Name: Kristi Ashworth
Job title: Paralegal / New Client Coordinator
What does your job involve?
My job involves dealing with new enquiries for the Family team and Legal Aid enquiries. Cartridges deals with a high volume of legal aid cases, so my days quickly become very busy!
What is the biggest misconception people have about your job?
That we can give free advice! In some cases Legal Aid may be available to help cover your legal costs, and we can advise you whether you may be eligible. This will depend on your circumstances and the nature of your case.
What do you like most about your job?
My favourite part of my job is contact with clients. I went into law because I wanted to help people in difficult situations, so being able to achieve that goal gives me a great feeling every time.
What would you say to someone considering a career in law?
Don’t take it lightly – law is not for the fainthearted. It can be intense, but is immensely rewarding.
What is your favourite thing to do in Exeter?
Paddleboarding down the river on a sunny day.
