How did you end up working for a law firm? Whilst at school in Northern Ireland, I went on a school trip to a major civil trial at the Courts of Justice in Belfast. I was fascinated by the whole process and from then on only ever wanted a career in law.
Unusual fact: I was on a BBC Children’s programme called ‘Why Don’t You?’ in 1980. I thought my white canvas flares and dolly sandals were the height of fashion but 30 years on my children just think I look hilarious.
Really satisfied with everything that was done for me.
Very friendly, very accommodating, very genuine, not rushed and spoke clearly and precisely. Wonderful service.
