Alicia A. Speed LL.B LL.M
Alicia joined Mortons in June 2018 after graduating from the University of Sunderland following completion of her Law Degree and Legal Practice Course combined with a Masters of Law.
Alicia joined the firm as a Paralegal in our Family Department, and advises clients in private law disputes, both in matrimonial and children matters. Alicia also advises and attends PLO meetings with clients under legal aid.
Alicia is based at our Sunderland Office, and also assists the other fee earners in the Family Department with a variety of matters, such as financial matters, pre-nuptial agreements, change of name deeds, harassment issues and public law children matters.
Alicia has a keen interest in Family Law and completed her Masters of Law in the research of the proposed implementation of ‘no-fault’ divorce in the UK. This research looked at how the implementation of ‘no-fault’ divorce into the current system would affect those in practice, and whether this would be beneficial to clients seeking a divorce where neither party wishes to apportion blame to the other.
