We are pleased to announce that Laura Jeffrey joins us today as a paralegal in our Family Department.She comes to us from Hudgell & Partners in Woolwich where she was discharging a similar role.
This followed her securing an Upper Second Class Honours Degree at the University of Essex, followed by the successful completion of the Legal Practice Course in London in which Laura secured a Distinction.
Her joining us means that we now have 4 fee earners in the Family Department which will stand us in good stead when it comes to the LSC awarding contracts to run from this October.
Gemma Duckworth, Head of our Family Department commented:-
“I am delighted that Laura will be joining us. She comes with a strong academic background combined with hands on experience in working in a Legal Aid High Street firm much like our own. She complements our existing team extremely well and I look forward to her developing her career with us”.
Laura herself commented:-
“I am pleased to be joining a progressive firm like Fairweathers and am excited by the opportunities that the position provides. Family Law has always been my passion and I am equally committed to Legal Aid work so Fairweathers is the ideal choice for me. I look forward to working with everyone and to progressing my career here.”
