New Associate Solicitor joins Corbett Le Quesne

Wednesday 17 May 2023

Jamie-Lee Morgan has joined family law firm Corbett Le Quesne as an Associate Solicitor.

Ms Morgan joined the firm shortly before being sworn in as a Jersey Solicitor, also known as an Écrivain in Jersey.

As a Solicitor, Ms Morgan can appear before the Family Court in all areas of family law. She hopes to be sworn in as an Advocate following successful completion of the Solicitors Qualifying Examination in England and Wales, which she is currently undertaking.

Before joining Corbett Le Quesne, Ms Morgan worked at two other local firms and, in 2021, moved to Cumbria where she gained invaluable experience at one of the largest law firms in the North of England.

She was fortunate enough to be present for the introduction of the new no-fault divorce law in England and Wales and witness its positive effect on encouraging an amicable approach to divorce as opposed to the ‘blame game’ approach that still exists in Jersey law. Ms Morgan is extremely keen for a similar reform to take place in Jersey divorce law.

Ms Morgan has spent almost 10 years working in the area of family law. She is also a member of Resolution which means that she is committed to promoting a constructive approach to family issues.

Advocate Corbett said: "I first recruited Jamie-Lee as a Receptionist in 2011 when I was a partner at another law firm. Nick Le Quesne joined and we all worked together for many years. I am so happy that Jamie-Lee is able to join us, it feels like the team is back together!"

Advocate Le Quesne added: "Before taking her Jersey exams, Jamie-Lee gained a paralegal qualification with the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives and went on to obtain a degree in Law from Nottingham Trent University, all whilst working full-time. She is now studying towards qualifying as an English Solicitor which shows how hard working and determined Jamie-Lee is."
