Our Team

Trusha Velji Director and Solicitor

Hi, I’m Trusha.  I set up Touch Solicitors in August 2011 with the sole purpose of being able to work how I wanted.  If I have helped make a difference in a person’s life, for me my knowledge and training has been well utilised.

With this principle in mind, I have set up seven different advice surgeries across Greater Manchester.  The aim being to allow the vulnerable members of our community to have access to good advice without feeling committed.

I have worked from home for nearly six years running my firm, a household and raising my two beautiful girls.  I sit on the board of Trustees for Talbot House and present talks to various voluntary and private sector organisations.

During this time, I have continued to better my skills and completed the internationally recognised qualification, STEP.  The letters “TEP” representing Trust and Estate Practitioner now follow my name.  I then completed my professional accreditation of Solicitors for the Elderly.  As I work a lot with people with dementia, I completed my training and am now a Dementia Champion.

I am passionate and dedicated to my career and the work I do.

My vision for the firm is simple.  To work hard and advise well.

2018, I have been shortlisted as Sole Practitioner of the Year by the Law Society. This is an incredible lifetime achievement and I am truly humbled that the work I do can stand out amongst my peers.

Alison Clowes  Caseworker

Hi, I’m Alison.

I decided to move over to the other side having worked at the Probate Registry in Manchester.  I am keen to utilise my knowledge and experience at Touch Solicitors having worked so close with District Registrar!

I have a background in care work, with qualifications in dementia and elderly care, and also a large working history of customer care roles and am excited to expose my skills to take me further!

I am a Civilian Instructor at the local Air Cadet Unit and a Standard Bearer and Poppy Appeal Organiser for the Saddleworth Branch Royal British Legion. Within this I also have a very active part working with the Saddleworth Rotary and Oldham Metro Rotary, in the organising of the annual Wellifest and Saddleworth Show.

If you catch me with some spare time, I can usually be found exploring new destinations and adventures with my camera, reading, at the local rugby club or at the cinema!  In my short time at the firm, I have discovered I am in mutual company of thrill seekers as I myself have thrown myself out of a plane and cannot wait to see what this new adventure with the firm holds for me!
