Sophia Wright


Wills, Tax & Estate Administration; Dispute Resolution

Sophia joined Girlings as a Paralegal in our Wills, Tax & Estate Administration Department in April 2023. She is based in our Ashford office.

From January 2024, Sophia has divided her time between Wills, Tax & Estate Administration (Mondays and Fridays) and Dispute Resolution (Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays).

Sophia worked in horticultural publishing before a career change to law. She then worked in a firm that specialises in Private Client work prior to joining Girlings.

Sophia continues to work towards qualification via the Solicitors Qualifying Exam route. This process includes completing her Masters in Legal Practice at the University of Law and accruing qualifying work experience here at Girlings.

Sophia particularly enjoys helping clients to protect their interests in what can sometimes be quite challenging situations. Her commitment to an empathetic approach is also reflected in her status as a Dementia Friend.

Outside of work, Sophia enjoys spending as much time as possible exploring the outdoors with her husband and son. She is a lifetime member of the National Trust.
