We asked colleagues from across our business to share why they’re proud to work for the family law company.  Here is what trainee legal executive Zoe Hewines had to say.

I joined The Family Law Company in 2017 as a Legal Secretary following spending 8 years out in Germany with my husband.  I am not local to Exeter or even Devon originating from the Midlands and I was worried I would be an “outsider”.  That has never been the case and everyone made me feel so welcome.  Exeter is a beautiful city and has the benefit of a bustling city centre on your doorstep as well as there being a beach at Exmouth a short 20 minute journey away.

I loved the job from the get go! It was so different from anything I had done previously and I never thought I would ever work in a law firm.   I work with a fabulous group of people who are both colleagues and friends.

After 6 months of working at The Family Law Company I knew I was ready to take the next step in my career.  With the help of TFLC I began my studies with the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx).  This was a way of becoming a lawyer that I never knew existed and The Family Law Company have been hugely supportive of me throughout my studies so far.

I love the job I do and the fact that we assist people through the worst times in their lives.  I work in the children and domestic abuse team and find it incredibly rewarding helping people to move on from their perpetrators.  To see the change in a client from when they first walk through the door to when their matter finishes and they leave a more confident person who is ready to take on the next step of their life is truly amazing.
