What makes me tick?

What makes me tick is being able to assist clients throughout what can be a very difficult time. Explaining “legal jargon” in a way which they can understand and making procedures and documents clear to those who are not familiar with them is very rewarding. I like things to be done quickly and efficiently and insist on having an organised file and work space to enable the transaction to run as quickly and smoothly as possible for our clients, although I can occasionally sound like a bit of a nag to the other side!

My experience

I started working in the legal sector in 2000 and worked my way up to manager level of the family department at another local firm. Having undertook paralegal and Ilex courses, I have a vast knowledge of both legal procedures and working within a legal environment. I am looking forward to gaining further knowledge and developing my career in administration and additional areas of law at James Legal.

Outside of work

Outside of work I love spending time with family and friends. I can usually be found watching period dramas whilst researching my future fur baby (an English Bulldog) which I plan on having in the next 2 years. I enjoy cleaning and organising my home, which may sound mad, but I genuinely love putting my music on and getting things sorted!

What I do?

  • Assisting Dominic Hudson and Leon Lurie
  • Ensuring that James Legals Beverley office runs smoothly
  • General admin and reception duties
