What does your job involve?
My job involves dealing with clients and liaising with staff members and management to ensure we meet departmental targets whilst providing the best legal advice and client experience possible.
What do you like most about your job?
The best part of my job is client interaction. I went into law because I wanted to help people and being able to do that gives me huge satisfaction.
What is the biggest misconception people have about your job?
That it’s easy. The work we do can have a big impact on people’s lives, and the lives of their loved ones, so the stakes are always high.
What qualities or attributes do you think you need to work in law?
Good time management skills are absolutely paramount. You need to be able to work in an orderly and focused manner, be able to prioritise and think on your feet, and juggle not only your own workload but that of your colleagues too.
What has been the highlight of your career so far at Cartridges Law?
Surviving the pandemic, both the department and the firm as a whole. The last two years have been absolutely unprecedented but I am really proud of how we have risen to the occasion.
What is your top legal tip that everyone should know?
Don’t try and deal with legal issues yourself! And don’t believe everything you read on Google without checking with a legal professional.
