“I chose to do an apprenticeship as I left college and was not planning on going to university. I have always been interested in all aspects of law and knew that it was what I wanted to do. I was able to further my education in a friendly and diverse office within a motivational team at Freeths and have progressed significantly in all aspects since joining the firm.”
