Legal Secretary - Dispute Resolution and Residential Property

What's your role?

I am a Legal Secretary currently working with Litigation and Residential Property.

Your experience

My experience in law began as a 16 year old office junior, part of my duty was to provide relief for  the switchboard operator/receptionist and we used “doll’s eye switchboard” – my how times have moved on!   I have worked for solicitors  in various fields of law and found that my experience in working in hospitals as an auxiliary nurse when the children were small came into the fore when I worked  with a personal injury lawyer – it all made sense and I could spell the medical terms!
