We are delighted to share our latest news that Laura Pugh (still known to some by her maiden name of Laura Newnes) has joined our growing team at McKenzie Law Solicitors. Laura takes up a senior position as a Legal Manager based at our Shrewsbury office to deal with Wills, Trusts, Probate, Powers of Attorney, Court of Protection matters, older client issues and property work including residential conveyancing.
Laura is very experienced in her practice area and is held in high regard by fellow professionals, colleagues and clients alike. She has acted for many local clients over the last 7 years and also for those from further afield who have been beneficiaries of estates that she has dealt with, and people recommended to her by her local clients. Laura trained initially with John Garrard at Garrards Solicitors, Shrewsbury.
Laura and Vicki McKenzie previously worked together for 4 years at Wace Morgan in Shrewsbury until Vicki joined Niels at McKenzie Law in 2012.
In her career to date Laura has dealt with many and varied matters including complex Probate cases, many involving farms and high value estates, and all involving bereaved people and families. She has great empathy with her clients and has provided invaluable support to many older clients who have been faced with the difficulty of giving up their own homes and going into care. Many a client has been heard to say to her ‘I don’t know what I would do without you’.
Laura grew up in Dorrington and went to school in Dorrington and Church Stretton before attending Shrewsbury Sixth Form College. She followed this with the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives Professional Higher Diploma in Law –– she is a true Shropshire girl.
These are very exciting times at McKenzie Law, we are fortunate to already know Laura very well and to know that she will be a great asset to our team and our clients.
