Local Solicitors, Veitch Penny, of Exeter and Crediton, are celebrating after further strengthening their Personal Injury Department with the addition of two solicitors.
Catherine Rosewell and Frances Macdonald both worked as Legal Executives within Veitch Penny, ensuring that accident victims receive the maximum compensation they deserve. Following two years of extensive training, they have both been admitted to the Law Society as Solicitors.
The past two years have been extremely busy for both women; as they have continued working full time looking after their existing clients, whilst travelling to London to develop their specialist areas and expertise.
Catherine Rosewell, who has worked for Veitch Penny for over 10 years, first joining as a legal secretary said: “Upon becoming a Legal Executive, I decided I wanted to continue my studies to broaden my knowledge, but more importantly, I wanted to be able to offer a higher level of understanding and services to my clients”
Frances Macdonald said: “I was very pleased to qualify. The courses I took have really helped me develop my legal skills and enabled me to give better client care. I am pleased to have also had the opportunity to learn about more diverse areas of law.”
Both Catherine and Frances continue their careers in Personal Injury, bringing fresh knowledge and specialisms to an already experienced team, further strengthening the department with their interests in Equestrian and Agricultural claims.
Michael Penny, Head of the Personal Injury Department, is “proud of the girls achievement” and believes it shows “real passion and dedication to the law and their clients” to have spent the time developing their skills, he added that he was “proud that Veitch Penny was able to support them during this time.”
Veitch Penny is considered a “Leader in the Field of Personal Injury”*, and also specialises in wills, probate, conveyancing, and tax advice for members of the general public, as well as actively working with local businesses and employers. * The Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession 2004-2010.
