Meet Chloe, Our Newly Qualified Solicitor Specialising in Family and Matrimonial Law
Vines Legal is delighted to announce that our talented former paralegal Chloe Payne is now a qualified Solicitor! Specialising in Family and Matrimonial Law, Chloe became fully qualified in February 2021, after completing her final training and exams online during lockdown.
Chloe started her legal career back in 2012, embarking on a four-year Law degree at the University of Leeds that took her abroad to Sweden for a year. After achieving a First-Class Honours Degree, Chloe began working as a paralegal with Vines Legal in 2017, which gave her an in depth, working knowledge of family law. Chloe then won a scholarship to complete the Legal Practice Course at the University of Sheffield. She then completed her Training Contract with Vines Legal and achieved her academic goal of becoming a fully qualified, practicing Solicitor.
Chloe’s academic achievements and already significant working experience mean that she’s extremely skilled and proficient, and now taking on cases of her own. Speaking of her achievements, Chloe said: “It was so useful being able to work alongside my studies and see how legal practice works in real life. You can learn a lot from books and seminars, but the hands-on experience has been invaluable to me.
I very much enjoyed being given more responsibility as I progressed, which allowed me to develop my skills and gain confidence. My academic studies and the practical experience have given me the best possible grounding for my future career.”
Chloe’s last academic hurdle came during the pandemic with her Professional Skills Course. “Of course, this all had to be carried out online” says Chloe. “Luckily it was all very well done, with great technology in place to ensure that we got the training we needed. It was a fantastic feeling to qualify, but unfortunately I couldn’t celebrate properly as the whole of the UK was locked down!”
Chloe is now looking to the future and keen to really get stuck into her career at Vines Legal. “Now that I’m fully qualified, the thing I’m most looking forward to is developing cases in my own right and building up my own client base. Vines Legal is a great place to work; the atmosphere is so friendly, and we do a great job of supporting our clients with a professional, yet empathetic service. I’m really excited about progressing within the firm.”
When asked what motivates Chloe to be so dedicated to family law she says: “When we see clients at the start of the process, they’re often facing a number of challenges. But with our legal advice and emotional support, they emerge from the other end in a far, far, better place. It’s incredibly rewarding to see this, and a privilege to be able to help people overcome what are often tough situations.”
