The same year, she joined Russell & Russell on a training contract, and was admitted as a Solicitor in 2009.

"Louise was not only very professional, but also personable in all dealings with regards to the requests. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Russell & Russell and in particular Louise, who I found to be warm and friendly in the way she presented the facts surroundings my will. I feel she gave me great advice and guidance..."
"Russell & Russell have recently concluded a wide-ranging family distribution of a late relative’s estate. The staff at R&R kept us informed, were courteous and explained matters in plain English. Their presentation of documents that needed signature was always explained and were happy to use email for my queries and general correspondence. I am confident in recommending their services in all such matters."
