Introducing Jesse Martin

I am a recent addition to the Everingham Solomons business and property team.

I grew up in the New England on beef cattle farming properties around Glen Innes. Growing up I loved the rural lifestyle and campdrafting.

Tamworth offers a great country lifestyle and my fiancé and I moved here in 2021.

I started my Law degree at Bond University before finishing at the University of New England.

After graduating in 2020, I moved to Brisbane where I worked in a leading Agribusiness and Property Law team at a well-known Queensland law firm. I gained experience across a range of property sales and acquisitions from large cattle station aggregations to commercial properties.

When I’m not in the office I enjoy spending time on the family farms, catching up with friends at horse events or a day out on the water attempting to ski.

At Everingham Solomons, I work with Clint Coles in the Business Law team where I focus on property sales and purchases from residential conveyancing to rural and commercial transactions. We also specialise in business sales and purchases, leasing and succession planning.

As a lawyer, I enjoy helping people with transactions to make the process as simple as possible while protecting their interests. I look forward to doing this for the local community as part of the Everingham Solomons team, where Helping You is Our Business.

Great news – the applications are now open for the Sir Adrian Solomons Memorial Law Bursary

Everingham Solomons are pleased to announce that once again a Tamworth, Quirindi, Gunnedah or Manilla Year 12 student wishing to undertake university study in Law will have a valuable opportunity to receive the benefits of our Law Bursary.

The Sir Adrian Solomons Memorial Law Bursary has long provided financial assistance for the successful applicant during their first year of university as well as an opportunity to gain valuable paid work experience in our offices periodically throughout the duration of their studies.

Everingham Solomons will also be making a cash donation to the school of the successful applicant to assist in maintaining the excellent educational standards that our region can offer.

Local High Schools have been contacted and advised of the details. Interested students should liaise with the Principal or Careers Advisor of their school, who will assist them in making a formal application for this Bursary.

We emphasise that the selection process does not depend solely on academic merit. We appreciate that students come from a variety of backgrounds and accordingly the selection process concentrates on the attributes of the student as a whole, rather than solely academic achievement.

The Bursary has gained widespread interest since its inception and continues to provide a valuable opportunity for current Year 12 students wishing to pursue a legal career. The Bursary is also open to students currently undertaking a gap year who will be commencing university study in 2023.

Everingham Solomons view the Bursary as a continuing commitment to young people in the communities of Tamworth, Quirindi, Manilla and Gunnedah and we encourage interested students to apply. Applications will be accepted until Thursday, 12 January 2023.

Fundraising Boost For Service As Tamworth Solicitors Celebrate Milestone

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service (WRHS) is proud to announce a new event partnership with Tamworth based Everingham Solomons Solicitors, as the law firm celebrates its 150th anniversary of serving the North West.

The partnership, with an investment of $20,000, will give five of the Service’s prestigious local events critical support, after two years of disrupted fundraising through the pandemic and natural disasters.

“We are excited in 2022 to be able to deliver our signature events again to the New England North West, as well as adding some new ones. This support from Everingham Solomons will play a valuable role in ensuring the Rescue Helicopter is ready to respond to those who need it in our region,” said WRHS Event Coordinator Jeff Galbraith.

Everingham Solomons Solicitors Director George Hoddle says the 150th anniversary provides the ideal opportunity to acknowledge an incredible milestone for the company whilst supporting a well-respected and trusted local charity.

“This year marks 150 years serving North West NSW since 1872. Charities and events have had a tough time in recent years so we really wanted to give back to the community as part of our anniversary celebration rather than hold a private function. The chance to support such an important charity that plays a vital role in the community made this the ideal scenario,” said Everingham Solomons Director George Hoddle.

“At Everingham Solomons, helping you is our business and this aligns perfectly with the Westpac Rescue Helicopter who help people in their greatest time of need. We look forward to supporting the Rescue Helicopter throughout the year,” Mr Hoddle announced.

The agreement will see the iconic Tamworth law firm sponsor a series of WRHS fundraising events across the New England North West region throughout 2022, including the Tamworth Rescue Ball, Golf Day, Charity Race Day, Ride for the Chopper and other regional events, with all funds raised supporting the Service’s Tamworth Base.

Oxley High School graduate awarded Sir Adrian Solomons Memorial Law bursary as she embarks on law degree

The wheels of justice will continue to turn with the help of one Tamworth teenager.

Despite online learning and COVID-19 disruptions, Oxley High School graduate Isabella Clapham’s outstanding year 12 results were recognised with the Sir Adrian Solomons Memorial Law Bursary from Everingham Solomons Solicitors on Friday, as she embarks on a law and commerce degree at the University of Newcastle.

Ms Clapham said she was thrilled to receive the bursary, which provides her with a paid clerkship at the firm and $1,500 to assist with her relocation and study needs.

“I know heaps of people at law school who are very jealous because they all want that work experience, and it’s a really good law firm so I’m really excited,” Ms Clapham said.

While she’s yet to decide what area of law she wants to go into, Ms Clapham is hoping the work experience gives her a taste of all her options.

Director at Everingham Solomons, George Hoddle, said the work experience would help Ms Clapham stand out from the crowd.

“The practice of law is very different from the study of law,” Mr Hoddle said.

“So knowing that they have practical exposure holds them in good stead.

Each year the bursary is awarded to a local student with the hope they’ll return to Tamworth to help service the region.

Deputy principal at Oxley High School Mark Baldwin said he wasn’t surprised by Ms Clapham’s achievements given her work ethic.

“She’s the classic example of what we try and say to students,” Mr Baldwin said.

“If you put in the hard yards, it’s a long process, but in the end you’ll get the reward.”
