Jessica Owen joined GHP Legal in September 2023 as a Paralegal working in the civil litigation and commercial property departments at our Wrexham head office. In December 2023 she embarked upon a training contract with us that will lead to her qualifying as a Solicitor in 2025. As a trainee solicitor Jessica is gaining experience assisting our solicitors in a variety of different areas of law.
Having had a keen interest in the legal profession from an early age, Jessica studied Law and Criminal Justice at Liverpool John Moores University where she attained a 2:1 degree. She then went on to study the Legal Practice Course with Masters of Law (LLM LPC), in which she gained a merit. Alongside her studies she volunteered at the Liverpool John Moores University Legal Advice Centre, which takes on pro bono cases and provides free legal advice, where she assisted in the areas of Family Law and Immigration.
Jessica got her first legal job at a law firm in Chester whilst still completing her final dissertation. As a paralegal in the commercial property department there, she assisted on files including Sales, Purchases, Legal Charges, Leases etc.
Originally from Wrexham, Jessica moved back to her home town after finishing university. In her spare time, she enjoys going on walks with her partner, particularly in Eryri National Park (Snowdonia), and spending time with family and friends. When time permits, she also enjoys travelling to new places.
