Profile / Experience

I joined Duncan Lewis as a caseworker in the childcare department in November 2016. Prior to my employment at Duncan Lewis, I studied Law in Italy, expanding on my knowledge by undertaking legal work at several Italian firms. Most of the work I carried out was litigation based.


In the UK, I trained as legal assistant in a London firm whilst studying for my LLB Law degree. As a Legal Assistant, my work varied from Conveyancing, Trusts, Litigation, Private Clients, Insolvency, Attorney, Tax Credit, Wills, Drafting of Insolvency letters, Documents advising of Debt collections & other documents, as well as attending court and client meetings.


My duties also included translating legal documents from Italian and Spanish into English (or vice versa).


I eventuality graduated in Law from Kingston University in 2016. I have currently enrolled onto the Legal Practice Course, which I am due to start in February 2017.


During my academic career, I was acting for Government bodies as an Advice Support Worker at the Kingston Citizen Advice Bureau. At the Citizens Advice Bureau, I assisted in casework and produced statistical and written materials.


In addition, I was appointed as Legal Adviser for the Community Legal Advice Centre, where I was responsible for identifying and advising on various law issues, responsible for detecting and advising on company, immigration, international trade and criminal law issues.


Over time I have developed good negotiation skills and understand how essential it is to empathise with clients. Furthermore, my language skills and work experience enable me to relate to a wide range of people.


My reason for joining Duncan Lewis is that I am convinced that the firm’s outstanding reputation will provide me with the requisite skills needed to effectively support and assist families. Since joining the firm I have been involved on a variety of matters, including attending meetings with clients, preparing court bundles, day to day case management and clerking hearings.
