A leading Sunderland law firm has expanded its family team with the appointment of a new solicitor.

Megan Nelson joined the award-winning Richard Reed Solicitors two years ago as a paralegal before taking up a training contract and has now recently successfully qualified as a solicitor.

She said: “As soon as I graduated from law school, I came to work at Richard Reed Solicitors as a paralegal.

“I was lucky enough to get a training contract which has allowed me to work towards becoming a fully qualified solicitor.”

Megan will now be a fully fledged member of the Family Law team, working on a range of cases including divorce, private children law, care proceedings and domestic violence issues.

“It’s a great opportunity to continue to work with a brilliant team and I can’t wait for the new challenge,” she said.

Sarah Reid, managing director of Richard Reed at Frederick Street, Sunderland said the new solicitor was a huge asset.

She said: “Megan has become an important part of the Richard Reed family over the past two years and we’re delighted that she has successfully completed her training and will become a valuable part of our family law team.”
