by Miranda Marshall – Director and Solicitor, August 2016Download
Kieran has lived near Fakenham for most of his life and was brought up in a family who worked almost entirely in different areas of the legal system. Therefore it comes as no surprise that he has been interested in law ever since he was a child.
He achieved 100% in his A-level law exams and went on to study an LLB (Hons) Law Degree at the University of Leicester. He then carried out his Legal Practice Course (Post Graduate Diploma) at Anglia Ruskin University where he achieved a distinction. He completed work experience at a top law firm in Norwich and joined Hayes + Storr in 2017 as a Paralegal. He started his training contract in January 2019 and qualified in December 2020.
Outside of work, his hobbies include playing rugby, going to the gym and visiting Norfolk’s outstanding beaches. He was the captain of the men’s rugby team at the University of Leicester in his final year.
“We have been very appreciative of your kindness and sensitivity as you guided us through what, at times, has been an emotional journey for us both. Not having acted as executors before your knowledge and expertise was invaluable. We particularly valued the clarity of your communications with us and how you took us step by step through the process of carrying out our mother’s wishes.
"Our sincere thanks to you Kieran, for all the professionalism and care with which you assisted us over the last few months since our Mother’s death. We could not have wished for better guidance and support."
