Lorna Walker, new partner at GLC said: “‘I have always felt very privileged to do the work I do. I had always admired the work Mike and Govan Law Centre has done”.
“I started working at Govan Law Centre in September 2013 as the senior solicitor for the Prevention of Homeless Team. This involved going to outreach hubs across Glasgow to enable us to engage with more people facing homelessness. I always felt very privileged to be able to assist people facing these challenges.”
She added: “I was on maternity leave when Mike asked me to be a partner at Govan Law Centre. I was delighted as this had always been an ambition of mine. I have always felt very proud to be part of the team at Govan Law Centre as we have such a strong team of solicitors, experienced caseworkers and money, debt and welfare rights advisors.”
