Ellie Hirst, a trainee solicitor specialising in Wills, Powers of Attorney and Probate at Chadwick Lawrence Solicitors LLP, has been named Trainee Solicitor of the Year category at the Yorkshire Legal Awards.
The award win is a testament to the excellent standard of work Ellie has maintained whilst training at Chadwick Lawrence. Ellie joined the firm in May 2019 and has just qualified as a Solicitor this month, which makes the award win a double achievement for her career.

Ellie Hirst said: “I am over the moon to win this award. It means a lot to achieve an accolade such as this, so early in my legal career. I have learnt so much whilst being at Chadwick Lawrence and look forward to developing my career further.”
Neil Wilson, managing partner at Chadwick Lawrence, said: “We are so proud of Ellie for this incredible achievement. She has been a shining star since joining the team and this award win proves how valued she is in the team.
“We look forward to seeing Ellie’s career development at Chadwick Lawrence and know she will continue her fantastic work within the Wills and Probate team.”
