Paralegal duo appointed to strengthen team

Two new paralegals have been appointed to join the growing team at Evans Hayes Burnell.

India Beavan and Sean Gravell will be working within the criminal defence team to provide additional support on a range of cases.

India has more than five years’ experience in legal roles having previously worked for Millennium Group as Appeals & Litigation Manager before joining Gomer Williams & Co as a Civil Litigation Paralegal. Alongside her work at Evans Hayes Burnell, India is also studying part time for the LPC and Advanced Drafting LLM at Swansea University.

This will be Sean’s first legal role since graduating from the University of Liverpool in 2019. Having completed A-levels at Carmarthenshire College in Llanelli, Sean has gone on to complete a law degree and is taking the first steps into a legal career.

Both India and Sean are working towards the Police Station Representatives Accreditation Scheme (PSRAS) which will allow them provide advice and assistance at police stations on Legal Aid cases.

On their appointment, director, Andrew Evans, comments: “We are delighted to welcome India and Sean to the team. We are going through a period of sustained growth and their appointments will help to strengthen the team and allow us to take on more criminal defence work.

“As well as having impressive qualifications and experience, both India and Sean are ambitious legal professionals and we are excited to nurture their talents and help them to achieve further accolades, starting with their PSRAS accreditations. They have made a flying start since joining the team in late 2019 and we look forward to supporting them to reach their full potentials.”
