An achievement to be proud of
Katy-Anne Atkinson joined Winn Solicitors in 2012 as Legal Clerk and secured a training contract with the company in 2013.
The firm are very pleased to announce that Katy-Anne has now qualified as Solicitor.
Qualifying from Northumbria University with an LLB(Hons) Exempting Degree in 2010, Katy-Anne has wanted to work within the legal profession since her school days and has previously worked as a paralegal in North Tyneside.
We are delighted that Katy-Anne will be using her experience and skills to work on more complex personal injury claims.
“I decided I wanted a career in law when I was about 15 after representing my school in a mock trial competition. It gave me a real buzz that I was able to be someone’s voice and argue their case on their behalf,” said Katy-Anne, who lives in Ashington.
“I was attracted to Winns given their stature within the NE, not only in relation to servicing clients but also the investment in their staff. After a lot of ups and downs, the hard work has finally paid off and I am proud of my achievement of becoming a qualified Solicitor. Onwards and upwards!”
Jo Amos, Winn Solicitors Associate Director adds: “I would like to congratulate Katy-Anne on her achievement and wish her every success. It is rewarding to see employees developing their careers within the company and we look forward to offering more training contracts to staff in the future.”
