SARAH MORGAN-KELLY

OWNER & DIRECTOR

I qualified as a solicitor in December 2004 and have been working within the legal profession since 1997. I studied and worked full time in London, trained in Brighton and started my firm (Sarah Edmunds Legal) in Lewes in 2008. I started specialising in residential conveyancing in 2002 so have over 15 years experience in the field I am most passionate about.

I changed the name of the firm, in 2015, to Morgan Kelly Solicitors – Morgan being my maiden name and Kelly being my new married name. I also moved the firm from Lewes to Nutley to be closer to home.

I undertake all legal work and conduct all transactions myself so you will always receive a professional and personal service.

When I have time (!) I am passionate about rock climbing, via ferrata, hula hooping, jewellery and shoes. I am married to Ben (who is part of the MKS team) and have a little girl, Matilda.

EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT

My background has predominately been in the Public Sector and I have always had a passion to help people. I love all things legal and governance and with my dream has always been to work in Law. When I met Sarah, I realised my dream had come true, not only do I get to be the Executive Assistant to her, I have the opportunity to learn and grow and be an integral part of ensuring all our Clients have everything they need when making their important life decisions.

On a personal front, I was married in 2016 to Neil and have 2 step sons Luke and Callum not to forget my Labrador Alfie! My free time passions include cycling, equestrian, fitness and sports photography so I am always busy doing one of those things.

I am thrilled to be working under the professionalism and guidance of Sarah in this beautiful part of Sussex where I now have the best view ever!

BACKGROUND

Morgan Kelly Solicitors (originally Sarah Edmunds Legal) was created in December 2008 by me, Sarah Kelly (nee Edmunds/Morgan), with the intention of providing legal services in a refreshing way. I qualified as a solicitor in 2004 at the age of 26, and have specialised in property work since that time. In 2008 I diversified to provide Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney, particularly to elderly and business clients. Along the way, I have developed a strong team who hold similar values and work in a similar way to me and are completely committed to providing the highest quality legal services in the most effective fashion. Ultimately, we love what we do and this allows us to provide a service which is second to none.

I have always believed that if you instruct someone professional, you expect them to have all appropriate qualifications and experience in that field. You expect us to know enough about the law to give you the correct advice. What you do NOT necessarily expect from a lawyer is excellent service. We spend much of our time improving our levels of service, whilst (of course) keeping our own legal knowledge and skills up to date by continuous training.

Research has revealed that our clients would like a solicitor who is :

  • trustworthy
  • approachable and friendly
  • proactive and efficient
  • flexible
  • excellent at communicating
  • affordable and clear on costs

OUR COMMITMENT

We have adopted a number of key service standards which have seen our client base grow exponentially in a short period of time. We now act for private clients and small businesses all over the world.

We understand that our clients are busy working, running businesses, looking after children and spending time with family. To help our clients, we:

  • Are able to visit our clients at home or at their office free of charge
  • Guarantee to deal with all correspondence on the same day we receive it
  • Guarantee to return all missed calls within 4 working hours
  • Are available to talk and meet with our clients outside of office hours

I have no desire to grow Morgan Kelly Solicitors in to a large firm – I believe it is better to have a small, committed team with smaller overheads, keeping the cost of the services we provide as low as possible and, certainly, very competitive.

It has always been important for us to add value to the service we provide so, in addition to the above, we also work with a network of trusted colleagues who are able to provide services such as mortgage brokers, surveyors, accountants, tax advisers and financial planners. We would never recommend someone we would not or have not used ourselves.
