High Praise from Former Trainee

“Work experience is a wonderful thing. Without it I doubt I or many other lawyers would be in the position they are in today. I was fortunate to have found a local firm willing to entertain me for a fortnight during a school placement, which progressed to regular (paid work) in the school holidays and ultimately to a training contract.”
Kevin then went on to comment on the firm’s staff development ethos. “At the same firm employees who may have started out as administrative assistants had the opportunity of training to become secretaries, then legal executives and for some eventually qualify as solicitors. An investment was made by the individuals who spent much of their free time studying and learning. Given time, the pay scale reflected the commitment of both sides”
Atherton Godfrey would like to thank Kevin for his kind remarks and will continue to develop the legal talent of tomorrow.
