Elle Brooks

Solicitor

Elle joined Samuels Solicitors in March 2014 as the Office Assistant, but quickly displayed the ability and desire to take on a different role. 

She became personal assistant to the Senior Partner, Jan Samuel, carrying out a range of secretarial and paralegal work as well as providing secretarial cover for other fee earners in the firm, during which time, she started studying for a law degree.

Elle achieved a First in her Bachelor of Laws (Honours) Degree with the Open University, and a distinction on her Legal Practice Course. She completed her training contract here at Samuels in Barnstaple at the end of October 2019.

Since starting work at Samuels, Elle has dealt with a wide range of litigation work, including professional negligence and inheritance disputes.

Elle is currently working in commercial property, but she will ultimately specialise in corporate and commercial litigation, sales and acquisitions.

In her spare time, Elle is mostly busy running around after her little boy and Arnie the dog but come the evening, she enjoys putting her feet up with a hot coffee (or a gin or two!)

Her usual working days are Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
