I just wanted to say a quick thank you to Joe at Thornton Legal for being supportive through my job search and helping me secure a ligation solicitor at a firm that's an ideal fit. I've only ever worked for one firm so moving on wasn't a decision I took lightly, but I felt it was right time to move my career on to the next stage. Joe worked hard on my behalf, and it's obvious he has a good grasp on the Yorkshire legal market. Thornton Legal comes highly recommended by me!
