” (Avneet Panesar, trainee solicitor, 2016)
"Since starting at HMB in August 2016 in the housing and public law department I have assisted on a variety of cases including possession, disrepair, homelessness and judicial review. I was immediately made to feel a part of the team, and the high level of responsibility I was given from the outset means I have learnt a huge amount very quickly. The collaborative environment here at HMB is very enjoyable, and the work is really interesting but also of great importance to our clients, who are often vulnerable people in difficult situations. I have loved my first few months here and very much look forward to taking on my own case load and developing my legal knowledge as I progress.” (Rosie Gibbs, paralegal, 2016)
