Rayden Solicitors is delighted to announce that our first full time trainee, Eleanor Mills, has successfully completed her training contract with the firm and has qualified as a Solicitor.  Eleanor has been admitted to the Roll of Solicitors effective 16th September and takes up her position as a Solicitor with Rayden Solicitors with immediate effect.


Eleanor joined the Rayden team as a Paralegal in August 2016, having graduated in Law at the University of Exeter.  It was during her degree at Exeter that Eleanor first studied family law, setting her on the path to her future career.  She began her training contract with Rayden Solicitors in September 2017.

Eleanor has worked across a variety of family law matters during her training with the firm, and is particularly interested in the issues that arise following relationship breakdown, including children matters and divorce and civil partnership dissolution.

Rayden Solicitors Senior Partner Katherine Rayden says, “We are delighted with Eleanor’s progress and congratulate her on qualifying.  Eleanor is the first trainee that we have taken through to qualification, and during the last three years she has shown great commitment to her studies whilst also ably supporting her colleagues with their client work.  She is quick and efficient and is a great asset to the firm.  We are looking forward to her career going from strength to strength with us.”

Eleanor is based in the firm’s St Albans office and will be working across a broad range of family law matters.
