TWO trainees are celebrating after qualifying as solicitors in roles that support clients in planning their affairs.

The duo have completed their training with BHP Law in Darlington and Durham and are ready to meet clients across the firm’s regional network of offices.

Law represents a second career for mother of four Melanie Morley, who worked in the construction, finance and charities sectors prior to going to Northumbria University to study law. She followed this up with a masters in political and legal theory at York University.

Holly Naylor started her career in the family team at BHP Law as a paralegal before gaining experience with the personal injury team, managing road traffic, public and employers’ liability cases and assisting with medical negligence work.
