Yvonne

Yvonne is an Employment Law Consultant at Truth Legal and joined the team in 2019.

Yvonne studied law at Newcastle University and qualified as a solicitor in 2003 having trained at a Yorkshire firm. She has specialised in employment law since that time.

In 2004 Yvonne relocated back to the North East where she has worked in large regional firms and a niche employment practice offering legal advice and representation to a wide range of clients, both large and small, from businesses to individuals and HR specialists.

Now working as an Employment Law Consultant, Yvonne is delighted to re-establish her Yorkshire roots with Truth Legal. Yvonne also writes articles, training and seminars on employment law issues.

Yvonne is mum to 2 children and a bouncy labrador. She is on the committee of her local WI, enjoys baking, reading, rare trips to the cinema and theatre, and striding out on the moors with her four-legged friend.
