“In the time that both Eamai and Rebecca have been with us they have proved to be very capable young women and I know they will make outstanding solicitors.

“Their empathy for the client is outstanding, they are both tenacious in their approach to their casework which is a key attribute in a lawyer and they are fantastic colleagues.”

Eamai Crowe, from Darkley, Co Armagh attended St Patrick’s High School, Keady before studying Law with Criminology at Ulster University.
