Claire Edwards
Trainee Solicitor

I am a Trainee Solicitor now based in the Birkenhead office. I am currently completing my final seat in the Family department and mainly assist Shirley Bennett and Julie Waring with their matters.

Before joining Morecrofts I completed my Legal Practitioners Course at the University of Law (Leeds). Whilst studying I also worked as a family paralegal in a niche private family law firm dealing with divorce, ancillary relief and private law children matters.

I started at Morecrofts as a family Paralegal in February 2016 and worked primarily for Rachel Burns and Angela Eaton, dealing with public and private law children matters.

I started my training contract at Morecrofts in 2017. My first six months seat was in the family team. I then completed my second seat in Litigation. Most recently I completed my third seat in Private Client assisting Michael Lamb and Vicki Morris with Wills, Probate, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection matters.

I am currently also studying for a Masters in International Law at the University of Lancaster.

In my spare time I enjoy attending beer and food festivals, baking and drinking copious amounts of coffee.
