Our People

David Pett

David Pett - Solicitor & Director

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.

After successfully completing my Legal Administration Level 3 diploma in 2007, I secured a role at a local law firm within the Conveyancing Department as a Departmental Assistant. I then progressed within the department to become a Conveyancing Assistant and recently joined Morgan and Pett as a Paralegal.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend, family and friends. I love shopping, wining and dining and I try to go to the gym three times a week. I also love jetting off now and again to a sunnier climate.

Ben Pett

Ben Pett - Head of New Business

I graduated from the University of Warwick having obtained a first class degree in History. I then converted to a law degree with the University of Law in Birmingham.

I have spent time gaining legal experience at firms in both London and Birmingham, before joining MJP full-time. I have since had exposure to dealing with property sales and purchases, becoming head of the Sales Team in 2016. I have recently switched my focus to business development and looking to help the firm grow in my new role as Head of New Business.

Outside of the office, my main interests are sporting. I am a big Manchester United fan, while I equally enjoy watching cricket, rugby and the NFL. I am member of the MJP five-a-side team, which (admittedly with mixed success) competes in a local league and against other firms.

Kerry Codling - Legal Executive

My passion for law began several years ago when I was working for a solicitor’s firm as a legal secretary and I began my studies at that time. However due to a change in circumstances studying, working full time and raising my children was not practical so I made the difficult decision to put my studies on hold. Now my children are older it’s my time to have the career I always wanted and I am now studying to become a Legal Executive. When I’m not working or studying I enjoy spending time at the coast with my children and our very lively cockapoo!
