Theresa Holden LL.B, LL.M
I am a trainee solicitor at Olives and due to qualify in September 2020 after completing my LPC at the University of Law (Moorgate).
My route to becoming a solicitor has been a long and varied one, but my whole career since leaving University over 20 years ago has been based in the legal sector.
I have worked as a Legal Clerk, Junior and Senior Paralegal both in solicitor’s offices and Barristers Chamber’s and even ran my own Paralegal company practicing in the realms of Criminal, Civil, Housing, Private Cab Licensing and Private Client Law, but I have now focused predominately on Matrimonial, Criminal and Civil Law. I am very honoured to be part of Olives, as I was lucky enough to join the team from the Firm’s inception in 2016.
