Ellie joined JMK Solicitors in September 2019 as a member of the JMK Graduate Programme and in October 2023 she became fully qualified as a Solicitor.
Ellie is part of our Damage Only team, dealing with cases that do not involve bodily injury, but which can be complex and challenging. These cases involve matters of liability, credit hire, repair, property damage, and all items of special loss.
Ellie enjoys working for JMK Solicitors as the team treats each client with respect and compassion through a vulnerable time in their lives.
