Clients, friends and colleagues hold a Retirement Celebration for Sheila Smith

A retirement party in honour of Sheila Smith, Conveyancing Partner at QualitySolicitors Parkinson Wright was held on the 3rd February 2015 at College Hall, King’s School Worcester. Over 130 colleagues, friends and clients from the past 40 years joined Sheila in celebrating her retirement.

Sheila began her legal career at Kenneth Cooke in Walsall.  After qualifying as a Legal Executive, she completed her CPE becoming a Solicitor in 1987.

Having worked for Humfrys & Symonds in Hereford, she moved to Worcester in the early 1990’s and worked at Linton Connell Smith and Peter Scaiff & Co.  After 5 years at Peter Scaiff & Co, Sheila developed breast cancer and gave up work whilst undergoing treatment for the disease.  Once in remission, Sheila decided to set up her own practice simply called Sheila Smith & Co in 1997. The business expanded and in 2004 Sheila Smith & Co joined Parkinson Wright.

Sheila became Head of the Conveyancing department which she continued to develop before suffering a subdural haematoma resulting in brain surgery in 2007 which resulted in her taking extended leave.  However, never one to let adversity hold her back she returned to work 8 months later. 

After a very successful and fulfilling career Sheila has decided to retire to spend more time with her Husband and Family.  She will be assisting the firm on a consultancy basis in the future.  Sheila says: I have had a very rewarding career and life, despite health issues. Over the years I have helped thousands of people move house and I have met some wonderful people, a lot I enjoy as friends. They have made my life very colourful, fulfilling rewarding and fun.

Cyril Arridge, Managing Partner QualitySolicitors Parkinson Wright says: Sheila was part of our conveyancing department for nearly 11 years and her popularity with both clients and colleagues was always clear to all.  I am delighted that our connection with her will continue.
