Speaking on her appointment Pauline Hodgson said: “I am incredibly excited to join the Ellisons team. The firm has an incredible reputation and provides services to clients across a whole host of areas with a range of specialisms which makes it an exciting place to work. It has been a busy start to the year and I’m looking forward to hitting the ground running to continue providing the second-to-none client service that Ellisons is known for.

However, I am already enjoying being back at work and having contact with clients and colleagues, albeit remotely at the moment. The family department have a strong presence in Tendring and I am really looking forward to taking over the mantel left following Nicky leaving. The family law team at Ellisons is one of the best in the business and coming back to lead the team in Tendring fills me with excitement.”

Over the last 12 months, the Tendring team has gone from strength to strength guiding their clients through a difficult period and I know that Pauline and MaryCarmel will continue with this excellent work.

Pauline brings with her a wealth of experience and expertise gained from many years in the industry and I have no doubt she will be an asset to the team.
