We are heartbroken to announce the death of our much loved and respected friend and colleague, Melissa Polglase, who tragically passed away on Thursday 27th July.
Our hearts go out to her family and loved ones and we send out deepest condolences to them at this awful time.
Mel joined Penderlaw in 2015. She began her training contract in 2017, qualifying as a solicitor in 2019, and had become highly regarded in her chosen field of litigation.
Mel was a complete force of nature; brave, intelligent, energetic, and passionate about her work. She was also a real live wire outside of the office, ready to grab any opportunity that came her way.
We will all miss her beautiful smiling face, and are finding it so hard to take in the news that our wonderful friend and colleague has passed away at such a young age.
