Four graduates have been promoted to trainee solicitors at Shropshire law firm Terry Jones Solicitors.
Emma Humphreys, Zoe Smith, Lily Timmins and Emma Whitehouse have begun their ‘period of recognised training’, the final stage on the path to qualifying as a solicitor.
Terry Jones Solicitors has four offices in Shropshire – Telford, Shrewsbury, Bridgnorth and Newport.
Emma Whitehouse and Lily Timmins are with the residential conveyancing teams in the Telford and Bridgnorth offices respectively, whilst Emma Humphreys helps the wills and probate department at Shrewsbury.
Zoe Smith, who is also based at the Shrewsbury office, works alongside managing director Terry Jones in commercial property and agricultural law.
Terry Jones said: “Over the last 12 months, these young ladies have demonstrated their commitment to the firm, and as just reward we were delighted to offer them a training contract.
“This will allow them to put into practice all the knowledge and skills they have learnt thus far. It is gratifying to watch them progress with their hard work paying off as they commence the next step of the career.”
Lily Timmins said: “The growth within the conveyancing department has been significant since I joined the firm in 2015, and I thoroughly enjoy working in such a fast paced and exciting environment. To now be awarded a training contract is an amazing opportunity.”
Zoe Smith added: “I am very excited about the opportunities that have arisen and I very much look forward to working alongside Terry Jones and progressing within the commercial property and agricultural department, as it is an area of law I am very passionate about”.
Having spent her first few months at the Telford office, Emma Humphreys relocated to Shrewsbury to join the wills and probate team. She said: “I am delighted to have been offered a training contract and I am looking forward to completing my period of recognised training with the firm.”
