The appointments have come as CJCH expands the services of its Blackwood office with Mental Health and Court of Protection teams, and Wills and Probate now offered.

The well-established Blackwood office, which was integrated into CJCH Solicitors in 2017 when the firm took over Howard Patchell and Co, will benefit from the addition of the two new and experienced solicitors, as well as a new trainee solicitor, taking the team to 13 members.

CJCH Managing Partner, Tim Hartland, said: “We are thrilled to welcome both Abbi and Alexis to the CJCH team. They join a strong existing team and their expertise and experience will undoubtedly be invaluable to our Blackwood Office as we look to expand our offering to the local community.”

On her appointment, Abbi said: “I am so pleased to have joined CJCH at such a progressive and exciting time for the firm and to be a part of the service expansion at Blackwood.”

Alexis adds: “Joining a leading firm at a time of huge growth is a very exciting prospect. The firm has taken a close look at the needs of the Blackwood community and I am looking forward to being a part of the service expansion.”
