Beth McGovern

What I do

I joined Smith Partnership in 2012 working as a Paralegal in the Crime Department in Leicester. Prior to this I dealt with mental health cases as part of HM Courts and Tribunals Service.

I am a graduate of Combined Social Sciences at The University of Lincoln, though I went on to complete my Graduate Diploma in Law and later the Legal Practice Course at Nottingham Law School.

I carried out my training contract with the firm and qualified as a solicitor in July 2017. I appear regularly at the Magistrates’ Court and specialise in advising clients in relation to matters of serious crime and regulatory offences.

I achieved Duty Solicitor status in June 2019 and more recently promoted to Associate in January 2023.

Friendly, determined and definitely not a creator of any baked goods!

Travelling the world and visiting new countries.  

Beth, I would also like to take this opportunity to say that I have been in the financial services sector for 36 years & have never had so quick & efficient service from a solicitor or practice, you are a credit to your company & profession. Thank you for being so efficient.

Thank you for time and co-operation in this matter by the way. You are a credit to your firm.
