Family law specialist Stephanie Mendoros does an Amal


A rookie barrister has thrilled fans of Marks & Spencer’s underwear by snagging the star of its ad campaign.

Stephanie Mendoros, a junior family law and crime specialist at London’s Staple Inn Chambers, apparently began dating David Gandy in May. But now The Sun is reporting that it has got serious between the pair after they “went public” at an art exhibition in London over the weekend. Pictures of the couple also appeared on social media.

Mendoros was called to the bar in 2008 having completed the Bar Professional Training Course at BPP Law School. She then did a spell as a prosecutor at the London Probation Trust before obtaining pupillage at Staple Inn in 2014.

Just like Doughty Street’s Amal Clooney, the junior tenant is keeping a dignified silence about her other half. Indeed, so low key is she that her chambers profile doesn’t even have a photo.

But already hooking up with a celebrity is working wonders for Mendoros’ career, with The Sun labelling her “a top barrister” despite the fact that the rookie only began practising as a tenant last year.
