Sophie Graham


Sophie brings a wealth of knowledge with over 12 years’ experience working in the legal industry. She moved to Australia from the United Kingdom in 2011 and worked in various law firms across Australia.

Sophie began working with Claire McKenzie in early 2023 and it was apparent that they work well together. She then joined Paterson & Dowding as a Paralegal in late 2023 and works in our Mandurah office with Claire.

Sophie prides herself in achieving the best for her client’s and empathises with them as she understands that client’s come to us during a difficult time in their lives. Therefore, she aims to deal with their matters as efficiently as possible.

In her spare time Sophie enjoys spending time with her husband and two young daughters, riding her horses and spending time outside on their acreage property.
