Kerry Woollason Close
I am an experienced Solicitor and attend the Magistrates' Court and Police Station almost daily, representing clients for a wide range of matters, from motoring offences through to serious crime, including rape, fraud, drug conspiracies and murder.
I am passionate about my work and looking after clients, and was the first Solicitor in Lincolnshire to successfully oppose the making of a Domestic Violence Prevention Order.
I am also a member of The Law Society's Criminal Litigation Accreditation Scheme, and undertake Duty Solicitor work both at the Magistgrates' Court and Police Station.
I read Law as a mature student at the University of Lincoln and obtained an Upper Second Class Honours degree. From there, I attended the College of Law in York where I obtained a Post Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice. Shortly after obtaining a training contract with a local firm in Lincoln, I managed a caseload for the Crown Court Department and completed my qualification to become a Police Station Representative.
On becoming a fully qualified Solicitor, I moved to Hull where I gained experience very quickly, handling a very busy caseload of heavyweight crime very early on in my career, and went on to obtain my Duty Solicitor qualification in less than 12 months of qualifying. I eventually returned home to Lincoln and have continued to build a career in Criminal Defence work.
I am well regarded by both clients and professionals for my determined attitude towards obtaining excellent results for my clients.
