Melinda Rice has joined mfg Solicitors as a new associate into its Birmingham-based Private Client team.
Melinda joins mfg Solicitors at their offices in the city’s St Paul’s Square, advising clients on everything from administration of estates, to lasting powers of attorney, wills and estate planning.
Her appointment comes as mfg prepares to mark the first anniversary this summer of its merger with historic Birmingham law firm, Pearson Rowe.
Raised in the suburbs of Dallas, Texas, Ms Rice has lived in the UK since 1997 and has 13 years’ experience in the legal profession.
Ms Rice said:
“I am delighted to be joining mfg Solicitors and I’ve been hugely impressed by the services they offer.
“There is a big opportunity here for me to learn from the many experienced lawyers across the firm and to share my own skills and knowledge to ensure we grow further. It’s a really exciting time to be part of mfg.”
Valerie Robinson, partner and head of mfg’s Private Client department said:
“As well as an impressive track record of representing her clients, Melinda brings a great deal of enthusiasm and passion to the firm.
“We are very pleased to welcome her to mfg, particularly at a time of expansion into the growing Birmingham legal market.”
Ms Rice added that she has recently completed a dissertation on digital assets in estates, an area she intends to develop professionally with the firm.
