Sophie Kearney
Trainee Solicitor - Family Law

I am a Trainee Solicitor based in the Family Team in the City Centre office. I assist Family Partner Rachel Burns with a wide range of children matters, including cases involving Child Arrangements, Care Proceedings, Adoption and Domestic Abuse.

I have been with Morecrofts since 2017 when I joined as a Family Paralegal. I love working in the Morecrofts Family Team, as it is a supportive and knowledgeable team who are truly passionate about access to justice.

Prior to moving to Liverpool I studied at Nottingham Trent University where I achieved a 1st Class Law LLB. I have recently graduated my LPC and Masters Degree in Law.

Outside of work, I am a member of the Law Society’s Merseyside Women Lawyers Division committee, where I am proud to be the Education Co-ordinator for 2019-2020.

I am passionate about music and art, and in my free time I attend lots of local music concerts, festivals and art exhibitions.
