OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS FOR FALON

Local legal talent continues to find opportunity here at Sarah Bentley Solicitors.

Oswaldtwistle-born Falon Whalen, 22, has joined our team as a paralegal … another key advancement for the practice.

Falon recently achieved a Distinction in Family Law (part of the Legal Practice Course Masters), having earlier attained a First Class Law Degree. A former student at Mount Carmel High School, Accrington and Blackburn Sixth Form College, she studied law at Swansea University and Manchester’s University of Law.

“Earlier this summer our very first appointment, Eve Brelsford, qualified as a solicitor and we will now do all we can to help Falon develop her career here,” said Sarah. “Our policy is to give local youngsters a genuine training opportunity in family law – together with first-hand experience – and I see Falon as a perfect fit for us.”

Falon added: “Family Law appeals to me the most, so to get this chance at a firm with such a strong record and reputation in family law is just amazing. I am determined to take it with both hands.”
