We are pleased to announce the promotion of our Legal Executive Donna Hart to Associate status. Donna joined us in 2005 and her story is an inspiring one of dedication and perseverance. Donna has not only worked her way up from secretary to lawyer, but did so simultaneously juggling a career, a family life and the intensive study and revision the qualification demands.
“I’m delighted,” said Donna. “With the teams support I have had the opportunity to gain real-world experience and practical skills, and I now have a wonderful career as a family lawyer at one of the largest family law specialists’ in the country. Like many people I didn’t want to go through University and I now know that I made the right choice.”
Norman Hartnell, Director said, “Donna is an ambitious, talented lawyer who has already gained great experience with us. She has proved herself to be a committed individual who is focused on high quality client care and is completely in tune with our approach to look at client’s family problems as matters which need to be solved, not battles that need to be fought. Donna is truly passionate about family law and she receives outstanding praise and feed-back from our clients who are going through a very traumatic time in their lives. Her experience, enthusiasm and dedication will be an integral part of the firm’s growth, which includes the opening of our second Exeter office and a new Plymouth office this Autumn. ”
Donna has worked in the legal profession for twelve years and is an Associate of the Institute of Legal Executives and Secretary for the Devon ILEX Branch.
