Bernice was promoted to Associate in May 2019.

When time allows, Bernice enjoys spending time with her young family, travelling and baking.
The service from Ellisons is ‘highly attentive and competent’ and clients describe Robert Gair (Head of Personal Injury) [leading individual] and Bernice Spurgeon as ‘diligent, bright and careful’.
No matter how busy she is, she always has time for me and my queries, including on her days off! Over the past few years she has not just become my solicitor but someone I can turn to for sound advice and a keen ear. She is always willing to listen and help. Although I have no other experience with solicitors she brings a very warm, approachable yet professional approach to her work. She is an absolute credit to your company and a great ambassador. Even though we are not yet at the finish line on my case it has been an absolute pleasure to deal with Bernice."
Thank you. What a result. We are so pleased. What an excellent all-round service. Many thanks once again.
I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work and efforts, for never giving up on me, like I nearly did myself on three occasions. Your understanding, guidance and of course your experience thought I would win. Ellisons are our family Solicitors. The service is always excellent and I would recommend the company and certainly you, Bernice to anyone. Thank you for everything. You were not just my Solicitor but you became a penfriend to me. Informing, guiding and encouraging me every step of the way.
Bernice was amazing, very supportive and sympathetic whilst remaining very professional. Her level of empathy was reassuring. From the outset I was treated with compassion and understanding, all aspects of the process were explained clearly, there was always someone available to answer questions or offer support.
