He then carried out his Legal Practice Course (Post Graduate Diploma) at Anglia Ruskin University where he achieved a distinction.

“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."
