Our trainees and paralegals

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:-

“Since joining Hopkin Murray Beskine in February 2020 as a paralegal supporting the public family law team, I have learned a huge amount. This is a busy role which requires hard work but it is also very rewarding. The supportive environment at HMB and the use of an excellent practice management system made it easy for me to settle in and to continue working effectively during the pandemic. I feel very lucky to have been able to gain an introduction to family law at HMB. I am very excited to have recently started a training contract at HMB and I am looking forward to progressing further.” (Jean Abdalo, trainee solicitor, 2022)

“On first joining HMB in January 2019 I provided support to the family department, working on a range of cases from private ancillary relief and domestic violence injunctions to international child abduction work. I have since gained valuable experience in housing and public law, assisting on a wide range of cases at all levels from the County Court to the Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights. There is a good balance at HMB with excellent supervision but plenty of responsibility. I think that any lawyer starting out in their career would enjoy the variety of work and the collaborative environment at HMB, and I am looking forward to gaining more experience as I complete my training contract”. (Molly Hood, trainee solicitor, 2021)

“Since starting at HMB in 2019, initially as a paralegal, I have been able to contribute to really interesting and rewarding work. This has included issuing judicial review proceedings in the High Court, assisting with possession and disrepair cases in the County Court, and assisting with appeals. I have particularly enjoyed having the opportunity to be involved in strategic litigation. I have gained a huge amount from working alongside experienced solicitors in the supportive learning environment at HMB. The experience of legal practice at HMB fits well alongside studying the Legal Practice Course part-time, and I am now looking forward to completing my training contract at HMB” (Beatrice Patrick, trainee solicitor, 2021)

“Since joining the housing and public law team at Hopkin Murray Beskine under the Justice First Fellowship scheme, I have had the opportunity to assist experienced solicitors with really interesting work, from complicated possession and disrepair cases to judicial review claims where safe housing is needed for a disabled child. The work is busy and challenging but very worthwhile. Everyone at the firm is friendly and supportive and the firm’s new office provides a great atmosphere in which to work and learn. I am looking forward to gaining more experience as my training contract progresses.” (Anisa Mohamed, trainee solicitor, 2022)
