Recent Testimonial: Joe recently approached me on Linkedin about a private client solicitor position he was instructed on. The client he was working with uses Thornton Legal exclusively and it was obvious Joe had an excellent relationship with them. He provided me with an excellent and personable service, taking the time to come and meet with me pre-interview and spending time preparing me for interview including the personalities of the hiring managers which was helpful. I'm delighted to say that I've accepted the position and I'm looking forward to getting on board. Private Client Solicitor
