Junior lawyer scoops top award

A junior lawyer at Timms Solicitors is celebrating after scooping a top award.

Jessica Barnett was recently named Junior Lawyer of the Year at the Derby and District Law Society’s annual awards.

After joining Timms, she worked her way up to a permanent position in the family law team in 2020 – working across the firm’s offices in Derby, Burton, Swadlincote and Ashby.

She has now been accepted onto the Timms Associate Programme as part of her career development.

Fiona Moffat, managing partner at Timms, said: “Jessica is an exceptional solicitor and valued member of the Timms family. We could not be more delighted that she has been recognised in this way.

“During her tenure here, she has worked on several complex cases with care and professionalism that belies her age and has taken on additional duties to help to support organisational improvements in the overall running of the firm.

“Her many other attributes include her willingness to get involved in all aspects of our work including supporting the University of Derby Law School’s mentoring programme, networking events and Timms’ community work.”
