"I joined Anthony Collins Solicitors in 2014 as a legal assistant in the Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence team. It soon became clear to me that ACS takes a different approach to legal work by being a purpose-driven law firm.

When the time came to apply for a training contract, I immediately knew that I wanted to stay with ACS. I had always wanted to become a solicitor to help those who needed it most, and this fits with the ACS purpose of improving lives, communities and societies.

Since starting my training contract, I have undertaken seats in Construction Litigation and Employment. I have been given good-quality work and have been afforded a high level of responsibility, while never feeling overwhelmed. Everyone around me is always happy to help with any questions I may have, and I feel that others genuinely want to see me succeed and develop my skills. I have had the opportunity to work with people who are leaders in their fields and who are passionate about their work. I soon came to learn that their enthusiasm is contagious.

Everyone at ACS is encouraged to fundraise and volunteer for charity. As trainees, we are currently trying to raise £2018 during 2018 for our chosen charity, which so far has involved undertaking a Rough Runner and organising firm social events. Not only have we raised money for charity, it has also helped the trainees to work as a team and have fun."
