Sonia Thornton


My Professional Background

I joined Stafford Young Jones in 2007 after completing my A Levels, initially as an Administration Assistant, prior to the firm’s 2019 merger with Attwaters Jameson Hill. Within two years I had been promoted to Legal Secretary and decided that I would train for a legal career. I am now a Paralegal in the firm’s Wills, Trusts and Probate department.


I hold the Level 3 Diploma for Legal Secretaries from the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEX).

I am also an Associate Member of CILEX.


About Me

I live in Kent with my partner and baby son. I enjoy cooking, baking and spending time with my family.
