I graduated from the University of Sussex in 2018 after achieving my LLB Law degree and joined Barwells as an assistant in the Litigation department, before moving over to the Family Department to start my training contract.
During my time at University, I enjoyed the more personal areas of law such as Family Law, Health Care Law and Ethics and undertook an additional Human Rights module during an International Summer School programme at the University of Sussex. I also volunteered at the Citizens Advice Bureau during my final year of University in order to understand and assist clients at vulnerable stages in their lives. This experience allowed me to develop my client care skills before embarking on a legal career. I have also undertaken legal work experience in London and Gibraltar.
After successfully passing the SQE, I am now a Solicitor within the Family department. I am able to advise on a wide range of family disputes including divorce, the resolution of financial matters upon divorce, separation agreements, pre and post nuptial agreements, non-molestation orders and resolving any disputes over children of the family. I am primarily based in our Eastbourne office, but also travel to our Hailsham office.
In my spare time, Kayleigh enjoys going to concerts, socialising with friends, reading and going for walks.
