What would your dream job be?

I’ve always had an interest in the law and want to work my way up the legal ladder but I suppose if I could have a dream job it would be a wine and cheese taste tester!

The Good Wife or Miranda

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

Working in the Private Client department you deal with client’s personal and financial affairs. These can include probate matters, administering a loved one’s estate or Court of Protection applications. It is very rewarding knowing that you have helped a client in a stressful, sad and difficult time in their lives.

Who would you most like to meet and why?

I would have loved to have met Audrey Hepburn just because she is fabulous

What is the most difficult aspect of your job?

As a Trainee I am given a variety of work involving many different areas of law from different fee earners. It could be an area of law that I have not come across before and I need to research. The law is always evolving and you need to evolve with it.
