OUR PEOPLE


David Pett - Director/Solicitor

David Pett

David Pett is the Director and Senior Solicitor at MJP Conveyancing.

Prior to this, David studied Law in Nottingham and became a solicitor in 1982.

During his career, David has helped and met thousands of different and interesting people. He has 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.

David is not a lawyer who only thinks about the law, he knows there is much more involved in resolving legal problems and handling and guiding people through the formalities involved in buying and selling property. His pet hate is the illusion some solicitors give about how complicated it is to move home. David is not saying it is simple, but in the main it is straightforward and should therefore be an enjoyable experience.

Outside of work, David’s football interest lies with Manchester United and he has followed the team since the age of 8. Football is David’s passion and he has had the pleasure of working in the industry advising and assisting professional footballers as well as meeting famous managers and ex-players along the way. David also enjoys photography.
