Joining Cullimore Dutton has been a really exciting time for me and the right step in my career. Having joined in the middle of the pandemic and also during the Stamp Duty Land Tax holiday, property boom has meant that I was in at the deep end. The support from my colleagues in the conveyancing team and the rest of the firm has been amazing. From day one I was made to feel welcome and valued. The support I have received while studying for my CILEx qualification has been great and I really feel that I can progress in my career whilst at Cullimore Dutton.

Starting any new role always comes with a degree of excitement and nerves, straight away I loved it! I was once more doing the work I enjoyed, I found the challenge of working remotely a real buzz, and most importantly for me, I was part of such a fab and supportive team. They have been amazing and have helped me so much during lockdown. We have daily Zoom meetings and there is always someone at the end of the phone should I need them.

Sarah Cheers, Paralegal, Wills, Trusts & Estates team – Joined us in April 2020

Starting a new job is both exciting and daunting for anyone. However, starting a new job from your living room was an entirely new experience altogether! My first few weeks with Cullimore Dutton seemed to whiz by and I learnt so much in such a short period. I have progressed really quickly and although I only joined as a paralegal in May 2020 I was offered a training contract in April 2021.

Jesca Knott, Trainee Solicitor, Family Law team – Joined us in May 2020

I first walked through the doors of our office in Chester City Centre over 15 years ago. I knew instantly that this was the place for me and where I wanted to pursue my legal career. I joined Cullimore Dutton as a temp, soon progressed to the role of Trainee Solicitor and as my career has progressed, I have held the roles of both Assistant Solicitor and Associate Solicitor.

In February 2020, I took on a new challenge as Head of our Wills, Trusts & Estates team and was honoured to be offered the opportunity to become a Director and part of our new management structure in July 2020, enabling me to come full circle and now be in a position where I am able to share my skills, knowledge and experience with junior members of the team – not bad for someone who started out as a two week temp!

Adele Bebbington-Plant, Director and Head of Wills, Trusts & Estates – Joined us in July 2005

Since I joined Cullimore Dutton I have found it fascinating working alongside solicitors with such considerable experience, and on cases with so many challenging and absorbing legal issues. Most of all, I felt really welcomed by everybody at the firm and the best part about working here is that no two days are ever the same!

Francesca Crank, Legal Assistant, Family Law team – Joined us in January 2021

Starting a new role remotely seemed like a rather daunting prospect, however my nerves very quickly were eased when I realised what a friendly and supportive firm I had joined. The induction process was really well organised, and I was made to feel like part of the team right away. It is exciting to have joined an evolving business that strives to encourage career progression and growth.
