Laura Thompson

Wills & Probate Paralegal



Laura joined Ward & Rider in October 2014 as a Legal Secretary in our Personal Injury Department. Laura spent three months learning key legal skills and developing her practical knowledge before joining our Wills & Probate team in January 2015 as a Paralegal.

Laura completed her LLB Law Degree at the University of Lincoln and, after graduating in September 2013, went on to complete her LPC at the University of Law in Birmingham, graduating with a combined LLM in April 2015.

Since joining Wills & Probate, Laura has primarily acted in advising and preparing Wills and finds great satisfaction in helping and advising clients with something that many people find uncomfortable or difficult to put their minds to. Laura aims to make the process of writing a Will as straight forward as possible and enjoys providing her clients with peace of mind.

Outside of work Laura enjoys socialising with her family and friends, going to music concerts and following various sports.
