Niamh started her legal journey as a Receptionist at a Criminal Defence Solicitors when she was 19 with no previous experience. Within 6 months she had trained as a Secretary dealing with Magistrates Court work and then later moving up to dealing with Crown Court cases where she assisted in more of a Paralegal role. This involved going to prisons and taking instructions from clients, sitting in conferences and dealing with client files in depth. She was at her last firm for 4 1/2 years before deciding it was time to broaden her experience and knowledge.
She now works within the Dispute Resolution Team at rhw, supporting two lawyers. Niamh also provides support to the Employment Department.
Niamh is due to start a Level 4 Executive Legal Secretary/PA Diploma course in her own time online to develop her skills and professionalism.
