OUR PEOPLE


David Pett - Director/Solicitor

David Pett

I studied in Nottingham and became a solicitor in 1982

I have during my career helped and met thousands of different and interesting people. I have worked in various different areas of the law, handling personal injury claims, advising on family and employment issues, acting for boxers and professional footballers, and more recently guiding sellers and buyers of property.

I am not a lawyer who only thinks about the law, I know there is much more involved in resolving legal problems and handling and guiding people through the formalities involved in buying and selling property. My pet hate is the illusion some solicitors give about how complicated it is to move home. I am not saying it is simple, but in the main it is straightforward and should therefore be an enjoyable experience.

My football interest lies with Manchester United and I have followed the team since the age of 8. Football is my passion and I have had the pleasure of working in the industry advising and assisting professional footballers meeting along the way famous managers and ex-players. I also enjoy photography.

Charlotte Cottam - Client Relations & Compliance Manager

Charlotte Cottam

I graduated from Liverpool John Moores University with a degree in Business and Public Relations and began working at MJP Conveyancing a year later.

In my role as Client Relations Manager I took the stance that if I didn't understand the legal jargon surrounding conveyancing, neither would our clients. I ensure the information we give our clients is easily understood if, like me, you do not have a Law degree. Buying and selling properties can be a daunting experience, but it doesn't have to be! At MJP we want our clients to feel confident in their decisions, and in managing compliance I ensure that both our staff and clients understand what is expected of them.

In my spare time I enjoy a trip or two down to my local pub and hunting for mid-century furniture around car boots and antique stores.
