Soraya Mehdizadeh

Legal Assistant


I am originally from Hull, but I studied in Leeds where I got my Law degree at Leeds Beckett University. I stayed on after my degree to do my master’s degree and LPC and will be graduating in summer of 2023.

Thrives founder, Jodie Hill was actually my post-grad employment law teacher at university. She was an excellent teacher and got interested in the employment area of law, so when an opportunity to work for her presented itself I was thrilled to join the Thrive tribe.

My hopes for the future are to qualify as a solicitor and I feel Thrive is a great firm to help me eventually achieve that goal. I am currently working as a Legal Assistant which I love. It is my first professional job role in law, and I feel very lucky to have such amazing mentors around me.
