“I am also a member of the Law Society Children Panel, often working with local authorities on issues such as child in need, case conferences and care proceedings, thereby assisting both parents and children with these issues.”

Louise Hill, from Telford, has been awarded a training contract and becomes a trainee solicitor in the department. Louise held a managerial role in customer service after gaining her degree, followed by over a decade gaining experience in criminal law through public service. Outside of the office, Louise is a qualified coach with Newport & District Swimming Club, having been a former county swimming champion in her youth.

Welcoming the new staff members on board, WMB director and head of the family department, Sarah Phillips, commented: “Having been in existence for over 30 years, WMB Law is a well established firm which trades on its reputation and is currently entering an exciting new period through re-branding and refurbishment of its offices. We will also shortly be launching a bespoke new website produced by design company Salop Creative, of Shrewsbury.

“These three new local appointments will help the firm to further grow and develop as we continue our support of local projects for young people, including sponsorship of a boys football team and other events, ensuring that WMB Law remains part of the local community while providing a high level of service to our clients.”
