Chesterfield crime solicitor Chloe Wright

Chloe joined VHS Fletchers in January 2022 as a Trainee Solicitor at our Chesterfield office and has now qualified and is employed as an assistant solicitor.

Chloe graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in the summer of 2020 with an undergraduate degree in Law. Chloe then continued her studies at Leeds Beckett University, completing the Legal Practice Course in the spring of 2021 and completed a masters degree in the summer of 2022.

During Chloe’s studies at Sheffield Hallam University, she took on the role as Student Legal Advisor at the Helena Kennedy Prison Clinic, where she provided free legal advice to those individuals detained in prisons across the country. This role provided Chloe with the vital knowledge and experience of managing cases and dealing with various prison law matters including re-categorisation reviews and sentence progression.

During her training, Chloe completed the Police Station Accreditation Qualification to enable her to provide advice and assistance to all clients who are detained by the police, including those requesting the duty solicitor, for the entire range of offences.

Now that Chloe has qualified as a solicitor she will begin to work towards her duty solicitor qualification permitting her to provide such representation at court.  She will continue to provide advice and representation in the police station, as well as representing those charged with offences before the Magistrates’ Court.  Chloe will also continue in her role as a Crown Court litigator.

Outside of work, Chloe enjoys local walks in the Peak District and baking cakes for her friends and family.
