Aqueelah Simmons has joined Chancery Legal Ltd as an associate in the litigation department.

The Bermudian attorney’s main practice areas are civil and criminal litigation, family/matrimonial law and immigration law.

Since October 2022, Ms Simmons has been a regular counsel at the Free Legal Advice Clinic, located at The Centre on Angle Street.

Ms Simmons worked in the Department of Public Prosecutions as a Crown counsel, following her call to the bar on 12 November 2021.

She appeared at all levels of the Bermuda Court system, namely the Magistrates’ Court, the Special Courts and the Supreme Court of Bermuda.

Ms Simmons was approached to join the firm after Mark Pettingill, a director of Chancery Legal observed her advocacy skills one day in the Magistrates’ Court.

She commented: “Working at Chancery Legal with Katie Richards and Mark Pettingill has been a dream come true. I never thought that I would be approached by such an esteemed member of the Bermuda Bar and law firm, at this early stage of my career.”
