Charlotte Newman is a solicitor in our Leeds office.
She completed her LPC in 2014 and received distinctions in all subjects. In 2013, she graduated from Leeds University with a first class honour degree in law.
During her final year of university, she was diagnosed with cancer. Since being in remission, she was appointed as an ambassador for the Teenage Cancer Trust. As the public face of the Trust, she was presented with several great opportunities, one of which was speaking to an audience of over 5000 per night at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
The role also took on an educational platform, as she has spoken in schools around Leeds about her experience.
Charlotte is an avid fundraiser, and although most of her efforts are on behalf of the Teenage Cancer Trust, she also speaks at events for other charities all over the country. Consequently, she was voted ‘Female Personality of the Year’ at a local award ceremony, and has also been nominated for the Yorkshire Young Achiever award.
When she’s not working on her legal and charitable endeavours, Charlotte enjoys dining out, spending time with loved ones, socialising with friends and loves to write poetry.
Former clients say:
‘Charlotte is a professional and compassionate Solicitor who I would happily recommend to all of my friends, family and work colleagues. Charlotte had a straightforward and no nonsense approach to dealing with my divorce but also listened to all of my concerns and wishes and she gave me the best possible legal advice where needed. Charlotte’s determination to get the best possible outcome for me and my family was shown in all of her actions throughout my divorce proceedings and I cant thank her enough.’ – Former divorce client
