What our Trainees say:

“I was attracted by the firm’s excellent reputation within the local area and friendly approach. The firm was able to offer trainees the chance to gain experience in a large number of departments. Additionally the level of support and opportunity to progress within the firm were apparent. As a trainee I am involved in a variety of matters and have a varied case load. The firm’s open door policy and approachable atmosphere provides for an ideal training environment with a good balance between support and responsibility” Clair Phillips, Solicitor.

“Ellis Jones stood out to me as a forward thinking firm in the local area. I had got to know some of the younger solicitors through the Junior Lawyers Division whilst studying for my LPC in Bournemouth and was attracted to the variety of opportunities and sense of camaraderie offered. I have been given a varied workload in each department and encouraged to take on more responsibility as my seats progress. I have felt very welcomed into each department.” Annie James, Trainee Solicitor.
