My main role is to assist the Solicitors and the support staff in the busy Personal Injury Department. I am a point of contact for new clients and have a friendly, approachable manner. I am also a float secretary two days a week, moving around all the departments and four branches of the firm, which gives me a wide understanding of all the areas of law and enables me to support the Solicitors efficiently. I enjoy the busy environment and sense of achievement that this job provides.
Areas of expertise

My route to Ellis Jones
After working as a receptionist in a law firm, I was promoted to a legal secretary and later to a Senior Partner’s Secretary working in not only Personal Injury but various other areas of law. After taking a short break from a career in law, I later decided to return to the job that I enjoyed, and after a short time as a temp working at Ellis Jones, the firm decided to employ me and I now enjoy the position as a permanent legal secretary.
