What our Contentious Probate Candidates and Clients say

“Kelly recently helped us recruit into our contentious probate department. It is a niche field and a difficult one to recruit into but Kelly made the process simple and did a fantastic job. I would highly recommend.” 

Head of Contentious Probate and Private Client at Thornton Jones 

 

“Kelly was absolutely fantastic! When I approached her, I was at a juncture in my career. I was coming off maternity leave and the role I wanted simply didn't exist. Kelly worked with me and helped me gain a better understanding of what I truly wanted in a role.  

Her most impressive feat, though? That role I didn't think existed... Kelly found it and at a firm which was the perfect fit. And she did all this within a month! I'm so grateful to Kelly and cannot recommend her highly enough. Without her knowledge and insight of the market, I wouldn't have the role I'm in now - and she was a pleasure to deal with the whole way through. Thank you, Kelly!”
