Reference: EL

I am currently training within the Family Department with a view to qualifying as a Legal Executive. I deal with the full range of family related legal matters including divorce, separation, cohabitation and children matters.

This includes:

  • Taking instructions.
  • Instructions to counsel i.e. barristers and other professionals.
  • Attending court to support counsel as and when required.
  • General enquiries concerning existing, potential or future cases.

A typical day consists of:

  • Dealing with potential clients on the telephone and face to face.
  • Taking initial instructions for the family department including obtaining background details from clients.
  • Arranging convenient appointments for clients.
  • Creating files for clients and entering information onto our Case Management System to ensure continuity of correspondence and documentation.
  • Drafting and typing letters, statements, documentation and file notes.
  • Taking messages from clients and other solicitors via email and post.
  • Advising clients of any updates or progress on their individual cases.
  • Dealing with outstanding Debt Matters for the firm.
  • Ensuring all client files and correspondence are kept tidy and in chronological order.
  • Providing reception cover during lunch breaks and holiday periods.

I help assist Erika Williman, Head of Family Department to deal with all aspects of family matters including:

  • Divorce
  • Separation
  • Cohabitation
  • Prenuptial Agreement
  • Financial Settlement
  • Children
  • Domestic Violence
