Key information about Emily
- Emily qualified as a solicitor in 2009. The time has flown and to qualify as a solicitor is still her proudest achievement. Emily studied her law degree at the University of Liverpool, before completing Law School at the College of Law in Christleton, Chester. Emily has always been encouraged to further her education, and spurred on by ‘Nanna Sam’ she completed a Masters Degree in Legal Practice at the University of Law in 2014.
- Emily never strayed far from her roots in North Wales, and North Wales was the perfect home for Celtic Law Ltd in 2017. Emily’s clients are located all over England and Wales, so don’t worry if you are not on the doorstep.
- Emily first qualified into General Practice and spent the first 10 years of her career helping clients with pretty much any area of law. Emily will now tell you that she isn’t nasty enough to do the Court work, and when Celtic Law was established in 2017 she decided to focus on the areas of law she really enjoyed – which is Wills. Emily has now grown the firm into one which specialises in Wills & Trusts, Bereavement Services and Lasting Power of Attorney. Emily also helps business owners when considering their Wills and Business Power of Attorneys and particularly enjoys working with new company set ups.
- When Celtic Law was established, Emily was keen to make sure that clients don’t feel nervous about approaching their solicitor. Being friendly and approachable is key to making clients feel comfy and it ensures that conversations can be open and comfortable, even when the subject matter is difficult. Emily is also passionate that the business makes a positive impact on the community it serves and the environment, which is why Celtic Law’s Social Responsibility Policy and Green Thinking Plan features so heavily in the business plan.
- Emily is a trustee and director with a local charity, NEWCIS, which supports unpaid carers. This is rewarding thing to do and is a positive way of using her experience to give back. Emily continues to learn so much from doing it, both in terms of how a good charity or business is run – but more importantly about the needs of carers which really helps client. In addition, Emily is also on the committee of the Cheshire and North Wales Law Society and was President for 2022-2023.
- Outside of Celtic Law, Emily is a keen runner who loves exploring the scenery of North Wales with her pug, Roxie (who you will often find helping out at our offices in Mold!) She is also a campervan owner – and loves nothing more than to talk about it, so if you too have a van or like camping – Emily would love to hear about it!
