We are delighted to announce that one of our trainee solicitors, Katie Coles, is now a fully qualified solicitor – huge congratulations to Katie!
Katie has been working toward this monumental moment for several years. She kick-started her career in law as a family law case worker and then gained experience through volunteering at The Access to Justice Foundation, The London Legal Support Trust and the Citizens Advice Bureau witness service. Her dedication to championing the rights of vulnerable people put her in good stead to win a training contract with Miles & Partners.
After two years of rigorous training, and a few more exams, Katie has now successfully completed her training contract with flying colours and qualified as a solicitor.
Katie will join the Miles & Partners matrimonial and family team. She already gained a wealth of experience and knowledge in this sensitive area of law during her training, making her extremely well-equipped to advise and represent clients in meetings and at court.
Katie will help clients with a wide variety of family law matters including divorce, negotiating financial settlements, agreeing arrangements for children, cohabitee and civil partnership disputes, as well as securing injunctions for domestic violence.
