I'm 36 years old and qualified as a solicitor in December 2004, after too many years of studying in London! I have been working within the legal profession since 1997 and began my career at a prestigious firm in Islington, London. My training continued at a medium sized, predominantly private client practice in Brighton. I subsequently moved to a larger, more commercial practice, in Uckfield. I was quickly promoted to head up the firm’s Residential Property Team across its 3 branches.

Sarah Edmunds Legal began on beanbag and bookcase at my home! It has grown and grown ever since! We are now in beautiful and historic offices in the heart of Lewes and I have a brilliant team, all of whom I am very proud.

In my spare time, I enjoy vertical dance, rock climbing, via ferrata, motorbiking, photography, shopping and eating and am an aerial hoop instructor in Lewes!

I have recently moved to Nutley.

My name is Kimberley and I joined Sarah Edmunds Legal in September 2013 as a Conveyancing Executive. I am now a trainee solicitor and am due to qualify as a solicitor next year. 
 
After studying Law for two years at Sussex Downs College, I knew that I wanted to pursue a career in the legal profession. I completed a Law degree at Canterbury Christ Church University where I realised that I wanted to become a Solicitor. After taking a year out to travel, I completed the Legal Practice Course at the University of Law achieving a Distinction. 
 
In my spare time I enjoy trampolining, aerial hoop, horse riding, shopping and socialising with my friends. I enjoy travelling and try to visit as many places as possible.

Trainee Solicitor

I am 24 years old and feel extremely fortunate to have joined such a fantastic firm. I graduated in Law and Criminology from the University of Kent in summer 2011 and am currently studying the LLM Legal Practice Course. I am studying part time, from my home in East Sussex whilst working full time.
 
So what have I been doing for the last two years? I digressed slightly from my legal career to help organise over 100 Weddings and events at a very popular wedding venue in East Sussex! I believe customer service and client care is paramount in any industry, therefore I always strive to provide a great service in whatever industry I work in. I understand that areas of law are particularly stressful for the clients therefore I intend to restore their calm and assist them along the process in any way I can.
 
In my spare time I enjoy aerial hoop and dining out (let's just say I'm not very gifted in the cooking department!), shopping and travel. My Father's career involves a lot of travel around the world so I have been incredibly fortunate enough to sample the sights and culture of many countries with my family. Most recently; Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan and Jamaica!

My name is Rebecca, and I am 21 years old. I have  always wanted to pursue a career in the legal profession and I studied Law at Lancaster University, graduating in 2014.
 
I am happy to have joined Sarah Edmunds Legal in January 2015, moving down from Lancashire to kick start my career in the legal profession. I am due to start the LPC in September 2015 and will be starting my training contract then too. Until then, I have replaced Amy Staples, who has moved back to Wales, as the firm’s office organiser, including managing reception and the office and assisting the team with administrative duties.
 
In my free time I love to play netball, hockey, running, martial arts and Ariel Hoop. I have taken part in some intense sporting events; such as “Tough Mudder” and 10k races for charity. I also love socialising with friends, watching the football and love a great meal out

Huxley
Head of Security and Loyalty Scheme

Huxley can often be found in the office (on a calm day) – he is head of security (and I thought it would be useful to use this intimidating photograph) and head of implementation of a staff and client loyalty scheme… which is progressing extremely slowly despite the apparent enthusiasm.
 
 
 
 

 

Thank You

Huxley
