Jordan enjoys working as part of a team that puts client service to the forefront, treating each case in an individual manner.

Why did you choose the apprentice programme at JMK?

I joined JMK Solicitors in September 2019 as part of the graduate programme. I then obtained an apprenticeship in October 2021. I chose the JMK apprentice programme due to the modern nature of the firm and the opportunities that were available to gain experience.

What have you learnt?

Since joining the programme, I have worked in various departments which has helped me to gain valuable experience at the start of my legal career. As an apprentice you work closely with other legal advisors in order to provide support to clients. I have learnt how to run a file, negotiate, analyse and how to get the best results for clients.

I have also been well trained in terms of personal injury and damage only cases and have learnt how to use a modern case management system.

Benefits to the apprentice programme at JMK?

There are many benefits to the apprentice programme, one being the opportunity to work alongside experienced solicitors and legal advisors. I also gained valuable experience at court and extensive training in many areas. JMK also offers private healthcare, gym membership, and the flexibility to work from home.

What would you want a law student to know about working at JMK?

I would recommend applying to the JMK apprentice programme as you will get the chance to kickstart your legal career in a modern, progressive and successful law firm which will give you every opportunity to progress and provide you with invaluable experience as you begin your legal career.

How would you describe the culture at JMK

The culture at JMK Solicitors is not like a traditional law firm. Everyone is treated equally. You get to work with a great team and every colleague is always willing to help and support you. JMK is different because they care about each member of staff and there are many employee benefits.
