Family Law Solicitor

We are:
Judge & Priestley, a leading law firm in Bromley, on the South London/Kent border.  We are a modern, progressive firm in a state of continual growth. We have a loyal client base which is ever growing.

We understand the importance of our people; the practice has been accredited by Investors in People since 2005, which is recognised across the world as a mark of excellence in 'putting people first'. The practice also ranks as a Legal 500 firm, is listed in the reputable Chambers Guides, and is Lexcel accredited.

You are:
Efficient, confident and an excellent communicator who is able to clearly and concisely advise clients, as well as communicate with colleagues to share ideas in order to progress cases. 

Your great communication skills are also very helpful when it comes to networking externally and working with your colleagues to play your part in growing the department.

You like to work with colleagues to get the best outcome for clients and you understand the importance of excellent client care, with a desire and the clear ability to manage and meet client expectations.

At Judge & Priestley we pride ourselves on being expert, professional and friendly and we have high expectations that you pride yourself on the same.

You have:

• Ideally, 1-2 years PQE in private practice family (advice and litigation), or else you might be a NQ Solicitor with a background in family law which goes beyond a standard 6-month training contract seat (such as good experience as a family paralegal prior to your training contract, or perhaps you completed a 6-month seat).
• Confident communicator with good relationship building skills.
• Able to work independently.
• Self-motivated and driven.
• Knowledge of Excel and Word, with an affinity for learning new software packages.
• Must have a flexible attitude to work and time.
• Ability to prioritise caseload.

You will:
Work alongside an excellent Associate Solicitor with great experience in his field.  Working on your own caseload, support and guidance will be available from the Associate Solicitor with more complex issues but you must be able to work independently in many instances and be confident enough in your skills to offer support when needed.

As well as working independently you will need to share ideas and ask for help when necessary.  Sometimes you will work together with the Associate Solicitor on cases so you must be able to shine when working in a team too.

This is a great opportunity to join an expanding department.

Salary: £35,000 per annum
