Our two directors, Philippa Curran and Jane Gale both started working at odonnells on the same day in July 1998. Staff helped them celebrate their 20 year anniversary, with a meal at Angelos restaurant, on the evening of Friday 6th July 2018.

Following the retirement of John O’Donnell, at the end of 2016, Jane and Philippa have shared responsibility for managing odonnells. They both also continue to cover busy caseloads. Neither can quite believe how quickly the years have flown by.

They have seen many changes in the last 20 years.

Jane has had to stop “being a dinosaur,” and get to grips with use of a networked computer system, and learn how to send emails. Philippa has overseen the development of a busy Court of Protection team, and somehow managed to always be available to the rest of her team and her clients, whilst also being mum to her two boys, now aged 10 and 11.

We take this opportunity of thanking all our staff for the excellent support they have given us over the last 20 years. We also thank all of those who have instructed us as their solicitors, and worked with us.
