Gael Phillips

Trainee Solicitor

david gray solicitors Gael Phillips

I am a trainee solicitor working in the family department.

As part of my training contract I have gained experience in civil litigation, housing, conveyancing and wills and probate.

Prior to commencing my training contract I worked in the family department for over 2 years and gained experience in a number of areas of family law including pre-proceedings child protection, care proceedings, domestic abuse, divorce and finance and private children matters. 

I have now re-joined the family department for my fourth and final seat. I hope to practice family law on qualification in March 2018.

I understand the people I advise often need to tell me highly sensitive and upsetting information and I will always try to take an understanding and supportive approach.

I am organised, pay attention to detail and work hard to keep my clients informed. I try to meet the individual needs of each of my clients and provide them with all options available to them, helping them reach a decision that best meets their needs and those of their loved ones.

I graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University in 2012 achieving First Class Honours. I then went on to complete the Legal Practice Course at BPP Leeds and achieved a Distinction.
