Congratulations Nicola on becoming a Solicitor

Congratulations to Nicola Sharp who was admitted as a Solicitor of the Senior Courts of England and Wales on 17th December 2018.


Nicola was admitted to the Roll of Solicitors on Monday after almost three years with the firm. Nicola joined Mortons in April 2016 as a Paralegal having undertaken her law degree at the University of Sunderland and the LPC at Northumbria University. Thanks to her hard work and dedication, Mortons were pleased to be able to offer her a Training Contract in June 2017. Nicola continued to flourish as a Trainee and was recently awarded the William Arthur Hutton Prize for 2018 which recognises excellence in Trainee Solicitors within the Tees Valley Law Society and Sunderland Law Society areas.

Nicola is now looking forward to the next chapter in her career with Mortons who have offered her a full-time position as a Solicitor in their Conveyancing Department. She would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Mortons for their continued help and support throughout her time at the firm so far.

Congratulations to Mortons Law Prize 2018 Winner

We would like to congratulate Tasha Polley on winning the Mortons Law Prize this year for her outstanding achievement in Law after graduating from the University of Sunderland with a First Class degree.  

Tasha, from Ballywalter in County Down, says she has dreamed of a career in law since spending her work experience alongside a barrister in Northern Ireland as a teenager. 

Tasha says that winning the Mortons Law Prize came as a huge surprise, “It shows that hard work does pay off,” she adds, “and has definitely confirmed that I made the right choice in choosing to study my degree in Sunderland.”
